CLINTON — Keep feet toasty this winter with organic Merino wool Maggie’s socks from the Fair Trade Shop at Stone Presbyterian Church, 8 S. Park Row this winter.

The wool is grown by over 100 family farmers in the Chubut region of southern Argentina and made in the U.S. The shop has a selection of colored and patterned socks, along with jewelry, baskets, collectibles, wood items, chocolate and food items, and clothing and toys from 38 countries.

“Purchasing fair trade items ensures artisans and small farmers fair wages and healthy working conditions, providing dignity, sustainable development and hope for marginalized people,” the shop noted.

Shop hours are 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. every Thursday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. second Saturdays each month. For more information, contact Lauralyn Kolb at lkolb@hamilton.edu or 315-725-1326, visit the website at www.stonepres.org or like the shop on Facebook at www.facebook.com/stonepres.
