It’s the most wonderful time of the year to visit The Bazaar on Apricot & Lime! On Friday, December 9, their doors will be open for after-hours shopping, from 5-8 p.m. for the first-ever Hound Happy Hour.
Bring your four-legged friend for a free puppy cup as you stroll through the market, grab a bite to eat and enjoy a craft beer or glass of wine while listening to live music from Jsanti, a New York City musical artist and songwriter who has a solo/ acoustic set will perform original and cover material.
Each month, The Bazaar opens the courtyard to animal rescues. At the December event, Satchels Last Resort and Tender Heart Charities will make dogs available for adoption. According to Page Knoebel, President of Satchel’s Last Resort, “The exposure is great. And just as important, it gives the dogs (and cats) time away from shelter enforcement. They get to learn more about the animals, which helps to match them. easier to the perfect home.”
Lisa Martin-Manns, founder of Tender Heart Charities, said they’ve had great success with actual adoptions from being on The Bazaar. In fact, three of the adoptions are from members of the The Bazaar family!
The guest vendors for Hound Happy Hour are: Kilted Canines (dog training), Vice & Virtue (custom beds and bandanas), Wiggle Your Tail Pet Care, Doody Calls, and Lit Dog Treats. There are over 40 local creators and curators in The Bazaar. Hamlet’s Eatery is open for dinner. Creative Liberties across the street from The Bazaar is also open. It’s a good time to do your Christmas shopping.
“It has always been important for The Bazaar to bring the community together,” said Kim Livengood, co-owner of Bazaar. “It has been our mission since we started. From providing a space for small businesses to dogs looking for their forever houses.”
