Spring Fair Trade Store at FV United Methodist Church on April 24 and 25

Cycle of Fair TradeCome on out for the Spring Fair Trade Store on April 24th and 25th at Fuquay-Varina United Methodist Church. Doors will be open from 8am to 8pm.

Our spring Fair Trade Store, featuring items made by artisans around the world, is coming on April 24-25. Proceeds from the store will be donated to the Interfaith Food Shuttle (foodshuttle.org), a hunger-relief organization serving seven counties in and around the Triangle.

Featuring a variety of handmade creations including birdhouses, baskets, jewelry, spring clothing, books, planters, and garden, come find a unique gift for an upcoming wedding, graduation or Mother‘s Day!

Because the items are fairly-traded, you know that the people who created your purchases received a fair, living wage in safe working conditions. Fair trade is an economic system that is supported by the Social Principles of The United Methodist Church. Sustainable practices are encouraged, artisans have access to financial training, and they develop long-range trading relationships with buyers.

All proceeds from the store will be donated to the Interfaith Food Shuttle.

The Spring Fair Trade event is made possible by the wonderful volunteers who run the fair.

Visit Fuquay-Varina United Methodist Church at 100 South Judd Parkway SE in Fuquay-Varina, NC.
