Redwood City will soon be home to a new theater group - Dragon Productions.
The nonprofit organization, previously based in Palo Alto, is in the process of renovating its new space at 2120 Broadway - but, the community can get a sneak peek as the group opens its doors this weekend to host its "Back Street Bazaar/Fashion and Jewelry Trunk Show," to help raise money for their relocation costs.
Dragon Productions is trying to raise $400,000 to cover the costs of relocating from Palo Alto and renovating its new space in Redwood City.
This weekend's bazaar will feature exotic items from Blue Stone Imports, which they hope many will be tempted to purchase for themselves or as holiday gifts.
"Featuring a hand-selected collection from Turkey, the Silk Road, and a touch of glass from Venice. Enjoy browsing gifts which reflect the best designs and high-quality workmanship. Select from unique and beautiful items for very affordable prices - scarves, capes, jewelry, purses and bags, bedspreads and pillow covers. Small handmade wool rugs, and colorful lasting beauties from the geologic wonderland of Cappadocia, are also well priced. Also take a look at the striking 'Wave' glass pendants, handmade on the famous glass island of Murano, near Venice."
The bazaar will take place this Friday, Dec. 7 from 5-9 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 8 from noon to 4:30 p.m.
Eighteen percent of gross sales will go to Dragon's relocation campaign.
City of Redwood City spokesman Malcolm Smith said this week, "We are very excited about this fantastic addition to our downtown Theater District."
