From soap shaped like sushi and bacon to whimsically odd sculptures, Boston Bazaar Bizarre is a treasure trove of handmade awesome. Snap up a sure-to-be-coveted Yankee Swap item or a frivolous adornment to cheer yourself now that the dark days of winter are upon us.

Meanwhile in Cambridge, indie market The Design Hive is celebrating its one year anniversary and its final event of the season, Handmade Holidaze.

When and where: Boston Bazaar Bizarre is Sunday, December 6, 12-7pm. $1. BCA Cyclorama. 539 Tremont St.,  Boston.
The Design Hive is Sunday, December 6, 10 am-5 pm. Maria Baldwin School. 28 Sacramento St., Cambridge

If it’s too snowy to make it to the fairs, fear not. This season offers several more opportunities to shop while supporting independent artists and crafters.
