Saranac Lake, NY – First Presbyterian Church will become an international bazaar of exotic sights and sounds at its 8th Annual “Give the Spirit” Fair Trade Sale from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on November 2 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on November 3. Church members invite the Tri-Lakes community to shop for fairly traded gifts and holiday items. “For the eighth year in a row, we’ll transform our Great Hall into a world market, selling fair trade handicrafts from Colores del Pueblo, Mira Ethnicity, and SERRV, International,” said Mission Chairperson Debbie Kreider. “These are nonprofit, fair trade-certified organizations that work directly with artisans from around the world to find markets for their products in North America.” The marketplace will feature jewelry, hand-woven bags and scarves, ornaments, toys, and home accessories. The sale will also feature fairly traded coffees, teas, and chocolates from Equal Exchange and a Heifer Project living gift market. Local artists will provide music to shop by. All proceeds from the sale benefit local and world mission.
First Presbyterian Church is located at 57 Church Street in downtown Saranac Lake. The event is free to the public. For more information, contact the church office at (518) 891-3401.
