Holiday bazaars abound

Variety of crafts, ornaments, foodstuffs and more at Central Oregon fairs

Published Oct 27, 2013 at 05:00AM

It's still October, but the holiday season is already here. Ready or not, it's time for sparkly Christmas ornaments and the smell of fresh pine boughs. Think hand-knitted mittens, handcrafted toys (for all those good girls and boys), peppermint and the gentle strains of “It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” playing in the background.

But it's also the season of giving. Can't figure out what to put under the tree for your loved one? Holiday bazaars are here to help you do just that. From handmade gifts and baked goods to antiques and ornaments, give a little joy and, potentially, support a nonprofit with your purchase.

So let your “sleigh bells ring” and head out for some shopping!
