“They might say, ‘My supplies actually cost this much money,’ but it could be, ‘My costs were that it took this much time,’ or ‘I missed my daughter’s soccer game,’” Weissman explains. “There’s something about humanizing a commercial exchange that I think, hopefully, helps with the initial question as to why you would pay a little more to support someone local.”
The market will run from 5 to 9 p.m. today at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue. At 6:30 p.m., Weissman and Warm Cookies will lead a discussion on the true cost of gifts. Admission is free; cookies and hot cocoa will be provided. For more information, visit warmcookiesoftherevolution.org.
