At our meeting/workshop on Tuesday, I will be selling fair trade handwoven and other handcrafted goods from two women’s cooperatives in Guatemala, Mayan Hands and UPAVIM. Please bring cash or checks and be prepared to buy!
This is the last year I will do this, because I’m needed more at home. If anyone is interested in doing it next year, I’d be happy to explain what is involved and to help next year. Basically, I get a consignment of goods, check the shipments against the inventory list, take the stuff to various places to sell, and send back the unsold items. Most sales are at the Harvard Unitarian Church’s Fair Trade Faire. It’s a very worthwhile cause, and seeing and handling all the goods is fun.
See you on Tuesday!
