Yesterday I picked up these lovely earrings from Ten Thousand Villages. This shop is unique in the fact that it is a nonprofit Fair Trade Organization. They purchase beautiful merchandise that is handcrafted by artisans in low-income countries for a fair price and sell it in shops all over Canada.
These earrings were made by an artisan in India. I also picked up a handcrafted birthday card made by a child in Kenya and a lovely hand-woven basket by a person in Bangladesh. By purchasing fair trade products, you allow these low-income artisans to be fairly compensated and provide for their families. I encourage you to take a look in this store if you haven't already done so. They sell gorgeous jewelry, housewares and art that you won't find anywhere else.
I look forward to wearing these with many outfits this summer. They will be a nice way to brighten up a white t-shirt. I hope you all have enjoyed your weekend so far!
