Global Fayre has a weekend of Fair Trade Fairs!

We have a crazy weekend ahead.

The store is pretty busy anyway, with the spring weather bringing visitors for near and afar to downtown Springfield, but on top of that we have two Fair Trade Fayres over the weekend!

The first is at Pathways UMC on Dale and National. It starts today (Saturday) 9am to 2pm, and then continues tomorrow for a couple of hours around the morning service. Pathways was the first event for us, this time last year, and so it’s great to be back, although just a little scary that a whole year has gone past so quickly! We’ve changed the mix of products a little – the organizers seemed really pleased with the display when we set up last night.

The second event is a new one for us. We’ll be at Unity Universalist tomorrow from 10am onwards (till mid-afternoon). They have a busy schedule, and this is their first Fayre , so we’re excited to see how that goes.

What’s really great is the feeling that 16 months after we opened the store, and just two years after we first started at the Farmers Market on Commercial Street, we are starting to make progress in raising awareness of Global Fayre and (more importantly) Fair Trade in our part of world.
