29th Annual International Holiday Market – 11/12 and 11/13

The city-wide International Holiday Market offers shoppers an opportunity to purchase unique, handmade crafts – such as baskets, holiday ornaments, jewelry, bags, pottery, clothing, musical instruments, paper and note cards, home furnishings, toys, and brass ware – from nonprofits that assist artisans in over 20 countries.  Proceeds are returned to the artisans, providing jobs, an income, and hope for people from developing areas.  Austin’s International Holiday Market is part of the international fair trade movement – an effort to establish an equitable and fair partnership between marketers in North America and producers in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and other parts of the world.
