We are not your typical gift store. We are part of the Fair Trade network that supports artisans and small farmers in the developing world. Fair Trade guarantees a living wage for so many talented, creative, hard-working men and women and provides a bonus for social development--for schools and health clinics, housing and economic development. We've seen their faces, we've read and listened to their stories.
So, back to work we go! Starting Friday, May 29, we will be open Tuesday through Saturday, 1-5pm. Customers and staff will be expected to wear masks and practice social distancing in the shop. We have stocked up on coffee and chocolate. We have gifts for Father's Day, and yes, we will soon have Fair Trade masks for purchase.
