Join us from 10 – 4 on at
for shopping, food,
and an opportunity to change the world!
(As of summer, 2020, we are currently planning as close-to-normal a Market as we can, with abundant room left for dealing with challenges as needed. –Your volunteer “Market Crew” team members)
Alternative gifts honor family, friends, and colleagues and provide an alternative to our modern culture of consumerism.
Instead of buying candy for Aunt Sally, a shopper at this market might sponsor food for a pantry in the U.S. or purchase medicines for families in a developing country. Aunt Sally receives an attractive card telling her about this unique gift given in her honor. You also may choose to give her a hand-made ornament to represent the gift; complimentary ornaments handmade by volunteers, are a unique feature of the Wichita Alternative Gift Market.
Most of the gifts at such a market are available through the Alternative Gifts International annual catalog. The gifts offered in the “Gifts Inspiring Change” catalog are unique. They are gifts of peace and justice, gifts that are sustainable and that build security. These alternative gifts multiply and grow, sometimes exponentially, and offer hope and new life to people facing grave crises and need. They challenge the trivia of our modern culture. These are authentic gifts that people really use and cherish. They always fit and are never thrown away.
Special thanks to our sponsors for the 2020 Wichita Alternative Gift Market:
