Students can start shopping early for Christmas gifts because the Merchant’s Bazaar will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov 14-18.

The bazaar is sponsored by the Student Senate and comes to City College once every semester.

Merchants will be selling items such as framed posters and costume jewelry.

Jewelry with fused glass and handmade beads made by Nancy Marschak, wife of Fred Marschak, professor of earth and planetary science at City College, will also be available.

“It is their only event fundraiser,” said Ann Fryslie, director of student life.

The Bazaar has been happening since the 1960s and was originally named the Arts and Crafts Fair, Fryslie added.
