Bazaar to benefit charities

Five local ladies are planning a bazaar—or what they call a bizarre bazaar—in which local artists and craftsmen will sell their wares and proceeds will benefit local charities.

Vicki Bailey, Mel Lovering, Kim Jeter, Laura Hawk and Diana Kirbo will host the bazaar on Sunday, Dec. 13, from 1 to 6 p.m., and on Monday, Dec. 14, from 2 to 7 p.m. at the Old Library on Broughton Street, which is across the street from the county administrative building.

Approximately 20 vendors will be there. Paintings, wood carvings, handmade soaps and skincare, and all types of artistic craft that include jeans fashioned with designs are among the items up for sale. The Sweet Shop and Hollycakes will also be selling goodies.

Kirbo said the bazaar is fashioned after the Skill Mill Market that local artists held years ago in Bainbridge.

Bizarre Bazaar T-shirts designed by Bailey will be sold at the bazaar and the proceeds, along with donations given at the entrance, will benefit Bags of Love, Clothes of Love and the Agape Shoppe, Kirbo said.
