16 Days until the Odd Duck Bazaar

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this year's Odd Duck!  Ok, I'll try.  I've already been losing sleep over it and it is still 16 days away.  Last year's event was fun but this year we've added so many new things that I cannot wait to see it all come into place.  Last year we had 62 vendors, this year we have over 80.  Last year we had one (very talented) guy put on an acoustic performance.  This year we have three bands!
Last year we had two rooms packed full of vendors of handmade art & crafts, this year we've added a full 50 foot tent and a tiki hut into the mix.
Awesome thing is, we were able to add all this extra stuff and still keep the admission price the same as last year.  Only 5 bucks and the parking is free.
We are located in the same place as last year, the Old Davie School museum located not far west of the Turnpike and East of University on Griffin Road.  Get there early because the first 100 people to pay their admission get a free hand-screen printed re-usable tote bag.
See you Saturday April 9th at noon!

We've already raised $1500 in fabulous raffle prizes and can't wait to show them to you on the big day!

Diaper Duty

I love our sponsors, because they represent what the Odd Duck Bazaar is all about: creating community, supporting the little guy, and being green in the process. Diaper Duty is owned and operated by the fabulous Veezie, who is basically the epitome of the DIY spirit. Her dedication to the handmade movement and green living is topped only by her dedication to her kids and yours.

Another great thing about Diaper Duty is that you can be green on a budget without all that diaper washing. Cloth diaper service from Diaper Duty actually costs less than disposable diapers. Check out the pricing link on Save the Earth, save your baby from diaper rash and plastic diapers, save some money, and save Veezie from workin’ for the man.
