If you're the type of person who likes to get their Christmas shopping done early, then you may want to head over to the Clackamas County Event Center in Canby. Conversely, if that's not a habit of yours but you'd like to not be the last-minute type of person, maybe head over there too: the annual Christmas Country Bazaar is happening November 5-10 2018, and it's the perfect opportunity to find perfect presents for everyone on your list.
The Bazaar has been happening for 45 years, so you know this thing is for real. They have the creations from 150 vendors in about 10,000 square feet; that's almost a quarter acre of amazing gifts. There's everything from art and decor, jewelry, lighting and even gourmet foods.
There really is a diverse array of gift items. Last year, a new vendor created some pretty unique items from reclaimed wood, pipe and other industrial items, perfect for that industrial chic look many people are adopting. I can't wait to see what this year will bring. And not everything is Christmas either, there is a section of fall decor as well that helps reclaim Thanksgiving, as it's somewhat become the lost holiday after Halloween seems to turn right into Christmas.
The bazaar runs Monday - Saturday, November 5-10 at the main pavilion at the Clackamas County Event Center. Bring the family and plenty of trunk space, you'll get a lot of that Christmas shopping out of the way. Now you'll just need to figure out where to hide all the presents.
