There will be an amazing number of Alaska artists and commercial vendors at the annual Seward Holiday Fair this weekend at the Train Depot. Once the train came from Anchorage with hundreds of people who wanted to see Santa Claus, and Seward, but then there was an avalanche warning and the railroad stopped the trains at Christmas to Seward. If we keep up our momentum, maybe they’ll change their minds again and bring up people from Anchorage which would bring big business to the town of Seward the first Saturday of every December.
Until then, we the artists who are coming to Seward this Saturday will rely on the people of Seward and surrounding area, yes, even Soldotna, to help make our bazaar a success. There will be almost 100 different types of possible gifts for those on your Christmas list. This year, make that present really special and get something that has been handcrafted by artists in Alaska. You’re also going to want to stock up on Scentsy products, dramatically effective antiaging face creams, candles, kitchen items, crystals, even the chain saw bear and moose carving guy Jamie, with a whole bunch of other incredible gifts you’ll only see at this bazaar. Make this a year to remember for the artists of Alaska, and do your Christmas shopping with us! This Friday we’re open 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and then all day Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Santa Claus might even be there this year!
You can take your time and go see every booth, then make up your mind and go back to get those wonderful gifts for your loved ones. One thing Alaska artists love above all things is a be-backer who actually comes back!
Come to the bazaar this weekend, and have a wonderful time! We’ll see you there!
