Alternative Holiday Sale – Support Our Vendors

The Peace Education Center has been hosting the Alternative Holiday Sale for over 10 years. This event provides an excellent opportunity to support the local economy, local business, and the Peace Education Center. 
Last year PEC was unable to hold the alternative sale and the associated fundraising opportunity it traditionally offered. But vendors who traditionally showcased their products deserved our support so we had setup a shop online to show them our support.
