“I’m so happy to be back in the store after a 7 year hiatus! My two kids are also excited that I’m working in a place that lends itself to buying them fair traded goodies! I really enjoy meeting people from all over the world that come in and am proud to tell them that fair trade is happening here in the United States.”
