Fair Trade fun stuff!

We’re about to start placing orders for our Fair Trade merchandise!

…big dangly earrings… flowing woven scarves… colorful purses and accessory bags… unique wall tapestries… funky ceramic dishes… stunning window mosaics… rich wood and bone bowls & kitchen utensils… bright loom-weaved baby booties… and so much more.

What kinds of things would you like to see in the store? What would you feel good about buying from a Fair Trade artisan?

You definitely should feel good for supporting Fair Trade! Fair Trade means that nothing is made in a sweatshop. Every artisan is paid a fair wage for their work. They have good working conditions, and are able to enjoy the benefits of making a living wage while practicing traditional art forms. Communities are empowered, as are the disadvantaged members of many communities (women especially) who are often the producers of Fair Trade goods.

So leave us a comment about what you’d like to be able to purchase, as a treat for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, from a Fair Trade artisan! We’ll see if we can find it for you. 🙂
