The Gypsy Bazaar

Ben Fulton Co-ordinator
When you first walk into The Gypsy Bazaar you do not know what to expect. Expect the unexpected. On Ben's business card it says "an eclectic collection of commerce". It all started with a place, a dilapidated old building, built in 1965 as a medical building. They moved in about three years ago and spent a lot of time fixing the broken plumbing and all that goes with an old building. They wanted to do something positive in the community. The Gypsy Bazaar is a place that Artists can hang their wares on consignment. If you are interested in learning they have a number of workshops they are organizing. Yoga, Origami, sewing, nutrition to name a few.

As you can see The Gypsy Bazaar is an eclectic collection of commerce, They also have furniture, but it sells quickly. I have only mentioned a few artist showing at the Gypsy Bazaar, and I think it will evolve. It is not the kind of place you go in and see it all, every time you go in you will see something different. Hope to see you there.
