2015 Holiday Gift Fair Was A Success! 

We are proud to announce that this year's gift fair on Dec 12, 2015 was an incredible success! We had thousands of people come through our doors. Many commented on how festive and fun this year was! We sold over $30,000 in alternative gifts for community and global nonprofits! In addition, a memorial pancake breakfast in honor of Nicole Matthewson raised $3500 for three local nonprofits. Our Marketplace featuring fair trade, sustainable products and social enterprises had sales of over $10,000 combined.
