The sponsors of this show have been working with women artisans in low-resource rural and urban areas of Turkey to help in product development, micro-business training and marketing. The sale will feature one-of-a-kind scarves, kilims, caftans, jewelry, hand-knit items, handbags, copperware, shoes and ceramics, all hand-made in Turkey.

Turkish pastries and refreshments will also be available.
