Holiday shopping can be challenging. But the Peace Education Center is looking to make it easy.

The Peace Education Center’s (PEC’s) Alternative Holiday Sale provides the mid-Michigan area with an opportunity to shop in a way that can make spending money feel good and do good for the world.

It takes place Nov. 16-17 at the Edgewood United Church, 469 N. Hagadorn, East Lansing.

Sale hours are Friday, Nov. 16, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; and Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Vendors will include favorites such as Soulful Earth Herbals, Global Gifts, Earth Wisdom, Cat’s Cradle and many more offering local artists’ unique creations and practical goods for home and body.

PEC seeks to support local vendors in order to promote the economic growth of our area, and also to offer sustainable shopping options. Some profits from the sale will go toward assisting the Peace Education Center in its yearly programming and organizing around peace and justice issues.

Like last year, the Friday evening sale will take place during the Ten Pound Fiddle concert, which will feature folksinger Sam Gleaves. For information on the concert, visit the Ten Pound Fiddle website.

Entry to the sale is free, but tickets are necessary for the concert.

In addition to all the sale items, dinner will be available on Friday, as well as lunch on Saturday.
