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!
