Fair Trade

We are proud to be a Ten Thousand Villages Alliance Store, or a Fair Trade store-within-a-store. In addition to Ten Thousand Villages, we also have crafts from SERRV, Blessing Baskets, Handmade Expressions, The Leakey Collection, Equal Exchange Coffee and Chocolate, and more.

 

Our selection of Fair Trade jewelry is a popular area of our store! Earrings, necklaces, bracelets and accessories such as beautiful scarves line our walls. These are imported from developing countries around the world such as India, Chile, Peru, Philippines, Kenya and many more.

 

What is Fair Trade? It’s a system of trade that promotes fair prices and honest practices in dealing with the craftspeople; sustainable development; assistance with design and business practices; and up-front payment and long term relationships so that the craftspeople can afford supplies and count on sales.

 

 

But most of all, the crafts and jewelry are gorgeous and offered at wonderful prices!
