    We’re Grateful for Fair Trade!

Fair trade is more important than ever, and while the challenges are great, we’re grateful to have you as part of our community. Three cheers for Fair Trade Day this Saturday, May 9th! This week we got a nice surprise from clay artist, Bernardino, which touched our hearts deeply. He sent us this beautiful gratitude video, which we hope you'll enjoy.
