Our Story



We are a family owned & operated shop, specializing in international fair-trade & handmade crafts. We've been present for more than 20 years in Mansfield Connecticut. Our business is devoted to indigenous people worldwide. 

She and Caroline, with Jerry sometimes joining them, have hand-picked every item in the shop for the past 20 years. They know the history of every item on the shelves. They can tell stories about the people who made them. They know the crafting traditions of myriad countries. Sometimes people come to shop, at 285 Stafford Road, and sometimes just to talk travel.
