Okinawa products score well at Spring Bazaar

Date Posted: 2007-04-26

A new entrant joined dozens of vendors last weekend for Camp Foster’s Spring Bazaar, offering local Okinawa-made products ranging from clothes made with hand woven cloth to handicrafts and cookies.

It was Okinawa Prefecture’s first face-to-face approach to the American community, bringing its Industrial Product Public Corporation to the three-day bazaar. The quasi-governmental group displayed—and sold—more than 100 different products during the event.

Shoppers and spectators poured into the Foster Field House to take advantage of literally hundreds of good deals, including a free car give away. In addition to the Okinawa Prefecture group, more than 50 vendors were selling furniture, carpets and rugs, Japanese gifts, kimonos and obis, jewelry, ceramics and artwork, and educational products. Seven military spouses were among those selling goods.

The Spring Bazaar was sponsored by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service and its concessionaires, together with its Exchange new car sales agents. A 2007 Ford Focus Se was given away to a lucky bazaar visitor.

Aside from the myriad of products available for sale, both to eat and drink at the field house or to take home, shoppers were treated to a variety of entertainment from everyone from pantomimes, hip hop street dancers, jugglers and karate specialists, to Chinese dragon dancers and Okinawa Eisa Drum Corps.

The big attraction, though, was the exhibition booth filled with Okinawa products.
