Fair Trade Holiday Boutique

"the friendly church"

"the friendly church"

Mary Ruth Circle women's group is hosting a "Fair Trade Holiday Boutique" featuring items handcrafted by women in developing countries. The sale proceeds go directly to the female 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, housewares, soaps, ornaments, home decor items and more!

This is a wonderful opportunity to get some holiday shopping done and help women break out of poverty at the same time.

The event will be held at Christ United Methodist Church in Deerfield, 600 Deerfield Rd. (one block east of Waukegan), Saturday, November 12, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Contact:
