Spring Bazaar hosts 50-plus vendors

HILL AIR FORCE BASE — On April 29, the Hill Officers’ Spouses’ Club will host its annual Spring Bazaar in the Club Hill Ballroom from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This year’s bazaar will boast 50-plus vendors with a large variety of crafts, goodies, products, services and more available for purchase. Shoppers indulge in treats, search for Mother’s Day gifts, learn about services and products, and splurge on gifts for themselves, family and friends. 

Vendors will include Pampered Chef, Usborne Books, Tupperware, DoTerra and Scentsy. There will also be all kinds of jewelry and handmade crafts and art; skin care including NuCerity and Mary Kay and handmade soaps; candy; baby blankets; car seat covers and crocheted hats.

“I’ve been to three OSC Bazaars and loved going,” said Emily Lee, whose husband works on base as a Logistics Officer. “I enjoy seeing the creative homemade items and my kiddos love the yummy goodies. It’s a great place to find different things that aren’t found anywhere else.”

HOSC Adviser Landa Lawrence attended her first bazaar in the fall: “I attended for the first time last fall and enjoyed it. I go to bazaars looking for gifts and crafts — unique things that I can’t find anywhere else. I’m really liking the homemade soaps.”

The HOSC hosts bazaars twice a year to raise funds for the HOSC Welfare Fund. This fund provides charitable gifts to military and local groups in need of support.

Last year, funds were donated to The Widow’s Fellowship Fund, an organization that solely benefits Air Force widowed spouses with such needs as rent, daily living costs, medical expenses, transportation and more. Other programs benefiting include Hill Field Elementary PTA, The Family Connection Center, The USAF Charity Ball, Cub Scouts Pack 55, SLC Fisher House, and Hill AFB Girl Scouts Troops — just to name a few!

HOSC Bazaar chairwoman Jaime Hilliard has taken on this year’s bazaars with organization, enthusiasm, and grace: “I enjoy hosting the bazaar because it’s a great way for me to volunteer my time to help raise money to support my Air Force community.” 

This event has free admission and anyone with base access is welcome to attend. If you have questions about this bazaar, email Hilliard at bazaarsdirector@gmail.com.
