Samuel Gabel, Company A, 2-13th Aviation Regiment, assist Holiday Bazaar vendor Joyce Geerlings-Griffith with setting up her booth Nov. 15, which carried goods from the Huachuca Arts Association. The Soldiers volunteered to help transform Barnes Field House into a holiday shopping experience.

Shoppers received a head-start to holiday season shopping Saturday and Sunday at the 5th annual Fort Huachuca Community Spouses Club, or FHCSC, Holiday Bazaar held inside Barnes Field House. This year, 96 vendors filled the facility’s gym with handmade items, artwork, clothing and jewelry and featured home-based businesses.

According to Donna Dean, FHCSC co-chair of the Holiday Bazaar, vendors come from as far as Phoenix to participate in the shopping event. This year the bazaar saw more new vendors than ever before. This was a juried show in which judges picked and chose among the businesses or individuals who would sell their goods.

“There are so many vendors; a juried event allowed some people to get in that have never been able to before,” Dean said.

Sasha Griffin, FHCSC president, added that the juried system brought in the “best of the best” vendors.

The bazaar is a FHCSC fundraiser. Each business or individual pays a booth fee. The proceeds are used for the FHCSC’s scholarship fund. This year the Holiday Bazaar raised $14,000.

Griffin said the event this year was well-attended. Over two days, an estimated 1,000 shoppers came through Barnes Field House.

The Holiday Bazaar is one of two big fundraising events of FHCSC during the holiday season. FHCSC will team up again with the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Dec. 15 for the Historical Tour of Homes.

Margaret Nuñez secures the banner to make her booth stand out. Nuñez, an independent distributor, sold an aloe-base moisturizer, Corium 21, at the Holiday Bazaar.

Holiday Bazaar vendor Edward Grondin of Ed’s Custom Creations brings his Saint Bernard Bella to help him sell his custom wood products. From left, Pamela Kuntz and her daughters Katherine, 11, and Grace, 7, give Bella lots of attention by rubbing her stomach.
