In Pictures: The Crime Stoppers’ No-Host Bazaar

By David F. Rooney

The Crime Stoppers’ No-Host Bazaar has proven itself to be one of the liveliest Christmas season bazaars in the city.

Much of the credit for that goes to the dedicated members of the local Crime Stoppers’ group and, of course, to all of the local non-profit groups, artisans and others who come up with fantastic things to sell.

Here’s a small photographic tribute to this year’s event:
