Beehive Bazaar

14 comments
A few weeks ago Whitney, Shelbie, Allison and I went to the Beehive Bazaar in Provo. We got a card in the mail and looked at the website and decided it looked interesting. There is a bio on all the contributing artists and crafters on the website. Many of them have etsy stores. So even though the bazaar is only seasonal, in many cases their crafts are available all year round.
I forgot my camera. Sheesh. But I did have my iphone so I snapped a few and these are the only pics that turned out. This paper mache reindeer really caught my eye. It was really a work of art.
I wanted this wreath made with vintage balls, elves and deer. It's so kitschy. But it was just too pricey. It totally speaks to me but I left it behind. Sigh. Those elves kill me.
This artist makes cards and things. There were paintings and pictures all over that we liked. Of course I loved this owl.
This darling matryoshka was on a table with some really good things. There was so much to look at and admire.
There was quite a bit of jewelry. I did get a couple things for Christmas gifts. I just can't believe how talented people are.
This crafter had the best bags. They are kind of hip and vintage creations with new and vintage fabric and textures. She rough edges fussy cut applique on the front of each bag.
There were so many bags I loved. And they were very reasonably priced. I liked how she used trim and rings for the straps, too. See that house and tree bag in the back? A bag very similar to that came home with me.

You might take a look at the artists/contributors at the bazaar website if you still need a gift or two. I like to support local moms working from home.

I think you should have brought that owl bag home, too. CUTE things! It's fun to look at good craft bazaars, but I always wish I had more money to spend when I go to them. *sigh*

Looks like fun Nanette! I'd love to go to a bazaar in Utah. I went to one here after many years of not going. And then I realized why I quit going LOL!

I think that the reindeer and the wreath would have come home with me!

Thanks for sharing.

I love the Beehive Bazaar! Always such fun stuff there. I always feel my creative juices start flowing when I visit. This year I bought the coolest Family Tree project to put together. Beautiful design and something I could not do on my own. I'm so excited.

Oh, I could have brought home the little reindeer - other things, too - lucky I couldn't go!

The craft show looks like it was fun. I love craft shows!

I've been catching up with you. All of your Christmas decorations are gorgeous! I love the quilted table cloth stars and the yo yo garland. My garland is red and green pom poms that I bought on sale last year. Now I want a yo you one!

Allison is adorable! They are so much fun at this age!
