Golden Saturday Christmas Bazaar - not to be held in 2010 - but there is still ample opportunity to shop at the McCreery House this holiday season (see entry above)

You've heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, meet Golden Saturday! 

Black Friday's the day department stores and box stores emerge from the red and is known for elbowing, trampling, and shoving to get the best deal.

Cyber Monday generates massive amounts of online sales for faceless companies.

Golden Saturday?  Come meet the folks who make the stuff you want to buy.  We're not offering mass produced items made in China but homegrown and homemade wares that will stand out from the usual gifts this Christmas.  So, come on out and spend your Saturday after Thanksgiving shopping in a relaxed atmosphere enjoying the sights of the decorated McCreery House (listed in the National Registry of Historic Places) as you shop from selections presented by a host of unique vendors.  Sample wines, mead, cheeses, salsa, coffee, and other assorted fare as you make your way through the house finding gifts for all the hard-to-shop-for folks on your list this Christmas.

The Golden Saturday Christmas Bazaar will be held at the McCreery House in downtown Loveland.  There's ample parking and ample activities for everyone.

A complete list of participating vendors will be added to this site.  If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please e-mail

This sounds like a great event to help out those suffering from the current economic turmoil.  Check out: and for more information.

Wellington Annual Community Holiday Craft Fair (Eyestone Elementary, Wellington)

Eyestone Elementary in Wellington is hosting its annual Arts and Crafts Holiday Bazaar on November 14th.  This event is really quite spectacular (this will be my second year attending, and I was overwhelmed by the turnout last year as there are tons of great vendors at this fair).  The event begins at 9 am and runs until 3 pm, and if you're looking to do some Christmas shopping early, I highly encourage you to check this one out.
