Global Gifts is a non-profit business committed to creating sustainable economic opportunities and safe and equitable working conditions for disadvantaged artisans and farmers around the world. From jewelry and home goods to toys and food items, our stores are filled with handmade, one-of-a-kind items from nearly 40 different countries.
But that’s not the best part... Global Gifts' products are fair trade so you can be confident that your purchases have been produced ethically and artisans have been paid a fair wage. We pay our artisans upfront for our orders, and we only work with vendors and groups who take great care of their artisans.
We also mentioned we're a non-profit business - in fact, we're 501c3 certified! We rely on our volunteers, donors, and customers like YOU to help us support our artisan groups with continued orders. Our volunteers support our small team of staff in keeping our stores open, helping with special events, fundraising, customer service, and spreading the word about fair trade.
