Being the only girl in my household, we don’t do girly things like go to craft shows and bazaars. So, when a friend invites me to help her use free tickets to the Junior League Holiday Mart, I’m in.
We head to the Indiana State Fairgrounds on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Life happened to my friend the day prior so she is preoccupied and we browse through the booths fairly quickly. I am a pretty quick shopper (the only girl in the house, remember) so I can handle the pace. The booths have similar items falling into groupings of jewelry, food, boutique fashion, accessories, children’s clothing and small household items. I don’t see anything for the guys at my house. I find a purse for my niece at a booth run by the Center for Global Impact. Items are made by women in Cambodia and proceeds support these women and their education and business development. I try to support these types of nonprofits and the chance to support a good cause helps narrow my choices of which booth to buy from.
