Camp Foster’s Spring Bazaar

This weekend there’s a spring bazaar at Camp Foster, with over fifty concessionaires to enjoy.  Many of the booths are military spouses selling there pieces and there are also locals selling furniture, artwork, and antiques.  It’s a great place to shop for one of a kind gifts for family and friends.  You can find anything from fishing poles to hair bows and tutus.  Today there was a live auction with beautiful pottery and artwork to bid on.  I would have to say the hand painted antiques are definitely my favorite, the blue pieces are on my wish list before heading back to the states.

Hope you enjoyed a few of my pictures from today.  Tomorrow is the last day of the bazaar, so check it out, if you haven’t already.  Get started on your holiday shopping and show your support.  It’s all indoors, so no worries if it rains tomorrow.  The bazaar is inside the gym, which is behind the furniture store on Camp Foster.

Happy Easter
