New Exhibit: The Relief Society Bazaar
Special Collection’s newest small exhibit is ““Handicrafts & Heritage: LDS Relief Society Bazaars,” a look at the 20th century phenomenon of Relief Society fundraising fairs. Relief Society sisters from all around the world participated in bazaars, selling handmade crafts and foods to raise money for their Relief Society budgets. The exhibit features photos and crafts from bazaars held from Provo to French Polynesia, in conjunction with the larger exhibit on level one of the library, “Welcome to Our Charity Bazaars,” which tells the story of fundraising bazaars’ origin in Victorian England. The exhibit will be on display through the month of May.
