Crowds Flock To Rosecrans Holiday Bazaar

Shopping is one of the best parts about the holiday season, and plenty of people crossed some items off of their Christmas lists on Saturday.

Bishop Rosecrans High School kicked off its annual holiday bazaar.  More than 100 vendors set up shop around the school to sell a variety of homemade goods.  Brooklynne Workman said her jewelry addiction has transformed into a successful side business.

"I teach for Columbus City Schools, so it’s a nice relief from working and being on my feet all day," said Workman.  "It’s just easy to sit down, relax and let my mind go wild.  I guess teachers are a little creative."

Workman said she and her sister make the trip from Columbus because it’s the best craft fair in the area.  Donna Jardine suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome, but she doesn’t let her condition get in the way of her crocheting projects.  She sells thousands of nylon net scrubbies every year.

"They’re very nice, they last a good while and they don’t scratch anything," said Jardine.  "You can use them for vegetable brushes and they won’t hurt your coated pans.  You can use them on the glass top stoves, to clean your bathroom fixtures or clean bugs off your car.  You can throw them in the dishwasher or in the washing machine."

All proceeds from the bazaar benefit Bishop Rosecrans High School.
