'A Giving Market' offers fair trade gifts

Looking to buy holiday gifts that make a difference? Look no further than A Giving Market, set for 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, at 5ive, A Vintage Market, 514 E. Sheldon St. in Prescott.

A Giving Market is presented by Bought Beautifully, a nonprofit organization started by Prescott native Emily Acklin Betzler. The organization acts as a global marketplace for fair trade products, including jewelry, journals, clothing and home décor.

The products are made by companies doing business ethically - paying fair wages, providing a safe and positive work

environment, not using child or slave labor.

There's a misconception that shopping ethically is expensive, Betzler said: "It's pretty affordable."

Most of the items are priced in the $15-$35 range.
