A home bazaar

Yesterday was the bazaar and let me just say it was a wonderful success. How many women can you fit into 480 square feet? (that's roughly the size of my dining, living and tatami room area where we held the bazaar). Good question, and the answer is quite a few. I could ramble on here, but a picture is worth a thousand words so I'll let he pictures talk for themselves instead.

 a few of my waterfall albums

 handmade lunch mats, bags and pencil cases

 phone straps, necklaces, bead accessories etc.

 beautiful display of beaded rings

 more bags

 some knit caps, coasters, booties, etc

 more bags

 mats, hair bands, coasters and bags

 tissue cases, bags, bags and some really cute birds

 preserved flower arrangements

 more preserved flower arrangements

 Ice Flower blocks

 more bags and cases

 more preserved flower arrangements 

 shoppers

 more shoppers

and more shoppers

Thank you so much to all the ladies who came and bought our handicrafts.

And last, but not least, here is a picture of my friends and me. I want to thank them all too. I had so much fun getting together with them planning this (during our eyelash perms) and yesterday during the actual bazaar. We're planning on doing this all again in November, the Christmas version. Sounds like fun to me!

Wow, Holly! Congratulations on that huge success!! I can't believe how amazingly talented you and all of your friends are to make all of those gorgeous items. I would have had the hardest time choosing. Most likely the amount of money in my wallet would have decided for me when to quit shopping. :) Way to go--can't wait to see the pics in November.

This looks so fun Holly! I love handmade stuff like that. I wish I lived closer, I would've loved to help too. What a fun event!

I didn't realise the bazaar was going to be at your house! What beautiful projects you all made. How did you get so many people to come? Did you advertise? I so would've come if I lived in Japan :)
