For three decades now, a locally organized event has been helping makers and artisans around the world feed and house their families, send their children to school and maintain a sense of dignity by selling their handmade goods for a fair price. The Jubilee International Marketplace, held at the start of the holiday shopping season each year by First Presbyterian Church in downtown Spokane, again will feature dozens of vendors selling handmade items from all around the globe. These fairly traded goods include jewelry, clothing, artwork, home goods and more, made in places like Chile, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Thailand, Zambia and beyond. The two-day event is a great way to kickstart the giving season and get a head start on your own gift buying, all while supporting a worthy cause.
Fri, Nov. 2 from 10 am-7 pm and Sat, Nov. 3 from 9 am-4 pm • Free admission • First Presbyterian Church • 318 S. Cedar St. • facebook.com/JubileeInternationalMarketplace
