The annual Mackay Christmas Bazaar is always a fun event to attend to start the Holiday Season. What better place to buy handcrafted items made by local people. I love to give handcrafted gifts. Whether I make them or they are something that I pick up at a craft show or a bazaar. Gifts from these events just seem to say, I put some thought into this gift and bought you something special that just can’t be bought anywhere else. (More)
A great place to pick up unique gifts
I love going to the local events. I see people I haven’t seen for a while and so I get to visit as I shop. This is a great time to take a minute to catch up.
I had a booth that was filled with lots of crafty items. Of course I had “Slippers for Hannah, The Christmas Gift” and the newest book “Buffy’s Wish“. I enjoy signing the books and personalizing them for people. Also at my booth were Treasure Pouches for those little buckeroo’s to hold all those precious rocks they find and anything else they come up with. Another hit was Leather Purses for little girls. These are handcrafted by Hatch Tack. Also at my booth, the great scrubby washes. Specially made by Vickie and dishtowel dresses made by her daughter.
Other booths included handmade jewelry, woodworking, tye dyed shirts and socks, specially made cheesecake, bath bombs, Mackay Miners apparel, hand painted pictures on saw blades and other items. And of course lunch was served and there were more different kinds of treats than you could ever try.
Saturday was a great day. I really enjoyed it. If you get the chance to go to a local Bazaar or Craft Show, go and enjoy it. Pick up a handcrafted gift. I am sure you have a lot of talented crafters in your area also.
I am looking forward to the “Hometown Christmas” in my hometown Malad, Idaho on the 25th of November from 6-9 pm and the 26th from 9 am – 3 pm in the Senior citizen Center. If your close by stop and say hi.
Another event coming up is “The Festival of Tree”s in Arco Idaho. December 2-3rd.
