Christmas bazaar returns to Barn this weekend
After skipping a year due to COVID-19, the Red Barn Christmas Bazaar returns to the Winthrop Auditorium, aka the Red Barn, on Saturday (Dec. 11), said organizer Jain Johnson.
The free event will be from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and will feature local and regional artisans, crafters and makers selling a variety of wares, including pottery, candles, clothing, knitting, canned goods, salsa, photography, paintings, birdhouses, sewing creations and more.
An espresso stand will keep shoppers revved up, while baked goods will provide fuel. There may also be live music on site.
All shoppers and vendors are required to wear masks and following social distancing guidelines. Admission is free. Buying from Okanogan County artisans means you get quality goods and gifts with no shipping costs or delays, you support a local economy, and you contribute to the economic diversity and sustainability of our community.
