Fair Trade shop features items from Guatemala

Posted

CLINTON — The Fair Trade Shop at Stone Presbyterian Church, 8 S. Park Row, is featuring specialty items from Guatemala during the month of July.

Diego, an artisan carpenter who lives in a small town on the coast of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, his wife Raquel, and their nephew Pedro hand-carve wooden kitchen servers from reclaimed wood for a sustainable, living wage. Coming from reclaimed wood, each piece features unique natural lines and knots that are carefully sanded to preserve the raw individuality of the wood.

These unique wood measuring spoons are finished with food-safe raw tung oil, and each spoon is durable and protected against the elements.

These and several more uniquely-handcrafted gift items from 38 different countries can be found at the Fair Trade Shop.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Thursday in the shop and at Clinton Farmers Market at the Village Green, as well as second Saturdays of the month in the shop.

Purchasing fair trade items ensures artisans and small farmers fair wages and healthy working conditions, providing dignity, sustainable development and hope to marginalized people. Visit the shop at https://buildingstonesshoppe.square.site or www.facbook.com/buildingstonesfairtradeshoppe.
