The months are coming so quickly I did not realize I was two months behind in posting my Fair Trade Friday boxes.
April arrived in a pretty pink box with a large identifying sticker. And it raises the question who makes your clothes?
We can change the world by purchasing from retailers who care about the people who work for them.
Very pretty light pink tassel bead necklace.
And this has become one of my favorite items from Fair Trade Friday. This lightweight navy kimono is quickly becoming a wardrobe staple. I wore it in the spring when the weather was not quite warm enough. And now I wear it often in the office where the air conditioning makes me cold during the day.

I love the light pink tassel necklace. Very fun for summer.
And this navy and white kimono will be great for cool summer nights.

January starts off a new year of Fair Trade Friday packages for me.
I was eagerly awaiting my Fair Trade Friday December box this year and a little worried when the postal service tracking showed it in transit for several days. On Tuesday afternoon my little box arrived.
Yup, this month it was a box.
You know I love my monthly Fair Trade Friday box mailer. This month it was box instead of a package.
Today May 16th is designated as a day of giving. Mercy House Global has teamed up with several organizations who work together to give women a brighter future.
“She Is Priceless” is a campaign to make a difference in the lives of oppressed women.
A pearl is a healed wound. An oyster protects itself from irritation and suffering and the result is a priceless pearl. The women we support have endured unthinkable suffering in their lives and often feel forgotten. We are joining together to remind the world that every woman matters.

I have been a subscriber since day one of the Fair Trade Friday monthly box. I love getting mail that is not all bills but also contains items that make our world a better place. Beyond the monthly box Fair Trade Friday also offers a bracelet of the month club and an earring of the month club.
In February I also purchased the earring of the month for February. I wanted to see what they offered and I was not disappointed!
I think I need to purchase a larger mailbox. Took me a little wiggling to get my Fair Trade Friday package out of my box.
This package felt very solid so I was curious what items I had this month.
Yesterday the mail box held good things. Lately its been full of college information, bills and magazines. This time there was only one college brochure, one magazine and my Fair Trade Friday package.
My first item is a taco cord keeper. This will be so handy when I travel! Between chargers and headphones I usually have some sort of mess brewing in my bag.
