Firm Foundation Christian School Bazaar

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
1919 SW 25th Avenue in Battle Ground

This smaller bazaar is warm and welcoming. It helps fund student activities. You’ll find hand made items and door prize drawings throughout the day. Home baked goods are available for sale.

Holiday Bazaar Changes
Some of your favorites may be on hold this year. The huge holiday event at the Clark County Event Center in Ridgefield is not being held. They just couldn’t compete with all the free events surrounding them. And the popular recycled gift fair usually held at the Marshall Center is on hold due to family illness.

So try some of these popular events and add in a few new ones you might not have visited before. Shop small and local for the holidays.
