Fair Trade Shop offers Bright Day hampers


CLINTON — The Fair Trade Shop at Stone Presbyterian Church, 8 S. Park Row, will feature Bright Day hampers, made of saris from Bangladesh, during the month of February.

Authentic sari garments come in a wide variety of colors and patterns that are all as vibrant as the culture they come from.  When recycled, sari cotton is wrapped around kaisa grass, it can be woven into a striking basket, with a color and pattern all its own. A unique take on the shop’s best-selling worry dolls from Guatemala, these headbands are handcrafted with care and lined with almost 24 traditional dolls. Each doll’s face is hand-painted, so every item is one-of-a-kind. The dolls are clothed in assorted colors and patterns and each headband is guaranteed to fit most adult heads. This and several more unique and handcrafted gift items 38 different countries can be found at the Fair Trade Shop.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Thursday and second Saturdays. Purchasing fair trade items ensures artisans and small farmers fair wages and healthy working conditions, providing dignity, sustainable development and hope to marginalized people.
