Someone mentioned "A thousand Villages" in the Around the House forum. Are there others you've bought from and like?

Isn't the World Market fair trade? We have a couple in MN that I love to go to.

I've never heard of a Thousand Villages, but I know the Ten Thousand Villages stores pretty well. They also have a website where you can do some shopping.
Also, I'd be really surprised if World Market is fair trade since their prices are so low. (I'd love to find out their stuff is fairly traded, however!)
Global Exchange is another good one.
And I think there's a division of National Geographic that sells fair trade gifts. OK, just searched...it's www.novica.com.
