Live music, film and poetry will also be presented throughout the day, aligning with the bazaars focus on reducing the economic conditions of poverty an idea not typically associated with the usual whirlwind of big-box store one-day sales and consumer-driven gift madness. Along with People of Hope Crafts, Emergency USA, Ladies Sewing Circle, Bread and Roses Workers Cultural Center, Bead for Life and animal-conscious Cruelty-Free World will have items for sale, made under the premise of providing products produced safely and ethically for the greater good.
The Holiday Bazaar takes place from noon to 4 p.m. at the Mercury, 2199 California Street; admission is free. For information, call 303-294-9258 or visit www.mercurycafe.com.
