"Clothing is just another word for costume. So we're here to help people pick what kind of costume they want to wear for any particular day," said Reyen of Baldwinsville, Onondaga County, who runs Reyen Design Studios with his wife, Dorita.
Hosted by the Rochester Museum & Science Center, the annual event continues to expand. This year, more than 170 vendors from five states, including Massachusetts, New Jersey and Ohio, participated.
Nancy Gillette had never gone to the Holiday Bazaar until last year when her mother dragged her. On Sunday, Gillette passed down the motherly nudging and took her daughter, Colleen, for some early Christmas shopping. Both left pleased.
