The much-loved, “only-in-Wilson,Wyoming” annual Wilson Christmas Bazaar takes place at the warm and Tibetan blessed home of Brot and Didi Coburn on Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, December 8th, 10am – 4pm each day. Address: 1520 Fish Creek Road, Wilson, WY! Look for the prayer flags…oh, wait, there are prayer flags everywhere around here, so look for the address. And lots of cars. And the scent of hot cider. Didi works the floor, and Brot mans the snack counter and coffee bar. Sometimes Brot gets pulled away to work the floor as well, and conviviality never lets up.
Didi Coburn’s special Mountain Culture Rugs feature iconic Teton images woven into whimsical patterns; a bright and meaningful match for any mountain home.
Imported from India are cashmere and wool throws, shawls, scarves, pillows, leather goods, Ganesh pendants and hand painted miniature works set in silver. Limited edition ikat print, hand woven silk pillows from Kashgar will be on hand….as well as Martha MacEachern’s jewelry, “Sweet Peony Designs.”
Everyone is welcome! Bring a friend. For information call Didi at 307.733.4124 or email [email protected]
