The sale takes place on this one day only at A NEW LOCATION Live Oak Park Recreation Center, 10 AM to 4 PM.

Stop by to find last year’s favorites as well as many new items!

And don’t miss the tasty homemade Palestinian food and Middle Eastern music too!

We will have a small souq (market area) featuring olive oil, olives, honey, special Middle Eastern spices and more.

This is a great opportunity to buy something quite special and make a humanitarian contribution at the same time. By promoting traditional handicrafts, you support the economic self-help efforts of those living in close to poverty level conditions in the West Bank and Gaza.

We hope that you can come and that you will invite your friends. This sale is a benefit for those craftspeople that have done the work. We spend an entire year collecting these goods from Palestine.

Thank you from the women of Joining Hands and the Middle East Children’s Alliance
