Old fashioned bazaar ready for Calumet

Photo provided by Lynn Anderson The 25th annual Old Fashioned Christmas Bazaar this weekend in the Calumet-Laurium-Keweenaw Schools gym is an opportunity to get some one-of-a-kind gifts for the holidays. The CLK Band will also be holding a fundraiser soup and salad lunch. 

CALUMET — A longstanding arts and crafts tradition in the Copper Country, the annual Old Fashioned Christmas Bazaar to be held Saturday in the CLK High School gymnasium is extra special this year, hitting an annual milestone of 25 years.

This year’s event features art and crafts wares from 30 local vendors.  

“It’s amazing that it’s been around that long. It started with some old ladies having a cup of coffee and saying that Calumet should have more events to celebrate Christmas,” said event organizer Lynn Anderson. “I’m so grateful for all of the people that keep supporting us.” 

Vendors will be selling paintings on canvas as well as on more creative materials like tree bark and saw blades, quilting, home-made mittens, jewelry, and much more.

“I try to find good variety. You don’t want everyone who is at all of the other craft shows. You don’t want everyone to be doing baskets,” said Anderson.  

Anderson herself is one of the vendors. She sells artfully repurposed containers and other goods. Her booth will also be giving away a free massage. Stop by for further details. 

There will also be baked goods and drinks, as well as a soup and salad lunch to raise funds for the Calumet High School Band. 

The 25th annual Old Fashioned Christmas Bazaar on Saturday offers holiday shoppers gifts for friends and loved ones, decorations for the home, a chance to win a free massage and lunch from the CLK Band.
