St James and St Mary’s Christmas Bazaar 1998 -Who Do You Know?


For a few years I used to convene the St. James Bazaar in Carleton Place. Memories like that you will never lose. Today, I came across these pictures out of the Carleton Place Canadian files from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. I swear Flora has not aged at all. She looks even more fabulous!
