Heifer International Living Gift Market
Tomorrow and Sunday -December 6 and 7
10 a.m. – 4 p.m
at Heifer International
216 Wachusett St., Rutland
Get out to the country this weekend! Experience the peace of nature that feels like TRUE Christmas!
Ditch the crowds, the gift-grabbing yahoos … the avarice and head to Heifer International for their holiday event!
What a great way to teach kids about other cultures, other kids around the world … yes, there’s the poverty, but there’s more … open their eyes!
You know how this vegetarian feels about killing animals, but you can make your donation go toward buying cows/animals that are milked. Usually, on these tiny family farms, the animals are cared for, considered so very important because the families’ survival depends on them!
And, at this special holiday market, you also get to:
See and buy FAIR TRADE gifts from around the world!
Drink hot cocoa and cider!
Munch gingerbread animal cookies!
Get toasty warm around a cool bonfire!
A donation of a couple of cans of soup, beans, vegetables, etc. for poor families.

December 5 – 7
Head on down to the Sprinkler Factory, 38 Harlow Street (off Lincoln Street) to be wowed by artists and their art!
Sure, you, I and anybody with a pretty good eye can get artsy-craft-sy, cute/pretty and make stuff, but here’s your chance to buy real art by real artists this holiday season! I love going to “Open Studios” because you can WATCH the artists make their bowls or vases … ask them about the technical stuff ( How many degrees is it in that kiln?! How hot before you fire your stuff??), etc. You don’t have to buy to have a good time and learn! A whole different world
So … check out the …
