All are invited to the annual 
La Mesa Fair Trade Gift Event 
from 8am to 1:30pm on Sunday, October 14th.

Enjoy Fair Trade Ben & Jerry’s ice cream while perusing the aisles of hand made baskets, jewelry, purses, belts, wallets, handbags, jackets, scarves, toys, pottery, Christmas ornaments, gift baskets, coffee, tea, chocolate and lots more!  Lots of vendors!  Lots of samples! 

Make a difference with your purchases 
this season by improving people’s lives and the environment.
 
The Fair Trade movement involves a vision of a world in which justice and sustainable development are at the heart of trade structures and practices.  This involves, primarily, paying farmers and artisans in developing countries a fair price for their goods and thereby alleviating poverty and poor living conditions.




Envisioning a fair future, Threads Worldwide held an amazing event at Eclipse Chocolates in South Park, San Diego this past week.  Meeting the founders of Threads Worldwide, we learned of the impact that is made through Threads Worldwide.  Empowering women in developing countries was well received by over 45 women who attended this event on Tuesday and in Temecula on Wed. Threads Worldwide invite women in the US to start their own social impact businesses showcasing the handcrafted fair trade jewelry of talented artisan partners in Guatemala, India, Uganda and beyond.
