Shop locally, help globally


To the Editor: 

When you are out and about, be sure to stop by the Capawock Theater in Vineyard Haven. They are open every day from 10 am to 5 pm until Christmas. They have the most incredible selection of unique art, gifts, scarves, dolls, jewelry, ornaments, clothing, creches, etc., at very reasonable prices. Every item is made by a woman/survivor from a country suffering from some tragedy or war. Your purchases go a long way to help women around the globe. Tell your friends and neighbors. They won’t be disappointed! (
