Fair Trade Holiday Bazaar Taking Place this Weekend

The-Welcome-Mat-7Come and get some amazing gifts from around the world at The Valparaiso International Center's Holiday Bazaar/Welcome Mat holiday sale. When you buy a fair trade craft you provide skilled, underprivileged artisans with a fair income, sustainable employment, a dignified living and development opportunities for their communities.

"Fair trade” prevents abuse or manipulation of the artisan, ensures that the artisan that crafted the good is paid fair and livable wages, and the items are socially and environmentally sustainable. This boosts the artisan’s local economy and promotes sustainable living. Even the smallest purchase can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors abroad.

The VIC is proud to support artisans in developing economies and promote the mission of the Valparaiso International Center. Come join us on Friday 11/29 from 12 to 8PM

 and 

Saturday 11/30 from 10 to 5PM at the Valparaiso International Center
, 309 East Lincolnway, Valparaiso, IN 46383.
