This is a wonderful opportunity for you to find special, unique handmade items from around the world. The artists who created them, will benefit as well from the “fair market” wages they will be paid instead of pennies they are often given for their work. If you are in the Albany area, drive out to Delmar and begin your shopping by working for justice and finding treasures. In Sunday’s Times Union newspaper, there will be an article about this Fair Trade Market. Every product has a human story attached, a story of hope, courage, and endurance.
If you are far away from Albany, do some research to find a Fair Trade Market near your home and support justice for women around the world.
