Russian Bazaar

On Saturday I went to the Russian Bazaar. It’s hosted by the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (whew, that’s a mouthful! But nothing to a gal who went to Martin Luther King Jr. Academic Magnet High School for the Health Sciences and Engineering at Pearl).

It was fun! There were a lot of matryoshka dolls, which I loved. I collect matryoshka dolls. I even use these super-cute folder icons on my computer.

Matryoshka galore!

I have a grand total of two actual physical matryoshka dolls in my collection. But, once I become a woman of means, I plan on adding to it! I’d particularly like this one:

I love all the blues!

But this next one is great, too! They’re a different shape than usual, and it has nine dolls!

Can you spot the tiny one hiding behind that box? Adorable!

They had other matryoshka-themed items, like this awesome matryoshka tea cozy:

I also liked this wooden toy. To see a video of it in action, go here.

There was a band there playing Russian music:

Check out that huge guitar-like thing that man's playing!

My friend Michelle was most excited about the moon bounce:

Unfortunately, it was not adult-sized.

And the inside of the church was beautiful:

But the best part was, Mr. Incredible was there!
