Underwear going fast!

Our Good & Fair underwear is going fast!  We are have only 2 pairs left in stock. The price is awesome and really a comfy pair of underwear. I like the low cut boy style shorts style.  Fair trade organic cotton! You can’t beat that price. Our last Starbucks pop-up was a lot of fun and now I’m busy trying to figure out how to fair trade Hallowe’en for the kiddos. I am taking inspiration from my cousins and dressing up the kids on a well treasured book Pax likes us to read.

The costumes are fairly simple and yet not.  I’m making the costumes instead of buying so I just went to the fabric shop and bought the fabric. I couldn’t find the right fabric for Pax’s  costume so I have to search online. I can’t wait to share it all with you once I have all the pieces put together.

Hope you are having a happy Monday! The weekend passes by way to fast for us and we didn’t even do much –I tried to catch up on sleep but it wasn’t working with two kids under the weather.

 

 

Pop-up market at Starbucks HQ

We’re at Starbucks HQ tomorrow from 11-1pm.  It’s a really fun outdoor event that happens rain or shine.  We have loved doing this event at Starbucks because the fellow vendors are fun, have lovely products and there is always yummy food and music to boot. Now all the great Starbucks fall drinks are in season and I’m loving the Evolution juice drinks they have partnered up with.

People either love their Starbucks or just avoid it all together.  I think Starbucks has done a great job of brining fair trade coffee to North American public to light.  The other cool thing is that a lot of Pax’s favourite parks/playgrounds has been made possible by the Starbucks foundation so we are really thankful for that.

If you are in the Seattle SODO (south of downtown) area, come by Starbucks headquarters and do a little early Christmas shopping, eat some really yummy quinoa salad and grab yourself that famous pumpkin spice latte. I’m going to have special discounts just for the event!

 

Reduce, re-use and organic! Sweet.

Look at the cute baby! Now draw your eyes towards the re-usable organic GOTS certified organic cotton grocery bag and get one for yourself! It’s a super super deal at $6.99.   It’s very sturdy with a thick canvas cotton.  I often use it to carry all of Pax’s library books so it can carry a lot of weight without breaking.  I like the side pocket where you can carry a water bottle or small umbrella (since it rains so much here in Seattle).

It has our slogan on one side “You help the artisan, who makes the product which delights you” and our lil’soak print on the other side. These products are ethically and made with fair trade practices. Free shipping if you order from us but you can also get it at Ebay and Amazon.

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend.  Our Paxter got to bowl for the first time and let me say — he’s not a big fan of those bowling shoes but he got an angry bird tattoo and life was good again.

 

 

Pop-up shop tonight in West Seattle!

We have been having a blast doing the Starbucks outdoor summer events and meeting other friendly handcrafted neighbours like Wooden Clothespin. They are a handmade business using recycled fabrics and fun modern prints for coffee/tea cozies, quilts, bags and more. I have gotten a few mason jar drink containers with glass straws, cozies etc and I love it. I use it all the time.  I’m big time in using glass for our entire family.  Stuff just tastes better in it.
