By Jenny Vickers Chyb
John Lennon and Paul McCartney once wrote “Can’t buy me love, no no no, no…” but we beg to differ. You can buy love - and lots of it - at the Asbury Park Valentine’s Bazaar happening Saturday, February 9th, 2019 from noon to 6 pm in the Grand Arcade of Convention Hall!
We’ve curated a special selection of vendors who handcraft goods made with love … every item is handmade, unique, independent, or vintage!
