News of the Bazaar

Faithful readers of this blog can now take away their own bit of Rancho style when they stop in at the first-ever RANCHO REUBIDOUX GARDEN BAZAAR! The sale will take place Saturday and Sunday, October 1st and 2nd, and will feature an array of handmade garden ornaments and succulents from local vendors, as well as good stuff from my own collection … using the key above, here’s the rundown on who, and what, will be available:
Culled from my own collections, I’ll be offering rough’n’rusty goodness, including containers, artwork and even a couple of items created especially for the sale … See something you like that doesn’t have a price tag? Let’s talk! (Some exceptions apply; Paul, Frito and Inky stay.)
Down-the-way neighbor, and fellow succulent aficionado, Bonnie Reynolds (click here), has gathered kitschy vintage ceramic containers and turned them into whimsical mini-gardens… but that’s not all: she’s also creating stacked colored glass ‘totems’! (Bonus: Master gardener husband, Bruce, is building birdhouses.)
Recent local find, Vickie Perez, will be offering an assortment of her trademark rusted (and rustic) succulent container gardens … She’s been on the hunt for unusual containers ever since I asked her to participate in the sale, and if I know her, she’s come up with some clever — and amazing — goodies!

Lastly, but no less importantly, local succulent propagator/dealer, Mike Dignan, will be supplying a truckload of amazing specimens, picked just for the Rancho’s Bazaar. You can look forward to terrific juicy leaf examples to go with your new pots and containers … Need more? He’s at the downtown Riverside Farmer’s Market every Saturday, check him out!
As garden brujo-in-charge, I’m looking ahead to two days of spirited Rancho fun, shopping and visiting … I hope to see you and your friends! I’ll post reminders as the days draw closer but mark your calendars now … Here’re the particulars:
