The Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center held its annual holiday bazaar on Friday and Saturday, November 2-3, 2018.

This year, the lights stayed on. Famously one year there was a power outage right in the middle of the bazaar. They kept going with flashlights and what light there was from the windows, but it was not a high-grossing year.

Checking out the items in the Silent Auction


The biggest secret in town are the baskets and other items in the silent auction. They are beautiful and full of wonderful things and I suspect they don't get the bids they deserve. But if you want a real bargain, mark your calendar for next year's event.

The Senior Center is housed in a stand-alone building at the very south end of the Shoreline Center, facing the south parking lot and NE 185th.

Some of the vendors are Senior Center members but many are not. Local craftspeople and artists sell their wares at the holiday bazaar.

You never know who's going to be at a holiday bazaar or what treasures you will find!

Do craft persons have to give a portion of their income from the bazaar to the Senior Center, & if so, what percent?

What percent of earnings go to the senior center?

The vendors pay a two day booth fee and keep all their earnings.
