The Beehive Bazaar 2010 Spring Show is at Thanksgiving Point and I am thrilled! Usually I drive all the way down to Provo twice a year because I love the Beehive Bazaar THAT much, but this year it is even closer to Salt Lake City.

The Beehive Bazaar is Utah’s own independent arts and craft show highlighting trendsetting, one-of-a-kind, “you aren’t going to find this at the mall” handmade treasures. Never the same and always certain to surprise and delight, the show is replete with totally to-die-for jewelry, paintings, bags, glass, vinyl, paper, clothing and accessories as well as couture cupcakes, jams, cookies, caramels and treats. The Bazaar is not your mother’s craft boutique.This is where I go to find items no one else has seen (and on which I get compliments throughout the year) and to find a present for someone who has everything. This is my go-to place to pick up something nice for myself and the ones I love, something I know they will cherish throughout their lives.More than seven years ago Molly Call, Noelle Olpin and a few of their crafty friends and family decided they needed a venue where they could share their creations with others in their community. The first few events were held in their homes and attended by a handful of family and friends. Year after year additional artists have been added, larger crowds come to shop and the size of the venue continues to increase while the mission of the event has remained the same: always unique, only handmade and continually the best.This year the Beehive Bazaar is pleased to announce that Thanksgiving Point will be hosting the event—and it’s certain to be the best one to date. A VIP party will kick off the event with an evening of schmoozing with your favorite artists, food, music, door prizes and first-dibs shopping on all of the latest handmade goods. The show will also include additional days and artists as well as a more efficient check out process, so getting out of the Bazaar with all of your loot will be faster than ever!Dates and Hours~ Wednesday, May 5th: 8:00 p.m. til midnight (VIP Night)*~ Thursday, May 6th, 10:00 a.m. til 10:00 p.m.~ Friday, May 7th, 10:00 a.m. til 10:00 p.m.~ Saturday, May 8th, 10:00 a.m. til 8:00 p.m.* There will be a cover charge on Wednesday night.  All other days attendance is free.Read more from Vanessa Brown at www.sassyscoops.com.
