the WORLDby how you
Ten Thousand Villages started 65 years ago with the Mennonite Central Committee to "provide sustainable economic opportunities for artisans in developing countries by creating a viable marketplace for their products in North America." They have an extensive clearance section. (And, if you sign up for their e-mail list, they also offer frequent sales and percent off clearance deals. :)
Partners for Just Trade is a "non-profit, faith-based organization that builds partnerships between producers living in extreme poverty and consumers in North America." They offer a sale page which includes everything from winter wear to indoor and outdoor home decor to jewelry and purses to stuffed animals.
Three Cords Haiti (inspired by Ecclesiastes 4:9-12) vision is "to bring life transformation through an artisan business that focuses on employing Haitians with disabilities, as well as at-risk women." They sew beautiful totes and bags and they offer some on their sale page. (Also follow them on Facebook to find out about online sale events.)
If you clicked on this link, you probably (like most Americans!) are attracted to a deal. But you are also probably like me and trying to stretch your budget to make ends meet. (Note: If your budget is tight, you may find ethical shopping online difficult due to shipping costs. Check out our list of Retail Locations. Or combine with some like-minded friends for a large order that qualifies for free shipping and then have fun getting together to deliver their products :) Below are links to the clearance and sale pages for the organizations listed on this site. But don't worry. This time there is no need to feel guilty for buying cheap--all the artisans have already been paid in full! (Also check out Love Justly which offers last season's discounted ethical merchandise from many great organizations!)
