Dec 7-12 Alternative Gift Fair

December 7-12 (Monday - Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Oberlin College Science Center; Saturday, 1:00-4:00 p.m. at First Church)  The Third Annual Alternative Gift Fair offers an array of unique holiday gift giving opportunities from local nonprofits doing good work in the community and around the world.  The fair takes place Monday through Friday in the Oberlin College Science Center's Bent Corridor (corner of Lorain and Woodland Streets) and Saturday at First Church (corner of Main and Lorain Streeet).  All proceeds benefit the nonprofit participants and make a difference in their work serving others.  Stop by the Oberlin Heritage Center's table and order an engraved century-old brick to honor someone you love or to mark a special occasion for someone on your holiday gift list.  Give the gift of an Oberlin Heritage Center membership to the person who likes being part of a good thing.  Wrap up an Apollo Theater tee-shirt, a deck of historic Oberlin playing cards, or a one-of-a-kind piece of Jean Simon's exquisitely hand-made jewelry and see the smiles come out this holiday season.  You'll find something for everyone at the only-in-Oberlin Alternative Gift Fair!
