The Fort Hood Officers’ Spouses’ Club Holiday Bazaar is still accepting vendor applications for its 31st annual Holiday Bazaar on Nov. 10 and 11 at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center.

So far, more than 100 vendors have signed up to sell items including food, antique trunks, art, paintings, men’s and women’s jewelry, homemade crafts, holiday wreaths, tileworks and more.

“It is a wonderful event and lets people get an early start on Christmas shopping,” said Lori Brooks, chair of the holiday bazaar. “My favorite part is just getting everybody in the holiday spirit and knowing that all the proceeds that we make goes back into the community.”

Professional pictures with Santa are available from noon to 3 p.m. Nov. 10.

The bazaar is one of the organization’s biggest fundraisers, Brooks said. They support the community by donating the money to outreach programs and providing scholarships for high school seniors.

The two-day shopping extravaganza generally brings in about $30,000 and 2,500 visitors annually.

“It’s important to have the community come out and support (one another),” she said. “It’s great to see the children and students and how happy and appreciative they are.”

For more information or to apply to be a vendor, contact Lori Brooks at FH.Holiday.Bazaar@gmail.com or (254) 833-2656. Vendor applications are available at www.forthoodosc.org.
