The idea of the Alternative Gift Fair (AGF) is to offer First United Methodist Church (FUMC) members and the Denton community an alternative for their holiday shopping. Over 35 vendors sell their one-of-a-kind artisan items and crafts providing an alternative for gift giving and, at the same time, raising money with 100% benefiting the non-profit organizations represented. Fair trade goods, handmade merchandise by third-world-country artisans and merchandise donated by both FUMC members and Denton locals make the fair an event not to be missed. People from around our region come to the fair year after year to buy creative and unique items in a fun and safe environment, avoiding the rush and craziness of the malls.
FUMC has many success stories demonstrating that together we can make a difference in our community and the world.
AGF’s Community and Congregational Artisans’ (CCA) booth offers unique, handmade, local items such as wood working, painting, jewelry, stained glass, and much more.
All profits from the CCA booth will go to Giving HOPE, Inc.
So please come out and join us Nov 8th – 10th. Purchase gifts with a conscience from a variety of vendors across our region. We garauntee a fun time will be had by all!
