I love this store in Old Town Fairfax! They have an eclectic mix of jewelry, kitchen wares, specialty chocolate, scarves, wind chimes and knick knacks. While I do think that some of their items are a bit pricey I highly value their commitment to fair trade. Their jewelry is my favorite and they have a great selection of metals and beads. Some of the jewelry and other wares are also made to improve the lives of individuals living in third world countries and I think that’s a worthy mission that I chose to support.
Another appealing aspect of this store is that it is an independent store and not affiliated with a large chain e.g., World Market or Pier One. I think that gives them some flexibility in the products that they choose to promote as well as in how they manage their business.
I highly recommend this store to support a local independent business and fair trade across the world.
