Global Village Gifts is a not-for-profit retail store featuring fairly traded handcrafts produced by artisans and farmers around the world. Our mission is two-fold: We educate the local public on the principles of Fair Trade, and we support artisans through the employment opportunities offered by Fair Trade.
Global Village Gifts is the only Fair Trade certified store in the state of Utah.
The reason Global Village Gifts can buy products at a fair price for the artisans, yet sell them at an affordable price for customers, is because the store is operated by volunteers, whose age ranges from 16-76. The volunteers interact with customers on the sales floor, display new merchandise, order inventory, and teach the community about fair trade. Our mission would be impossible without these hard-working individuals who give their time and talents to support the Fair Trade mission. If you are interested in contributing as a volunteer, visit our webpage.
Hours: Monday-Saturday 12pm-6pm
