Christmas Market with a Difference
is returning for its 30th year at Church of Christ at Dartmouth College (that's the white church with the steeple behind Baker-Berry Library on campus)
Saturday November 9, 10am–2pm.
Twenty nonprofit organizations will be selling fair trade, handcrafted items made by artisans from around the world. The "difference" is that 100% of the proceeds go to the participating charitable organizations and their artisans. You can find jewelry, apparel, linens, baskets, toys, cards, specialty foods, and lots more. It's a great way to make a positive impact in the world...through shopping! Find out more at:
