Covenant Gift Market  Dec. 2014To make holiday shopping enjoyable and rewarding, swap stressful Lenox Square crowds for the Global Gift Market at Covenant Presbyterian Church on Sunday, Dec. 13. From 12:30 to 5 p.m., shoppers can select from an array of handcrafted gifts, including jewelry, home decor, accessories and food products, including chocolate, coffee and cocoa from the Presbyterian Coffee Project, an initiative of the Presbyterian Church USA.

The sales support the efforts of Ten Thousand Villages, one of the largest fair-trade organizations in the world, representing artisans from 38 countries, spanning Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. It specializes in promoting the works of village artisans who craft one-of-akind items, ranging from festive trays and platters that can grace a holiday table to scarves and bags that make unique stocking stuffers.

The crafts at Convenant Presbyterian’s annual holiday bazaar are sourced from artisans across 38 countries with distinct styles. The array of fairtrade goods for sale makes gift giving go a long way.

The gift market will also support Covenant Presbyterian’s work with the La Gonâve Haiti Partnership that furthers education, healthcare, agriculture and economic growth in the island country.

Prior to the bazaar, the church will hold its lesson and carols service at 11 a.m., which is open to all. The Global Gift Market elevates the season of giving from one of hectic traffic and long lines to one of global impact and philanthropy. – Jamie Hausman
