BCN Holiday Bazaar

We went to the Holiday Bazaar at the Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene last weekend and got to enjoy all the crafts and goodies.

A few of our favorite vendors were:

  • Honor Flight RVC – Incredible wooden pieces crafted to benefit the Honor Flight RV Convoy program that offers an alternate method of traveling to Washington, D.C. for WWII, Korean War and Vietnam veterans who choose not to fly.
  • KenKare Jewelry & Crafts – beautiful and unique handcrafted earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and more made by a mother-daughter team.
  • Singapore Seahorse – beautiful jewelry made using ancient coins from around the world.
  • Hook & Needle Creations – so many bags and totes of all sizes and with prints to fit everyone’s taste – fandoms, florals, geometric, paisley, etc..
  • Paper Dreams by Terry – so many amazing paper goods such as gift card envelopes, gift boxes, candy bar sleeves, and cute magnets made out of Scrabble tiles!

Jeff P. Schmitt, 1954-2018

For many years, Jeff Schmitt has been a local celebrity. Although we never met him in person, we did briefly meet his son Jay, who worked at Sam Goody at the mall in 2003. Through meeting Jay and living in the Dayton area, it felt as if we knew Jeff Schmitt in a small way.

Recently, Jeff Schmitt passed away (his obituary). While at lunch, he suffered a heart attack that eventually led to his passing. Jeff had suffered some health issues in recent years, including needing a new kidney, which he received from his son Jay.
