      Fair Trade and Handmade Bazaar

      Are you ready for a guilt-free Christmas? This year, put your money where your heart is. The annual Fair Trade & Handmade Bazaar will take place at the Hellenic Center, 54 Park Avenue, Poughkeepsie, on Saturday, December 7, from 11 to 5, and Sunday, December 8, from 11 to 3. Sponsored by the Dutchess County Interfaith Council (www.dutchesscountyinterfaith.org), this year’s Fair Trade & Handmade Bazaar will be better than ever.
      Like many faith communities, DCIC’s members believe in the connection between shopping choices in the United States, and poverty and environmental damage throughout the world. In response, the Fair Trade and Handmade Bazaar offers Dutchess County shoppers a wide array of high-quality, unique, and multicultural fair trade items just in time for the holiday gift giving season. These gifts are reasonably-priced and unique options that allow the buyer to feel a sense of alignment with the principles of the holidays. Shoppers can browse through fair trade coffee and chocolate, fine jewelry, woven baskets, pottery, and more. There are imports from Uganda, Thailand, the Amazon rain forest, and Haiti. Homemade treats made with ethically-sourced ingredients will be available for enjoyment at the Bazaar. Local artisans and artists, such as artist Larry Decker and pottery maker Lynne James, will be present, as well as local nonprofits such as the Poughkeepsie Farm Project and the Hudson Valley Folk Guild. For more information, please contact Pat Lamanna at (845) 309-3853 or patla42@gmail.com.
