Home for Holidays Gift Market to feature Guatemalan handicrafts, calendars Nov. 26

HOUGHTON -- Copper Country Guatemala Accompaniment Project (CCGAP) members will be selling Guatemalan handicrafts at the Home for the Holidays Gift Market from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 26, at the Rozsa Center. These will include jewelry and textiles, bags and scarves, even some gently worn clothes for which you can bargain.

"We'll also have the ARTE MAYA calendars for 2012," says Sue Ellen Kingsley, CCGAP executive director. "Those of you who have had these calendars in the past know how brilliant and beautiful the paintings are; many of us save the calendars from year to year because they're too lovely to throw away."

When you buy a calendar you are supporting not only CCGAP, but also NISGUA (the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala) and the artists and their families in Guatemala. Prices are $20 each for one or two calendars, $18 each for three or four calendars, and $15 each for five calendars or more. Student rate is $15. You can also buy the calendars online at

See you at the Rozsa!
