Crowds gather for Tinsel & Tidings 2012

The 25th annual Tinsel & Tidings on Saturday brought crowds of people from all over to shop at the market-style, arts & crafts bazaar to benefit YWCA Paris and Lamar County.

With over 120 local and regional vendors, there was something there for everyone at the bazaar.  The holiday-themed event featured Santa Claus for photos with children.  The Love Civic Center was packed inside and outside with vendors offering home and holiday décor, candles, jewelry, art, books, clothes, candy, food, and many other things attracting shoppers all day.
