Join La Mesa Fair Trade and Fair Trade San Diego to celebrate a first anniversary for 
Fair Trade Decor in Del Mar! 

 

Special guests include authors: Alepho Deng (They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky) and Jeff Salz (The Way of Adventure, Transforming Your Life and Work with Spirit and Vision), Sarah Emerson (Women Empowered Initiative, PCI), Sandra Martinez (Foundation for Women) and local Fair Trade leaders.

Since opening the store last year, Fair Trade Décor has been accepted to the Fair Trade Federation, www.fairtradefederation.org.   The family-run business has brought handmade furnishings and gifts from more than 40 countries to Del Mar, while following globally accepted principles of Fair Trade, including fair living wages, safe working conditions, environmental sustainability and cultural respect. 

Owner, Betsy Paganelli, noted, “As the first 100% Fair Trade store in San Diego County, we have sought to give back to the community as a site for cultural events, including a family friendly drum circle, international dance lessons, live music and now storytelling and booksigning.”
