Holiday shopping already underway

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WASH.--Several holiday bazaars were happening all over Yakima County Saturday, but perhaps the biggest one took place in Glenwood Square.

Over 50 local vendors set up booths selling their own unique products. Vendors said sales will spike during these next few months, and holiday bazaars are one of the best ways to get their merchandise out on the market.

"We get a lot of people that come through that have purchased a product before, and you get people coming through looking for that unique gift idea," said Carleen Drake, a local artisan. "These are the kind of places they're going to find it."

There was also lots of food and entertainment at Saturday's event, including a special performance by the Yakima Flute Troupe.
