Alternative Christmas Market
The Davidsonville United Methodist Women hosted an Alternative Christmas Market in November os 2017. Shoppers were able to purchase unique gifts AND help women in less developed countries. Ten Thousand Villages, a fair trade organization, partnered with us for this great event! The organization buys handmade fair-trade items from around the world at a fair price, then markets them in the United States. There was an amazing range of items including toys, scarves, placemats, jewelry, various baskets, scented soaps, stationery sets, and different olive wood items. Christmas ornaments will be available.
Ten Thousand Villages then donated a percentage of the proceeds back to us which were donated to a local shelter for battered women!
