The Bountiful Bizarre Bazaar

I just returned from a quick trip to Cincinnati where I stopped in at my favorite specialty store, the Bizarre Bazaar. Even the name is great, right? It is a fabulous, eclectic shop filled with all manner of home furnishings, gifts and just plain fun stuff.

The store is owned by the parents of a close friend of Adrienne’s (Sara) and we have been patrons for many years – not only because we know the owners, but because it is just the greatest, friendliest place. The inventory is huge – I cannot imagine how Maureen, Sara’s mom, knows where everything is and all the prices, but she just does.

Upon entering the store, your senses are aroused with the wonderful music playing, the aroma of spices and the visual elements that surround and embrace you. Every type of gift item is available, in quantity, style and price range. There are candles and cards and jewelry (I am wearing a new necklace I just purchased and I look fabulous – sorry you can’t see me), ornaments, baby gifts, wreaths, collectibles, home accessories, furniture, mirrors, paintings, flower arrangements, themed areas, etc., etc. I took some photos when I was there so you could experience it all too. When I had my design business in Cincinnati, the Bizarre Bazaar was one of my top places to search for accessories for clients. The store and merchandise have a unique “look” that certainly isn’t duplicated anywhere in Cincinnati. SO, if you ever get to the East Side of Cincinnati, stop in at the Bizarre Bazaar – it will surely charm you.


The Bizarre Bazaar is located at 7767 Five Mile Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45230. You can call the shop at 513-231-6861 and tell them you read this and can’t wait to get there!

Mrs. B!!!!!!! I had no illusions about how wonderful and talented you are.... In so many ways, but you are quite the little blogger. I just had so much fun reading everything! I especially like when you tell of schloppin dip on your shirt! What a perfect preface to a recipe. I wish I could see you soon! Lots of love!

Thanks Searce!! I am so glad you like the blog. I was disappointed I didn't get to see your mom when I was in Cincy. The shop looks gorgeous as always.
