Welcome to the Bazaar’s Business Backroom
Everyone loves a secret.
The Saintnook Bazaar is an underground market open for only a few days a month, where buyers and businesses can meet over the same passion: transmitting our beautiful, Catholic Faith to our students and children through creative and attractive tools.

Founder of Saintnook
Hi friend! Thanks for joining me under these patterned awnings. Saintnook is run by a small team of volunteers, so we’re excited to invite you into a new, creative aspect.
There are a number of little shops prepping to shed shade along this avenue, and you’re one of them! Together, let’s turn this Bazaar into a bustling phenomenon that visitors are fascinated to look forward to.
Purpose of the Bazaar
This Bazaar is designed to do 2 things:
- To cross-pollinate fans among new businesses and generate new sales and interest for your sites/services.
- To increase interest and business for Saintnook, to be able to continue improving its unique vision of transforming the way we learn about the saints.
This Bazaar unites us in the same goal; creating a fun opportunity for parents, teachers and catechists alike to learn of new deals and discounts on some of the best Catholic products. You are invited to share the best discounts you can, preferably on one product, to do two things:
- provide a discount inaccessible anywhere else
- promote your store/site/service
None. No tax on your sales, or inclusion fees. (Perhaps if we get to be huge, then I’ll need to charge something small to compensate my time.) :)
Your ‘fee’ for entering is to pinky-swear to blitz your mailing lists with updates that your products are on sale in this bazaar. If we all share the hype, we all stand to gain.
By being a part of the Bazaar, you also have first chance at sponsoring Saintnook and/or its projects. Please visit our donation page to see some of the things we’re interested in doing. I have a couple of ideas below to keep this experience interesting!
Any questions at all, contact me at info.saintsnook (a) gmail.com
God bless you and yours,

Sample text to send to your friends
Hi friends, imagine this is a note I slipped into your pocket as we passed in the street. Why such secrecy? I’m inviting you to join an underground market open for only 3 days a month for Catholic goods.
It’s the Saintnook Bazaar, where buyers and businesses can meet over the same passion: transmitting our beautiful, Catholic Faith to our students and children through creative and attractive tools.
You won’t find any mention of the Bazaar on Saintnook. You have to join their free emailing list to get the link to the page and the password.
Saintnook is excited to be bringing you a growing collage of Catholic projects and products, all designed to help you teach and share our Catholic faith. These discounts and deals are available nowhere else.
I’m excited to be a part of this Bazaar, and I’m offering my [insert product title] at a discount of [amount]! If you ever wanted a copy for friends, family or yourself, now’s the time! Get my discount only at the Bazaar, opening in [amount] days!
I wonder if this works as a song? (cue Judy Garland…) “Meet me in the Saintnook Bazaar, meet me at the fair…”
When the Bazaar opens, come explore a variety of deals, discounts and freebies!
God bless you and yours!
