The socially and environmentally-minded principles we were founded upon still form the backbone for our product selection, so we’ve always had a focus on local, sustainable, and ethically produced and traded goods.
It may be true that Christmas has become a marketplace tool to increase sales of consumer goods, yet it’s still an opportunity to show love and thoughtfulness to family, friends, and community, to help keep our local economy strong, and to reap the benefits of giving – encouraged by countless cultural and spiritual traditions, and even scientifically shown to trigger parts of our brain that make us feel good.
Gifting can mean a lot of things, from sharing a meal in the age-old tradition of breaking bread in community, giving a special or useful gift, acknowledging abundance in our own lives by passing some of it on, to creating the special magic and fun that Christmas can bring. We’re here to help make the magic happen.
If you’re looking for something special, please get in touch with us! We’re happy to answer any questions you might have. Call 206-329-1545 or e-mail email@example.com.
