Bazaar Bizarre and Bizarre Bazaar

That’s right, there are two different holiday events going on with these names, and the Stockroom will have a booth at both of them!

I had lunch with the founder of Bazaar Bizarre this afternoon, Greg Der Ananian. I bought three copies of his latest DIY crafty punky book with the shared name of the event he titled, Bazaar Bizarre. Greg is a very busy man these days! He just made an appearance on the Queer Edge with Jack E. Jett show on QTV, and is being flown all over the country to promote his book. He is book signing next week at Skylight Books, and will have a Baz Biz bake sale at Pull My Daisy this Saturday. There will be a big article about him in the next issue of my favorite rag, Bust Magazine. Greg is a delicious baker, so I highly recommend picking yourself up some goodies.

I went to the Baz Biz last year strictly as a buyer, and I thought it was incredible. The place was packed with people buying up all the DIY punky crafts. The selection and level of creativity in that hall was fantastic. I bought a lot of gifts for everyone. I think the Stockroom’s handmade leather items will be a great addition to the event.

And then there’s Bizarre Bazaar. They are holding the event in a new location this year- at the Historic Mayflower Ballroom. Last year they had hilarious relay races with roped up femmes racing each other. And they sold hot dogs and happy scenesters bought kinky gear. A good time was had by all.
