Connect with contemporary local artists, crafters and entrepreneurs at the Annual Zawadisha Holiday Bazaar Dec 5, 2015 from 10am-3pm at Blue Angle Cafe in South Lake Tahoe.If you didn’t make it last year, this is a must-stop-and-shop event.
Entrance is free and all ages are welcome. At the bazaar you’ll be able to choose from modern African jewelry and housewares from Zawadisha; soaps, sponges and skincare from Tahoe Mountain Soap Co.; hand-crafted jewelry using Swarovski Crystals, pearls, genuine leather, stones and shells from BellaDrops; ceramics by Francis Rider; velvet pumpkins and acorns from Wildwood DIY Boutique; nourishing wellness and beauty products from LiveStock; mixed media jewelry and gifts from Squirrelsnest Boutique; eclectic items from Rear View Miracles; locally published books from Bona Fide Books; tea and health-centered ceramics from Wellness Arts by Erin Crow; bullet crystal necklaces and 14k filled delicate geometric pieces by Cat Makes Things; handmade glass bead, leather and sterling silver jewelry by Range of Light Designs; and driftwood art-chimes from Tahoe Schnorkelwood.
Zawadisha arms women with access to capital and the life-saving tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty. Our model is building a stronger world, one in which women are self-sufficient, successful and stand on their own two feet.
Zawadisha means “to give a gift” and we believe the greatest gift we can give women is a hand up in fighting poverty. The gift they give us in return is that we know we truly have changed the life of another human being. And that exchange is powerful.
