This weekend: Global Gift Fair at Menlo Church

 

Humanitarian holiday shopping will come to Menlo Park in the form of the Global Gift Fair, set to take place on Saturday, Nov. 14, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, now Menlo Church, located at 900 Santa Cruz Ave.

Handmade artisan crafts and wares from around the world, including jewelry, earrings, necklaces, tableware and bags, will be for sale, thanks to Menlo Church's partnership with Heavenly Treasures, a nonprofit that promotes microenterprise in less-developed countries, and Artisan Connect.

Mark Swarner, central ministry leader and missions pastor at the church, said proceeds from the fair will go toward ensuring "that those who create the items get a good wage for their work."

According to the Heavenly Treasures website, the organization supports microenterprises by providing "business and product development, local marketing strategies, spiritual guidance and international marketing."

The Global Gift Fair will also take place at the church's San Mateo and Mountain View campuses.

In Mountain View, at 1667 Miramonte Ave., the fair will run on Saturday, Nov.14, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. In San Mateo, at 4150 Picadilly Lane, it will take place on Sunday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
