One hundred shops in one room

Whistler’s biggest artisan fair makes Christmas shopping something to celebrate with the 18 th annual Bizarre Bazaar on Friday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Telus Conference Centre.

Last year, more than 5,000 shoppers crossed off their Christmas wish lists at the unique event showcasing more than 100 artisans from the Sea to Sky corridor and Lower Mainland.

A wide array of handmade crafts are available, including ceramics, clothing, fine art, wood, glass, metal, jewelry, candles, decorations and aromatherapy products.

Admission is by donation with funds supporting other Whistler Arts Council annual programs such as the Whistler Children’s Art Festival, ArtWalk and ARTrageous.

Check out a preview of the fair at the Art of Giving’s promotional tour of jeweler Rebekah Robertson’s Beads of Hope exhibit at the Whistler Public Library.

The 12-year-old Bizarre Bazaar participant is socially conscious beyond her years; she sponsors two children through the World Vision and Christian Children’s Fund in Indonesia and Nicaragua. Also through the sales of her jewelry, she raised $200 for the Christian Blind Mission.
