Vintage and handmade Christmas ornaments and holiday décor; hand-knitted animal-themed children’s hats and baby blankets, handmade soaps, gourmet rubs and spices, homemade almond military-themed gift items, jewelry, crafts and more tempted shoppers as Creswell Veterans of Foreign Wars Post and Auxiliary #4039 hosted their annual Holiday Bazaar on Nov. 19 and 20 at the Creswell VFW Hall.
Soup and sandwiches, snack foods and pie were for also for sale, and a handful of raffle baskets were awarded to some lucky shoppers.
“We had 23 vendors selling at 29 tables, so it was a pretty good turnout,” said Rick Higgins, Oregon VFW’s department judge advocate and former Creswell Post commander, while staffing the military collectibles table.
VFW Auxiliary member Debbie Wright, who manned the kitchen, said the flow of customers was steady.
“This is always a nice event,” she said. “People seem to like it.”
