Once again, ringing in the holiday season with its 6th annual Atomic Holiday Bazaar, a festive celebration designed to support the creative in you for the holidays. Being the first original indie craft show exclusively showing vintage apparel, jewelry, house wares, clothing, antique assemblage, vinyl and other items.

 

More than a 130 vendors come together to sell their unique products and handmade wares. Adrien Lucas the event organizer, welcomed all to join in the festivities at this year’s Atomic Holiday Bazaar in Sarasota, Florida. This annual holiday tradition continues to be the place to buy affordable, amusing and elegant American handmade craft. Atomic is “not your granny’s craft show” and offers high end to low brow jewelry that you could imagine seen in a Teen Vogue spread.

 

“I am excited about introducing my version of an Atomic estate sale, based upon my eclectic kitschy tastes and years of experience working with vintage clothing and admiring beautiful used objects. Every year I see more and more applications based in vintage collections and a growing number of people interested in retro objects. I want this show to grow into a nationally recognized vintage venue for purveyors and collectors of anything and everything vintage.”

 

The first 100 guests were given totes from the fabulous Suncoast Quad Squad, a roller derby team in Sarasota who are hard hitting and fun loving.

 

Attendees purchased a variety of gifts from the bazaar including handmade jewelry and clothing from a list of inventive creators. Including Recycle My Bag, Art of Skulls, McLeod 9, Betsy Bell, La Caja, Somewhere Glassworks, The Chalk Board Tee, embs b. Jewelry, You Are a Robot, Colleen White Jewelry, Anti Sparkle Apparel, Like A Fox and more! Which turned out to be an excellent opportunity to show the importance of economic development for artisans in Southwest, Florida. “I enjoy giving my family socially conscious holiday gift options!”, quoted one guest.

 

This year was again a wonderful turn-out, as It brings to light a positive impact of such diverse businesses from all over our communities. But most importantly, it helps strengthen and expand efforts throughout the year. Don’t miss the next one… It’s ATOMIC!
