Green Gift Bazaar planned Saturday in Alton

ALTON – People can celebrate Small Business Saturday on Nov. 28 by gathering with friends and family in Downtown Alton at the Green Gift Bazaar.

Alton Main Street is teaming up with the Sierra Club and the YWCA to continue the tradition of “going green.”

The 13th annual Green Gift Bazaar, featuring dozens of eco-artisans and green vendors, will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the YWCA of Alton, 304 E. Third St. in Alton.

There is no entry fee to shop at the Green Gift Bazaar, and holiday craft activities will be provided to keep kids entertained while their parents shop. From 3 to 4, children will be able to make a free pair of earrings, with materials donated by glass artist, Kerry Ellen. Live entertainment will be provided by multi-instrumentalist Nancy Lippincott.

Volunteers on behalf of the hosts, the YWCA of Alton, will offer a bake sale fundraiser and also invite guests to buy tickets for the designer purse raffle.

“We are excited to have this great event back at the YWCA for the second year, and we hope everyone will come out to support our local artisans,” said YWCA Executive Director Andrea Lamer.
