COFFEE-ETC & Holiday Boutique
Fair trade coffee, tea, & chocolate, as well as fairly traded and earth friendly household items, gifts & crafts. COFFEE-ETC carries Fair Trade & Native American coffee, tea, chocolate, sugar, other foodstuffs & consumables (the "ETC" stands for tea and all the other good things). Sales are generally open every other Sunday. The HOLIDAY BOUTIQUE offers a wide variety of ethically traded and sustainably crafted merchandise from our FAIR TRADE BOUTIQUE, including jewelry, accessories, tableware, cards, art, and much, much more! A different selection of merchandise is available at any given time. In addition, we feature offerings of products from the CONSCIENTIOUS CONSUMER BOUTIQUE that are environmentally friendly and that support Sustainable Living. These range from Fair Trade products that are made from recycled and/or sustainably harvested materials to environmentally friendly natural garden products. In addition to fairly traded, earth friendly products, we support US vendors that protect worker's rights, practice socially and environmentally responsible policies, and source their products through a fair supply chain. Among these products are Reusable Shopping Bags, recycled & compostable plastic bags, energy efficient compact fluorescent lamps, tree-friendly and fairtrade greeting and note cards, and organic soap. The Boutique this week will feature earth-friendly seasonal greeting cards and wrapping paper, a Fair Trade ornament tree, and other seasonal items. We will also have a selection of unique fairly traded apparel, including scarves and gloves knitted from recycled silk.
