This Christmas Craft Bazaar offers buyers a fair trade

This special event offers the creations of hundreds of artisans: unique quality crafts.

If you love to buy fair-trade items for Christmas gifts, the Fiesta World Craft Bazaar, on Saturday, Nov. 14 at the Eagles Hall in Duncan from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. will open a new world to you.

This special event offers the creations of hundreds of artisans: unique quality crafts from many non-profit and ethical, fair-trade business vendors.

“It’s just amazing, the groups that are coming,” said Duncan event spokesperson Sue Darlington.

“We have every continent covered. There really is something for every pocket book, from hacky sacks to carpets! There will also be opportunities for you to buy an alternative gift or living gift,” she said, emphasizing the diversity of the event.

The event also has another side: ethnic foods of many kinds, along with fair-trade coffee, tea and juices.

Admission is $2 per person and the Eagles Hall is wheelchair accessible.
