“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across waters to create many ripples.”
When you shop fair trade, you provide opportunity, freedom, and hope to families around the world. All of our gifts are handmade by men and women who are working toward the dream of a better life. Fair trade ensures safe working conditions, fair pay, and access to the global market. This opportunity equals food, shelter, and clean water. Families are able to send their children to school, changing the course for the next generation.
Your purchase creates ripples beyond measure.
We want to bring joy, freedom, and hope to men and women around the world through job creation. It's pretty simple. We sell some stuff. You buy some stuff. People get to work. We feature established fair trade brands and are creating relationships directly with artisan groups around the world. The Shop offers products for your every day life, and all of your gift giving needs. We believe that by choosing to purchase fair trade goods, we can each play a part in ending poverty.
The Shop is located in beautiful Paw Paw, Michigan. We share a space with local coffee roasters, Van Buren Coffee Company. The Shop offers a welcoming environment, so sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee or shop from our ethically created goods. All of our gifts are handmade, by artisans around the world who are working their way out of poverty. Fair trade creates a bridge between skilled workers in underdeveloped countries and the global market. Every product has a story, and your purchase supports an artisan, their family, and community.
