Buying Fair Trade is a great way to support grassroots efforts for change in the developing world.  By buying Fair Trade you ensure that the people producing the goods you buy are paid a just wage for their labor.  Join us for the Fair Trade Holiday Sale to learn more, support artisans and cooperatives, and to get beautiful products from around the world!

To learn more about the organizations attending* the fair, please visit their websites:

*In addition to supporting the work by artisan's associated with each organization, we ask each vendor to pay a small fee for participating in the event.  This money is then donated to two scholarship programs - one in Nicaragua and one in El Salvador.  If you would like more information about these scholarships, please contact the VSLC.

Please call the VSLC at 617-552-1317 with any questions!  We look forward to seeing you!
