The word bazaar comes from the Persian word vazar. It means a market place. Market places have existed since ancient times and are associated with the dawn of civilization. When people began producing more food or other products than they could eat or use themselves, they would trade it for goods that they were lacking. The best place for trade was where roads would cross. When one person was successful in trading at a particular location, others would also come there to trade. Eventually people would set up home near the centers of trade, thus beginning towns and cities.
You can experience the excitement of the bazaar by visiting the Beadshaper table at the Los Angeles Bead Society Bead Bazaar this coming Sunday, October 26, 2014. See L.A. Bead Bazaar for details.
