CUMC is hosting its 2nd Annual Fair Trade Gift Boutique featuring items handcrafted by women in developing countries. The sale proceeds go diretly to the artisans, thereby increasing the women's ability to purchase needed improvements in health, housing and education, while decreasing their vulnerability to human trafficking, HIV/AIDS, and violence.
Everyone is invited to shop. You'll find items eclectic to exquisite, created from natural, recycled and sustainable materials. Featured are jewelry, scarves, handbags, sweaters, apparel, housewares, soaps, ornaments, home decor items and more.
This is a wonderful opportunity to treat yourself, your friends, your families, and to help women break out of poverty at the same time.
The event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10 from 9-3 and Sunday, Nov. 11 from 11-3 at Christ United Methodist Church Deerfield, 600 Deerfield Rd, Deerfield, IL. Parking is available in the lot at the corner of Deerfield Rd. and Rosemary Terrace.
