Sadly, Traidcraft have informed us that in the current difficult economic climate and because of recent poor trading figures they could be forced to cease trading on 31st December 2018 unless a solution can be found in the coming month. They tell us that it is vitally important to have a very good autumn season if they are to continue and have appealed for people to buy as much as possible from Traidcraft and perhaps to also buy some of their Christmas cards and Advent calendars. If they cease trading, it will obviously be devastating for their third world producers and all the Traidcraft staff in Gateshead who will be made redundant.
So, please consider buying items over the next couple of months as we have lots of stock.
Our next general sale will be on the weekend of 3/4 November, and Advent Calenders and cards are now available each weekend.
Since 2004, we have turned over £21,000!
