Numerous crafts and Christmas decorations will be available, as well as coffee, chocolate and other treats.
Fabulous goods from around the world will be on sale. Purchasers can feel good knowing that the global artisans are fairly compensated for their creativity and hard work through the Ten Thousand Villages organization. All proceeds go to supporting people in developing countries.
