Happy Customers

I wandered into this store a few weeks ago shopping for a friends’ gift. I wanted to buy everything! Super unique fair trade handmade crafts, purses, bags, home stuff, jewelry, musical instruments, wall decor, chocolate, kid stuff, clothing, scarves and gloves… wonderful colors, textures, fabrics. All high quality but good price range: small stuff and bigger fancier things, so I was more than able to get a really unique gift without breaking the bank. I highly recommend this place for getting gifts, the friendly staff, supporting fair trade and getting lost in another world for a little while!

Everything is about fair trade goods in this store. Fair trade stuff are sometimes not so cool, unfashionable etc… But this store is full of cute stuff and good selection. Many of them are made in Mexico, Guatemala, Kenya etc… I bought cute angel earrings made in Mexico and I feel happy with wearing them! There are some good selected books also and it was a nice coincidence when I found a book ‘Mountains beyond mountains’ by Tracy Kidder piled up on the shelf which I just finished reading before coming by the store.
