Kern United Methodist Church has an alternative craft fair on Saturday. It starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m.
A press release said the fair will offer shoppers the chance to get unique gifts that make a difference; help provide income, hope, and dignity for some of the world’s poorest people; provide stewardship of the Earth’s resources; and support local and global programs that change lives.
According to the release, the fair will feature handcrafted, high quality gifts; fair-trade coffee, chocolate, and olive oil; clothing, compact discs, and African crafts; and hand-carved items from Palestine. There will also be baked goods, local crafts, used jewelry and books, and pictures with Santa.
