"Could you please please please mention this in the slog today?" asks a Slog tipper. "Help local artists and craftspeople pay rent!"
You work hard for that money, and you should spend it on stuff that kicks just as much ass as you do. At the Bizarre Bazaar, you’ll find uniquely bizarre wares for your holiday shopping pleasure. The Bazaar features gifts to fit many budget levels: jewelry made out of hardware, sexy men’s underwear, survival bracelets, badge bling, va-va-voom inspired flirty wear, delicious PacNW-inspired & -sourced snacks, gorgeous handmade wedding & party details, kusadama, puppet art (and/or art puppets), and very much more. Plus! A well-stocked mimosa bar and other beverage refreshments, as well as something for the holiday sweet tooth!
Parking is available on the street, or at any various neighborhood lots. (Favorite cheap one is the Seattle Central lot, at the corner of Pine & Harvard.) Also, you will not starve on Capitol Hill—grab a bite and come shop!
Bizarre Bazaar Saturday 12/17 11 AM-4 PM @ the Erickson Theatre, 1524 Harvard Ave. (On Capitol Hill, between Pike & Pine.)
Avoid the mall! Buy local! Admission is free! Come early! Bring cash!
