Brookings Harbor Community Bazaar

Brookings Harbor Community Bazaar....
46 Years and Counting!

Saturday, November 14, 2015

9 A.M. to 5 P.M

Plan now to come and enjoy the largest holiday bazaar on the southern Oregon coast.    Friends meet friends, old and new, and find incredible bargains in a delightful variety of handcrafted items.  Over 100 vendors fill two back-to-back gyms at Brookings Harbor Azalea Middle School and the High School.  This one day event has been happening for 46 years, and provides a means for local non-profits, church groups, and both local and out of town vendors to show their wares.

A favorite attraction each year is the white elephant "Christmas Grab Bag Tree."  Only $1 gets the customer a wrapped gift, marked by child, boy, girl, woman, man, etc.  Those funds go to pay our youth groups that help set up and take down the gyms each year.  

The Brookings Nite Family Community Education group has put the bazaar on each year.  Funds from the vendors pay for the venues, advertising, janitorial, and other costs.  The remaining funds are  put to good use in providing 4-H camperships and cultural and educational opportunities.  The greatest benefit, according organizers Vangie Andreason and Marilyn Shipley (tongue in cheek), is "the honor and the glory" of sponsoring such an amazing happening each year.    

 Interested in becoming a vendor? 

Follow these simple steps: Mark your calendar now for September 1st, after 9am, to call 541-469-2093 to register and get a booth number. Print out and read the "vendor registration" and "vendor insurance waiver" tabs of this website.  Sign the forms, put in your booth number, attach payment indicated and return to address shown by October 1st. Plan your booth or table to fit an approximate 8' x 6' space and get your handcrafted items ready. (Booth sizes vary somewhat depending on location.) Setup begins (depending on school use) between 5 and 7pm on Friday evening.  Check the doors for posted times that day. Venues open again at 7am Saturday for last minute setup before the 9am opening.  

 A waiting list is also kept when the spaces are full, and often those vendors are able to get space as previously registered vendors find need to cancel.      

  Is food available?

Yes, in a couple of ways.  A church bazaar across the street has a chili feed, and we are encouraging a couple of local food carts to park nearby.  A vendor is planning a hot spagetti to go plate, and will be located in the high school cafeteria.  You will have to go get it and we don't have price info at this time. 

A local pizzaria is willing to serve our vendors and this seems to work well.  They agreed to deliver to vendor booths any of the menu items, which include various sizes and types of pizza, calzones, lasagna, salads, breadsticks and more. Just call their number the night before, or up until 10 am Saturday.  High School Cafeteria vendors will be served between 11:30 and noon; Azalea gym orders will be delivered beginning at 12:30.

You won't need to order drinks.  Sodas, water, coffee, tea, etc. will be sold all day at the corner of each venue.    Call 541-469-8400 to order.
