No, we’re not going out of business. We’re celebrating summer with up to 70% off select items! With a huge summer sale like this, it might be natural to assume that the reason why we’re offering this sale is because we’re struggling. But the real story is that we love the products the makers create and we love being able to bring new handcrafted items to the Canadian marketplace. In order to continue supporting the makers we work with, we need to make room in our inventory so we can bring more of their handcrafted products to our stores.
“Thank you for buying our products and showing your appreciation for our craft. It keeps us working to support our families.”
Sadrole Louis Jeune, Comité Artisanal Haïtien (CAH)
This sale is also for you, our customers. Not only will it allow us to continue to share new, exciting and useful products, but it’s also to show our appreciation and say ‘thank you’ to all of you for helping us achieve our mission. Together, we’re improving the lives of makers in developing countries by supporting their craft.
“Canadians have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices, you can support small scale producers to provide better living conditions.”
Oscar Santa, Sapia
As always, the sales that we run do not impact the makers. As a founding member of the WFTO, our business is guided by the 10 principles of fair trade and as such, all the makers we work with have been paid in full.
Be a part of the story and help us celebrate our mission by joining in the fun of the summer sale. Shop for loved ones and give a gift with meaning, or shop for yourself and get your home (indoors and outdoors) and wardrobe ready for summer.
