Announcing the Bizarre Bazaar
October 4 – November 22

Since we can’t have a DWC Bazaar (which was so successful and fun last year) or even a Country Store we will have a Bizarre Bazaar in 2020.

I am asking DWC members to contribute an art or craft item, baked goods, canned goods, an experience, or other marketable item over the next few weeks. Friends might consider making up a basket like we did in previous years and make the baskets a part of this event. How about a COVID basket?
What would you put in it?
Whatever you decide email me with the item (with a suggested value) and if possible take a photo of it with your cell phone or tablet.  roseyrita@mac.com

I will be putting 4-5 items up for bidding every week through Mail Chimp every Sunday. Photos and items will be on the DWC website, Facebook and Instagram.

There will be one week to bid and highest bidders get the item. More items will be put up the next week and so on. The bazaar will begin October 4 and run through November 22. My committee will notify the winners each week and set up pick up and delivery and payment by check.
Here are examples: Gourmet dinner by Marissa Hoogenakker, Mah Jongg lessons, seasonal wreaths and swags, watercolor lessons by me, or even “how much would you pay not to make 12 dozen cookies?”
We won’t make thousands of dollars but we can make hundreds of dollars to keep the heat on and pay the taxes. It might even be FUN! I want to see some COVID baskets!
Start thinking now and email me those ideas, roseyrita@mac.com
Thanks, Rosemary Guttormsson,
