Dear Bazaar Bizarre Boston friends and neighbors,

2013 is a year of change for our organization, and we wanted to share some news with you.

Last month, The Small Craft Advisory met to discuss the future of the Bazaar Bizarre and came to the conclusion that we will no longer be presenting the Bazaar Bizarre Boston holiday show. We were nudged into this difficult decision by some unexpected challenges, but we feel that this change can be an opportunity to pursue new ways to support the local handmade community.

We're just plain sad that such a good thing has come to an end but we couldn't be prouder of the fact that the BBB was a volunteer-run event that brought so many people together to celebrate art, craft, and community for over twelve years! We know how much the show means to the vendors and to the shoppers who lined up around the block (sometimes in the snow!) just to get a peek inside.

The eight of us had a very hard time putting into words just how incredible the Bazaar Bizarre was. That one day every December was a meaningful part of our lives as entrepreneurs, artists, and friends.

We want to emphasize that even though The Small Craft Advisory is no longer running the BBB winter fair, we are still a group of artists dedicated to the local craft community. Until we hatch our next big plan, we've updated our website with a resource list including other shows and arts organizations that we hope you will find useful.

We hope you will stick with us in this creative cocoon phase to see what emerges.

Thank you so much for being a part of Bazaar Bizarre over the years.
