Blog: Fair Trade Matters

This holiday season, as you choose meaningful gifts for your loved ones, please consider how your gift can also have a positive impact on the lives of the people who are sharing their craft and skills with you. At Quarter Moon, we have made a commitment to searching for fair trade products, continually increasing our fair trade offerings and educating the community about the principles of fair trade and why it matters.

This year 100% of our ornaments are Fair Trade. They range from paper craft to cloth to metal work, but all are beautiful and all are contributing to the empowerment of artisans and communities across the planet. Please check with our staff to be directed to other fair trade items. We are currently working with over 20 Fair Trade companies and have jewelry, purses, crafts, scarves, hats, socks and much more to show you.

Here is a description of fair trade principles and just a few pics of our fair trade ornaments and a few fair trade gift ideas. Holiday giving is fun and can have a big impact on the lives of both the gift maker and the receiver!



About Quarter Moon Imports

Quarter Moon Imports is a little clothing, jewelry & gift shop located in a 1940's stone cottage at Lake Ella in Tallahassee Florida. We've been here since 1989. Our shop is an eclectic mix of goods with a decidedly bohemian flair. Many of our gifts and jewelry are fair trade products. We also carry eco- friendly products and locally crafted soaps and gifts. We like being part of the local business community and especially love being at Lake Ella along with Black Dog Cafe, Joe's Bike Shop, Remember When Vintage, Glasswork by Susan, Panhandler's Kitchen Supply, Mickey's Lakeside Cafe and the rest. Our greatest hope is that you find us to be a friendly and welcoming place in the community. At the end of the day, that's what really matters.
