Let's Be Fair this Holiday Season 

If you’re on the hunt for a bargain -- and who isn’t these days? -- you’d best get to the Fair Trade Market to do your Christmas/Chanukah/Yule shopping. Featuring handmade goods from more than 50 countries, the Fair Trade Market offers items you’re not likely to find anywhere else. Made by native workers (who receive a fair wage for their goods) using reused and recycled materials, items such as toys, musical instruments, jewelry and home décor objects display an ingenuity and uniqueness you don’t find in your local big box. Ten percent of the purchase price is donated by vendors back to the Fair Trade Market to help enhance the quality of life in various developing nations, so while you’re crossing names off your shopping list left and right, you’re helping dozens of people you’ll never meet achieve a better life. The Fair Trade Market is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday through Sunday (November 21 to 29) at Manchester United Methodist Church (129 Woods Mill Road, Manchester; 636-394-7506 or Admission is free, and most items average about $20.
Nov. 21-22; Nov. 27-29, 2009
