For Judy Alexander and her husband Barry,   a vacant warehouse nestled by their local auto shop became an opportunity to fuel their creativity and wild imagination. Their curio emporium, dubbed Bazaar on Apricot & Lime, blossomed in the spring like a strange and beautiful flower, as word of mouth spread like wildfire, specifically highlighting Judy’s welcoming warmth right at the door. Stepping through that whimsical portal, find yourself entranced by the vivid hues and embellishments in all directions, perusing everything from healing crystal art and leather jewelry to humorous bookmarks, baked goods and tarot card readings—all while talented local musicians perform around you. A home to more than 20 local artists and entrepreneurs, offerings include radiant mosaics and ornaments, quirky clocks and statues, and even glamorous get-ups for your pup, each revealing a seemingly endless array of creativity. “We truly have some of the most incredible creators, and my favorite part about the whole market is the community feeling,” Judy says. “I’m sure all of the artists and vendors feel the same way. It makes it all very special to me.” Passing through the circus of endless shopping and live music, customers become members of the neighborhood too, encouraged to participate in monthly raffles for a chance to receive a basket of goodies from local vendors, and bring their kids to play with Music Compound at “Crafty Musicians” on Saturdays. “I would love to have something like a fairy festival, or a unicorn or mermaid-themed one,” Judy says, already making plans for the future. “It’s all about fun for me everyday, and making sure my vendors are successful, and that they prosper.”
