Beginning this weekend, those looking for one-of-a-kind holiday gifts do not need to venture any farther than the local area. That’s because several bazaars are coming to churches, schools and civic centers. Eager shoppers will have the chance to support the local economy, buy handcrafted items and avoid big box stores.
Below is the list of several bazaars compiled by the Post-Record.
