The Crime Stoppers’ No Host Bazaar saw hundreds of people flock to the Community Centre Sunday to find that perfect something for Christmas. The mostly local vendors offered up all kinds of things for the shoppers’ pleasure from hand-made jewellery, soaps and art work to baked goods, clothing, toys and other goods and services.
Here’s a selection of photos from the day’s event:
