Thank you, Menlo Pres! The "pop-up" shop is a wonderful idea! It directly helps people in impoverished areas in a way that encourages local industry AND it gives us in this anything-but-impoverished part of the world an opportunity to find unique, hand-made gifts. This volunteer-manned shop is a lovely example of the Christmas message of "peace on Earth, good will to men."
