Looking Ahead by Looking Back

Bizarre Bazaar This Sunday in Maplewood

This Sunday, 12/11, is the Bizarre Bazaar, an annual holiday shopping event like no other! Located at The Woodland, a historic venue owned by the Township of Maplewood, the show runs from 10am-4pm. A highlight of this event is the Abominable Snowman who makes himself available for photo ops for a small donation to the promoters, Studio B. What a unique Christmas card that would make! I'll be featuring my snarky zipper pouches including my brand new Pet Pouches line and favorites like "beer money" and "tattoo money". I also look forward to bringing my carefully curated vintage books like...
