The Charlottesville Waldorf School Holiday Bazaar is an annual event treasured by our school community and the many vendors, performers, and visitors who take part each year.
This year, acknowledging the challenges so many of our local businesses have faced over the past several months, we are organizing an online shopping event that will take place in two ways:
Our Charlottesville Waldorf School Holiday Bazaar School Store is being stocked with wonderful items from our classes and community, favorite Waldorf goods, and consignment items from local artisans and businesses. While it will officially launch at Thanksgiving, the store is already open with some very special items and you are welcome to visit!
We are also welcoming businesses in the community to take part in our Holiday Bazaar Shopping Directory, where you will find links to many of the regular Holiday Bazaar vendors! Use the special shopping code each has provided and the vendor will donate a percentage back to CWS — support the Charlottesville Waldorf School as well as a small business in our community with your holiday shopping!
Holiday Bazaar Shopping Directory
We are so proud to have the support of these wonderful businesses and encourage you to explore their websites and support them with your holiday shopping dollars this year especially! Please remember to include each business’s shopping code as directed so they will know we sent you and CWS will receive a percentage of your purchase total!
