Now that Peacecraft is Closed...Here is an Option

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the closing of Peacecraft after nearly a quarter of a century.  Later we mentioned how it would affect a group of artisans that had been selling their products at the fair trade store. That space is now occupied by the Maple Street Dance Space.

It's possible that another fair-trade store will fill the void in Albuquerque.
In the meantime, we can purchase Fair Trade coffee, chocolate, sugar and other fair-trade foods at retailers like La Montanita, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods).  And some fair-trade crafts are available online.

Still, it would be nice to have a fair-trade store in town, wouldn't it? 

But WE DO have a fair trade store in the vicinity.

Just take the Rail Runner in the northerly direction or drive about 60 miles north on I-25 to...Ten Thousand Villages in Santa Fe. 

The store is located at 219 Galisteo St. (and is walking distance from the Plaza). The hours are 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m, Monday through Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays.  Happy Fair Trade Shopping!
