We’ve appreciated the coverage that our local media has given Global Fayre and Fair Trade ever since we started at the C-Street Farmers market two years ago.
The Springfield Business Journal published an interview with David this week….
We’ve often mentioned Cael from Baskets of Africa who is our main supplier of African baskets.
Cael got a great write-up in Crafts Report last month; you can download the whole article here. (note:it’s a large file)
We made a trip to our local NPR station yesterday (www.ksmu.org) to be interviewed by a wonderful lady, Ilga Vise of the League of Women Voters. With Missy Shelton at the controls, Ilga spent nearly 10 minutes asking some great questions about Fair Trade in general and Global Fayre in particular.
You can hear the result here.
It will be aired on Monday March 23rd in the morning between 7 and 9.
We had a nice write-up from Juliana Goodwin today in our local newspaper (Springfield News-Leader). The focus was on eco-friendly clothes, and Juliana featured our Tees-for-Change T-shirts and baby onesies. She also featured a bag that Global Fayre and Anna Sophia’s both retail, from Ganesh Himal Trading….a really cool recycled inner tube from a tyre!

We’ve been really pleased with the response since we started stocking Cards from Africa, so it’s great to see that they feature on Oprah’s Love That list in this month’s O magazine.
It’s a great cause, but the cards are beautiful too, so it makes supporting the project very easy for Global Fayre and our customers.
The cards are handcrafted in Rwanda by orphaned young people who have lost their parents to the 1994 genocide or diseases like aids. The project allows these young people to break the cycle of poverty, earning over $6 per day, compared to the usual rate of around $1 per day. This means they can provide food, shelter, health care and education for their younger siblings.
I got an email today from Paul Katzeff at Thanksgiving Coffee, telling me that they have been featured in a new book by Kevin T Jackson.
In Building Reputational Capital, Kevin T. Jackson offers a practical guide to taking
the high road–the only path that leads to lasting success.
Based on extensive research and real-world experience, Building Reputational Capital reveals basic principles of integrity and fairness with which firms can build an enduring reputation.
The book profiles a range of real-life success stories–from giants like Hewlett-Packard to small firms like Thanksgiving Coffee Company (where we get our Delicious Peace Coffee Fair Trade coffee)
You can read more about the book here.
We buy some great bags from Ellen at Three Stone Steps. Earlier this year Ellen wrote about us on her blog
