Two weeks ago, I attended a Traidcraft Roadshow in Andover with my friend Tricia. Tricia has been promoting Traidcraft for many years, especially in the Eastleigh and Chandler’s Ford area in the southeast of England, and she didn’t mind me being a tag along, on a glorious summer day.
We previewed new items for the new season to be marketed from August. We tasted new chocolate too — but chocolate-tasting will be in another post.
I love the beautiful handmade glitzy items, such as pens, notebooks and mirrors. These gifts are delicately made by real people with fine skills and a bit of patience.
Interestingly, many items we previewed were purple, which is perfect for this week’s Photo Challenge.
These are ideal gifts, especially when Christmas is not far away. Some of the stationery and accessories are pocket money gifts, which kids could afford too.
I hope you can also support Traidcraft – Fighting poverty through trade. Here are some of the gorgeous purple gifts from Traidcraft. You can buy them online or contact me for more information.
