FTF Conference and Spring Travels
Happy Thursday! The air is warm and filled with drizzle here in Ypsilanti this morning, but we have ZERO complaints :) Winter coats are prepped for seasonal hibernation and Spring garments take the front-running spot in your closet, desperately fighting for your attention. Thankfully, we can help with that. As a matter of fact, our New Apparel works perfect for Easter outfits! Try mixing and matching your layers with some of our brand new colors for a wide variety.
In late March last month, Bena, our fearless leader traveled to Del Mar, California for the annual Fair Trade Federation Conference. She described being surrounded by wonderful, knowledgeable people with high-quality fair trade goods, as well as some excellent presentations from fair trade retailers. A very welcoming environment combined with the sunny southern California climate helped lead the trip to an overall success. The fun doesn't stop there though, as Bena plans to travel to Peru for the second time in 2 months this week for continuing overview of production facilities and strategy. We hope you have an excellent remainder of the week and enjoy the Spring!
