REDDING, Calif. - In time for the holiday shopping season, Simpson University announces its 6th annual Craft & Fair Trade Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 17.

The free community event, featuring more than 60 local artisans and five fair-trade partners, will be inside Simpson’s Heritage Student Life Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Local crafters will feature photography, vintage jewelry, repurposed home décor, natural soaps, and other items.

Fair Trade guarantees producers and artisans in poor countries fair payment for the purchase of their goods. Its goal is to foster local development and improve producers’ living conditions. Fair Trade contributes to sustainable development.
