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

And don't miss the tasty home-made Palestinian food and Middle Eastern music too!

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 difficult 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 who have done the work. We spend an entire year collecting these goods from Palestine; we hope you can join us.

This year's sale will once again feature beautiful handmade carpets, kilims, and textiles made in Anatolia/Turkey, presented by Bridges to the East.

Thank you from the women of Joining Hands, the Middle East Children's Alliance and Bridges to the East.
