FAIR TRADE HOLIDAY WORLD MARKET POP UP STORE AT ST. ELIZABETH SETON CHURCH
Gifts That Give Twice!
Saturday, November 23 from 9 AM to 6 PM
Sunday, November 24 from 8 AM to 1 PM
Light a candle of hope this Christmas with the Social Action Ministry of St. Elizabeth Seton Parish as they transform their church hall into a Ten Thousand Villages Fair Trade Craft Fair store on Saturday, November 23, from 9 AM to 6 PM, and Sunday, November 24, from 8 AM to 1 pm.
Just in time for the holidays, you will find hundreds of treasures including scarves, bags, toys, home accents, jewelry, candles, wall décor, baskets, ornaments, table top, spa and skincare, teas, coffees, chocolates, music, musical instruments, and more – all created by artisans from developing countries around the world and marketed by Ten Thousand Villages, one of the oldest Fair Trade non-profit organizations.
Fair trade proves that greater justice in world trade is possible. For this to happen, fair wages must be paid and safe working conditions provided. Your purchase can create new possibilities for those living in need by alleviating poverty through trade rather than aid. The middle man does not consume the profits.
Stop by to browse and enjoy free samples, bakery and refreshments. St. Elizabeth Seton Church is located at 9300 W. 167th St. in Orland Hills, IL. For more information on Ten Thousand Villages please visit www.tenthousandvillages.com.
