WHAT: World of Good BLOWOUT Warehouse Sale! World of Good, an Emeryville-based company that sells fair trade gifts and housewares sourced from artisan groups in the developing world, is hosting their first warehouse sale of 2008 next weekend. Their beautiful and ethically-sourced handmade items—from house-wares to jewelry to scarves to journals—will be sold for just $2 apiece. The two-day event is open to the public.

Our goal this year is to raise $5,000 that will help to support our artisan communities through the development of water and irrigation systems, education initiatives, and public health programs.
