From clothing to accessories, children's gear, art and baked goods, this year's Heart and Hands Emporium should have a little something for everyone.

The Women's Ministry of the First Baptist Church of Gainesville has organized the shopping event with the theme "Changing the World One Purchase at a Time," which will benefit the North House in Gainesville, a facility for women recovering from drug and alcohol addictions.

More than 50 vendors will sell their goods Friday and Saturday in the church banquet hall to raise money for the cause.

Along with shopping, there will be special entertainment, prize drawings and food including homemade baked goods.

For shoppers who want to make a donation to North House, admission will cost $10.
