Dec. 8: MERIL Coffee and Crafts Fair!

Looking for that perfect, one-of-a-kind gift this holiday season?

Join us from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 8 for the MERIL Coffee and Crafts Fair: A Marketplace for Local Artisans. There is no entrance fee; you can stop by to visit and shop at no cost. We’ll be at the MERIL office in St. Joseph (4420 South 40th Street).

Local vendors will be selling handcrafted originals, including: sewing/crochet items, wreaths, woodwork, ceramics, jewelry, and more!

Plus, we will be introducing our artisan MERIL coffee, which we are selling as a fundraiser in partnership with Mokaska (www.mokaska.com). We are providing free samples to shoppers at the event, and we will have bags of coffee available to order. MERIL’s proceeds from the coffee sales go directly to our Independent Living services for people with disabilities in Northwest Missouri.

We look forward to seeing you there!
