Global Hands Fair Trade opened in May 2007. Pam Ellis, owner, wanted to share her love of Fair Trade with the community. Her daughter, Lindsay, also a Fair Trade enthusiast, has worked with her helping to run the shop. Pam and Lindsay love that each handmade item in their shop has a story to tell about the farmer or artisan who created it. Customers say when they shop at Global Hands, they feel like conscious consumers and that feels good.
