Where to Buy Fair Trade Ornaments & Christmas Decor
For many of us, the pandemic necessitates major adjustments to our Holiday plans. While Daniel and I will be able to see some family after extensive planning and quarantining (and plans for outdoor meeting), others will not be able to see family or friends at all. This year has taken a substantial toll for many reasons, but one of them is the loss of access to loved ones, and the ability to participate in traditional holiday and seasonal activities.
While we may not have as many opportunities for joy, there’s still an opportunity to deck the halls in our own little apartments and houses across the country. Live Christmas tree sales are up, which indicates that many are choosing to decorate more or differently this year. With that in mind, I wanted to re-share some of my favorite places to buy fair trade ornaments and Holiday decor, and also specifically share my very favorite ornaments from Ten Thousand Villages.
In 2012, when Daniel and I moved out of our home state of Florida, we took a trip to Ten Thousand Villages and invested in a tree-full of ornaments to bedeck our little tabletop tree. While it felt like an expensive decision on our college budget, it turned out to be a great decision. We cherish them and use them every year.
