Life was unstable for Christine Dusabemariya (weaver from Muramba, Rwanda) before weaving baskets. With income from weaving with a SERRV partner, Christine can now pay for her family’s basic needs, has purchased some land for family farming, and is saving for the future.
The Fair Trade Shop, at Stone Presbyterian Church, 8 So. Park Row, Clinton offers a large selection of baskets, exquisite jewelry, ornaments, nativities, collectibles, wood items, chocolate and food items, clothing and toys from 38 different countries.
We support the mission projects of Stone Church, which have included the Parkinson’s Unit of the Presbyterian Home and Habitat for Humanity.
This holiday season our Fair Trade Shop anticipates contributing to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance for hurricane relief and the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees.
Purchasing fair trade items ensures artisans and small farmers fair wages and healthy working conditions, providing dignity, sustainable development and hope for marginalized people.
Our hours are 10 am to 6:30 pm every Thursday, 10 am to 4 pm second Saturdays and 10 am to 4 pm each Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Also, stop in and shop with us during the Village’s Shopper’s Stroll on Friday, November 24th. For more information, contact Lauralyn Kolb, email@example.com, 315-725-1326, visit our website at www.stonepres.org or like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/stonepres.
