Holiday bazaars and craft fairs abound this weekend in the Berkshires. Since most of them take place on Saturday I like to plan my visits like others map out neighborhood tag sales.

St. Stan's School in Adams is hosting its Christmas Bazaar Saturday from 9-4 in Kolbe Hall at the church on Hoosac St., with raffles, Chinese auctions, country crafts, baked goods, a Big Money raffle, their famous Polish Platter and much more. All to support the operation of St. Stanislaus Kostka School.
