Hours are from 4 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. Here, sale organizers, from left to right, Suze Quinlan, Liz Loescher and Darlene Cox arrange items from Ten Thousand Villages, which will be on sale over the weekend. The merchandise is handmade by artisans from more than 30 countries and encompasses a wide variety of items that make ideal gifts for the holidays.
