Come to the Beehive Bazaar

A lot of you know, I do very few shows, but one that I try not to miss is the Beehive Bazaar. It is the best handmade craft show in the state of Utah. There are always great things and new ideas. I am not only a vendor but a shopper of the show as well. I always get some great stuff. So I'm working my little fingers to the bone every night and sorting through all the ideas in my head. If you live in Utah it is worth the trip to Provo. Come say hi!

The BB folks sent me their press release and art, so enjoy and I hope to see you there!

Always Unique, Only Handmade & Continually The Best

It’s got the frenetic energy of a punk show, the culture of an art gallery, the community of your local farmers market, oh and lest we forget, a superlative shopping experience that is truly unparalleled anywhere in the state—it’s Utah’s own, independent arts and crafts festival, the Beehive Bazaar.

For seven years and fourteen shows, Noelle Olpin, Molly Call and Duane Call have hosted the bi-annual show providing a stage for local artists and crafters to share their unique, handmade wares with the community.

“We’re selective” says Molly Call, “If we’re going to include something in the show, it’s got to be unique, quality, handmade and most of all something we’d want to buy—it’s not about quantity, it’s about showcasing the very best, every time.”

In addition, Noelle Olpin says, “We focus on keeping a balance of new vendors and Bazaar veterans so each show maintains an air of familiarity and comfort spiked with plenty of surprise.”

This season the Beehive Bazaar will be held at the Women’s Center in Provo Utah, “It’s always been a place where the community has gathered—it’s at the heart of the town, close to the park, the city pool and the baseball field. We love supporting local culture, and think it’s the perfect place.” Duane Call said.

The Winter 2010 vendors offer a wide variety of arts and crafts including paintings, prints, jewelry, glass, paper, felt, glass, ceramics, bags, skirts, aprons, dolls, cards, home d├ęcor, ornaments, jams, cookies, cupcakes and oh-so much more. This season’s vendors include:

I've heard such great things about the Beehive Bazaar! I'll have to come check it out this year.

...Actually, it would be a great place for my book, too, come to think of it!
