Ring­ing the bell for St Hilda’s an­nual Bazaar

Western Suburbs Weekly - - From The Archives -

WITH a new lo­ca­tion and raft of new stalls, the St Hilda’s Old Schol­ars As­so­ci­a­tion’s an­nual Bazaar is re­vamped and ready to go.

In a nod to years gone past, the Bazaar has moved back to its tra­di­tional lo­ca­tion at the se­nior school cam­pus on Bay View Ter­race, Mos­man Park.

Old Schol­ars As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Anu van Hat­tem said while the bazaar would keep its tra­di­tions alive, there were some new ideas.

“It’s a mix of new and old, so it will rekin­dle a lot of mem­o­ries for our Old Schol­ars but it’s also lovely to see what’s new and some new faces,” she said.

The new lo­ca­tion will bring an ar­ray of new fea­tures, such as bell­ring­ing from the chapel to mark the event’s open­ing, gi­ant party games to en­ter­tain the kids and a new juice bar for the health-con­scious.

The bazaar brings to­gether a range of stall­hold­ers, from or­ganic honey and oil to vin­tage cloth­ing and ex­quis­ite fash­ion pieces.

Mrs van Hat­tem said the range of or­ganic prod­ucts on of­fer would ap­peal to food­ies.

“It’s not the same when you buy it from a shop; you need to go to a bazaar or a mar­ket,” she said.

Old Scholar and stall­holder Sarah Tem­ple­man said she was ex­cited to come back to the school and be part of the com­mu­nity event.

Mrs Tem­ple­man runs the Sarah Tem­ple­man Gallery in Cottes­loe, a bou­tique store with hand­picked jew­ellery, fash­ion ac­ces­sories and cloth­ing.

She said the bazaar was a good op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to treat their moth­ers, given it was the day be­fore Mother’s Day.

“A lot of mums don’t have the time to shop for them­selves and a lot of mums don’t ex­pect to be spoilt,” she said.

“It’s nice to have some fun ac­ces­sories avail­able that can sur­prise her.”

Mrs Tem­ple­man has im­ported jew­ellery ex­clu­sive to the bazaar, in­clud­ing cos­tume jew­ellery, key chains and bag charms.

En­try to the Bazaar is gold coin do­na­tion and will be at the St Hilda’s Bay View Ter­race cam­pus on Satur­day, May 13, 10am-3pm.
