Fair Trade Sale to benefit mission’s efforts

SARANAC LAKE — First Presbyterian Church, 57 Church St. will become an international bazaar of exotic sights and sounds at its eighth-annual “Give the Spirit” Fair Trade Sale from 4 to 7 p.m. today and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

The community is invited 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,” Debbie Kreider, mission chairperson, said in a news release. “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 missions.

For more information, call the church at 891-3401.
