Travel to the far corners of the world without ever leaving Rhein-Main — by visiting Hangar 425 May 14 to 16.
Polish pottery, wine, antique furniture, olive wood and Turkish carpets are just a few examples of the types of products people will find on sale at the Community Spouses Club Bazaar.
The bazaar is by far the CSC’s biggest fund raiser and has always been one of the biggest events at Rhein-Main.
“There will be vendors from the Netherlands, Israel, England, Italy and France, among many others,” said Mindi Spencer, bazaar chairperson.
About 75 vendors will be selling their wares this year. Along with the vendors a wide variety of food booths will be present, run by different base organizations.
While the bazaar itself is an opportunity for Rhein-Main members to purchase goods from all over the globe, it serves a greater purpose — collecting money that will go right back into the local community.
“Last year’s bazaar raised well over $50,000, all going back into the community through organizations, such as the family support center, giving out student scholarships and many other programs that help troops and the community as a whole.
“We would love to see a huge turnout. This is the last bazaar we will have on Rhein-Main and we would like to end the tradition on a very successful note,” said Mrs. Spencer.
The vendors accept American dollars or Euros, and personal checks. Credit cards will be accepted depending on the vendor. Although personal checks are accepted, there will be no check cashing service by the CSC.
Non-ID cardholders signed on base as guests are welcome to attend.
