Fair trade holiday shopping guide

This page in:

The day after Thanksgiving is traditionally, if incorrectly, thought of as the busiest shopping day of the year in the US. For those of us still in a food coma, it's nice to do the shopping from the couch. Thanks to my fabulous intern Kristina, who took a break from infrastructure regulation to find the excellent sites below, we present ten ways to buy fair trade and/or support artists worldwide:

  • Novica - an online arts agent for more than 1,700 artists around the world. Check out the impressive collection of chess sets.
  • World of Good - affordably priced bags, house wares, jewelry, more.
  • Ganesha - home furnishings and accessories from India. Don't blame me if you spend an hour wandering around this fantastically diverse marketplace. Make sure to visit the Bollywood section.
