‘Bazaar with Heart’ happening in Bamberg
BAMBERG, Germany — Bargain hunters in Bamberg may be in for a good deal this weekend.
The Bamberg Spouses and Civilians Club (BSCC) is holding its annual “Bazaar With Heart” through Sunday at Warner Barracks. The bazaar is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
More than 40 vendors from as far away as Portugal and Holland are on hand, selling everything from Dutch cheese to antique furniture.
Anyone with a military identification card can shop and cash, checks and credit cards are all accepted.
“We hold the bazaar to raise money for the community,” said Vanessia Holland, a BSCC member.
When asked about bargains, Holland said that she saw a piece of pottery for sale that she paid double for on the local economy.
One of the main ways the bazaar is monetarily successful is through raffles, and every one of the participating vendors has contributed an item to be given away. A few larger-ticket items, such as a car navigation system, will also be given away.
“We’ve been selling since we opened. Everybody’s buying something. We’re not letting anyone leave without a bag,” Holland said Friday afternoon.
Holland added that although items are selling well, customers shouldn’t worry that things will sell out. “The vendors are constantly bringing in new merchandise.”
