No neon. No flowers. No fancy art. No glossy inserts in the Sunday papers. No marble tile on the floor. Just one sign on the highway pointing the way, and on the roof, six not- very-big letters in shimmering gold, spread across the top of the building facing Baltimore Pike in Upper Darby. "Bazaar," it says. The Bazaar of All Nations, officially, but the emphasis, properly, is on the first word. Bazaar. Now looking not quite new, a little run-down, not at all slick, and smelling, well, pleasant in a sort of aged way, the Bazaar is thought to be Delaware County's first enclosed shopping mall, 30 years old this year.

The remnants of what once was the Bazaar of All Nations, the marketing innovation that introduced interior stall shopping to Greater Philadelphia, goes up for auction on Saturday. The Clifton Heights landmark closed in 1993, but its owners, the Clyman Family, had kept a lot of its old Bazaar stock in storage. An expired lease that's forcing the Bazaar out of its building is in turn forcing the sale of thousands of items ranging from antiques and air-conditioners to silk flowers and security cameras, Scott Clyman said.

It was Tim Kelly's first day as a floor walker. He was not dressed for it: red windbreaker, brown felt hat, baggy pants . . . . Why, he wasn't even wearing his best walking shoes. The $75 jobs. But nobody noticed. Kelly, smiling from ear to ear, just fell in line behind the rest of the walkers for his initiation trek into AW RIGHT - Aisle Walkers Remain In Good Health Together. For the past month or so, AW RIGHTERS have been hoofing it up one aisle and down the other at the Bazaar, an indoor, 92-store shopping center at Baltimore Pike and Bishop Avenue in Clifton Heights, Delaware County.

IF YOU NEVER set foot in the Bazaar, it's tough to understand its place in Delaware County's collective memory, and why the question "Remember the Bazaar?" can still set off an hour-long discussion 17 years after its doors closed. The Bazaar of All Nations, as it was formally named, was a massive indoor shopping center on the border of Upper Darby and Clifton Heights, a blue-collar precursor to the modern mall. Built in 1960 on the grounds of an old mental hospital, the Bazaar was a semi-surreal maze of pegboard, wood paneling, chicken wire and miles of fluorescent lights.

It's not unusual to see the bargain hunters lined up deep early on a weekend morning, waiting for doors to open anywhere there's a sale in the Northeast. These days, though, they are as likely to be waiting outside a church as at a factory outlet, hoping to get a good deal at one of the numerous holiday bazaars at Northeast churches and synagogues. "This is my fourth bazaar today," said Marcus Wilson, who was at Resurrection Episcopal Church's bazaar at Rowland and Wellington Streets, Mayfair.

The Bazaar of All Nations property, dormant for nearly a year, will come to life in 1995, when construction of a Home Depot and Acme supermarket begins at the site. Township officials say the renovated property at Baltimore Pike and Delmar Drive will mean 525 jobs, about 261,000 square feet of shops, and about $138,000 a year in mercantile tax revenue for Upper Darby. Last week, the Township Council approved the zoning code amendment that paves the way for the $22 million, 27-acre project.

It's the traditional Election Day outing in Radnor Township's tiny village of Garrett Hill: Vote and eat cake. For 40 years - and maybe longer, but nobody knows for sure - women from the Radnor United Methodist Church on Conestoga Road have served hot meals, sold cakes and offered up white elephants and handmade items, to benefit the women's group each Election Day. Across the street, in what was then the brick Rosemont Elementary School, voters...

Pam Fox was wheeling a baby stroller with one hand, while balancing a large item atop the stroller's hood with the other. "I just got this huge, straw pocketbook," said Fox, who lives in Merion. "And several children's games. It's been great. " By all accounts, Saturday's Merion Friends Meeting Bazaar that marked the beginning of Main Line Week was a success. Crowds were managable, the price was right, and the weather was gorgeous. "The nice thing is," Fox said, "there are things for children too, but they're not too commercial.

It's not only in the Delacroix: The Late Work exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art that you can soak up the sights of Morocco. Just beyond the galleries, where many of the canvases capture the color of Delacroix's trip to North Africa, a Moroccan bazaar has sprung up. There, you can soak up the sights and take them home. A Design Pick of the Week? How about the whole bazaar? It's impossible to pick out just one item from the exotic handcrafts imported from Morocco in conjunction with the 3 1/2-month run of the exhibition, which opens to the public on Tuesday.

For many years, I read about the rich history of Persia and yearned to see the wonders left behind in Iran, but when I told my friends I wanted to visit Iran, they thought I was crazy. They didn't believe it was safe, or they thought Iranians would be hostile toward Americans. Nothing could be further from the truth: The people's friendly welcome was rivaled only by the beautiful remains of Persian culture. I started my 11-day tour of Iran in April in the ancient Persian city of Persepolis, where 3,000-year-old palaces and gateways built by Xerxes and Darius the Great still stand.

Bits of hand-painted porcelain - likely part of a 19th-century teapot - were pulled from clumps of earth as the archaeologists shifted through the excavation site. A copper knot that may have been part of an earring dropped by a visitor long ago was found, along with a piece of a figurine monkey and the base of a wine bottle. One hundred and thirty-nine years ago, the ground where the artifacts were unearthed was the location of a Japanese garden and bazaar, one of the attractions at Philadelphia's Centennial Exposition in Fairmount Park.

Shoppers across the Philadelphia region packed malls and big-box stores on Black Friday, battling for parking spots and discount goods. But in a second-floor space on the south side of Rittenhouse Square, commerce took on a quieter tone. The Tibetan Bazaar is the un-Black Friday, a place to shop for unique silverwork and textiles, to savor salty butter tea and inhale the steamy scent of traditional dumplings, known as momos, to trade the blare of canned holiday music for the hum of chanting monks.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A car bomb tore through a crowded bazaar outside an office for anti-Taliban tribal elders Saturday in northwestern Pakistan, killing at least 17 people, officials said. The blast in Darra Adam Khel was the latest to strike the troubled area near the Afghan border, showing that extremists still pose a threat to the stability of key U.S. ally Pakistan despite government offensives against the Taliban and its supporters. No group immediately claimed responsibility, but the Pakistani Taliban has staged similar attacks in the tribal region of Darra Adam Khel to punish elders for backing security forces in offensives against extremists.
