ONTARIO - The chance to find a gift that won't be on Amazon or in a big box store is a key draw for shoppers going to holiday bazaars.

And uniqueness was definitely the hallmark of what was available during the Malheur County Fairgrounds Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, Dec. 4.

Shoppers get a second chance to browse this weekend. The bazaar is scheduled to run again from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 10, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Vendors are in the Commercial Building and in Girvin Hall. On Saturday, photos with Santa will be free.

Vendors are selling custom-made goods - from bird houses to toy cars to jewelry. They're selling jam and jellies, scarves, plants and plenty of holiday decor.
