Simpson University to Hold 7th Annual Craft & Fair Trade Bazaar

For Immediate Release


7th Annual Craft and Fair Trade Bazaar

REDDING, Calif. - In time for the holiday shopping season, Simpson University announces its 7th annual Craft & Fair Trade Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 15.

The free community event, featuring more than 50 local artisans, four fair-trade partners, and refreshments—including juice and smoothies from Roots Juice—will be inside Simpson’s Heritage Student Life Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Local crafters will feature repurposed home décor, art and unique holiday gifts, vintage jewelry, 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.

The craft fair will raise funds to support the WorldSERVE student missions program and the Annual Student Scholarship Fund at Simpson University.
