JAMES CITY COUNTY – The Williamsburg Bazaar Christmas and Gift Store, a seasonal pop-up store, has opened up for a second year at Williamsburg Premium Outlets on Richmond Road.
The Christmas Bazaar features Christmas figurines, wreaths, nutcrackers, and other Christmas décor as well as gifts including jewelry, crafts, shirts, and more. Items are created and promoted by roughly 65 local artisans as well as vendors from across the state. Proceeds from the sale of scarves will go to Heritage Humane Society.


The Christmas pop-up store, which first opened on October 17, will remain open until the end of January 2022.

Williamsburg Bazaar vendors rent spaces on a monthly basis. Roughly 50 vendors from Williamsburg Bazaar also have a space in the Christmas Bazaar pop up. There is also a sister store called the Norge Bazaar.


“We have a low turnover for spaces in the three locations, because we keep the rates low in order to help the vendors succeed,” said Janey Sawyer, owner and manager of the three shops. “We get great satisfaction of knowing we are helping the merchants sell their items and giving back to the community.”


Sawyer and her husband first started the Christmas pop-up store in 2019, but did not have a pop-up in 2020 due to the pandemic. Williamsburg Premium Outlets approached Williamsburg Bazaar about having a Christmas pop-up shop this season.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
