What’s New at the Fair Trade Shop

Our Royal Blue Bunny Box from India is made with recycled paper elaborately hand painted using traditional Kashmiri techniques, perfect for storing small treasures or gifts, with a clear gloss finish and solid painted interior. Your purchase creates income and social reform for hundreds and profits are directly channeled into tailormade projects that meet the needs of artisans and their communities.

Our Pastel Quilled Egg Set from Vietnam is remarkeable in detail and craftsmanship, covered with dozens of individually coiled paper details in beautiful colors and patterns. Your purchase provides training and employment, supports social and environmental programs and promotes hope and independence.

These two items are featured this month at our Fair Trade Shop, Stone Presbyterian Church, 8 So. Park Row, Clinton.  We have a large selection of baskets, exquisite jewelry, collectibles, wood items, chocolate and food items, clothing, and toys from 38 different countries. Purchasing fair trade ensures artisans and small farmers fair wages and healthy working conditions, providing dignity, sustainable development and hope to marginalized people.
