Local artisans found a new outlet when a Southeast church announced a 'Woodstock Bazaar'

DAVID F. ASHTON - Foster-Powell neighbor Laurel Hoyt showed her work at the Woodstock Bazaar: It was inspired by Crater Lake, and painted on reclaimed wood. The parking lot of the Tremont Evangelical Church, on S.E. Woodstock Boulevard at 72nd Avenue, was filled with tents on Saturday, July 20 as the "Woodstock Bazaar" got underway.

A total of 29 vendors came to the fair, including those offering ready-to-eat foods and craft and art sellers, said organizer Bonnie Brantley.

"The table rental raises funds for our church's ministries and outreach, and provides an outlet for 'locals' to sell their goods directly to the public," observed Brantley.

One artist, Laurel Hoyt, told THE BEE that she came from "just a couple of blocks away" from the fair to display her woven goods, and artwork painted on reclaimed wood. "I'm so glad people are finding my artwork attractive, and taking some of it home," she said.

Look for the bazaar at the same location in late July next year.
