The Bridge is now carrying Vietnamese pottery from Global Crafts. All of the pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe and lead free in clay, paint, and glaze. We have a variety of plates, serving ware, bowls, and mugs. This everyday hard dishware is
perfect for spring!

A few of us from The Bridge ventured to Chicago last weekend to take part in the "Living and Giving" market in Merchandise Mart. We were able to connect with fair trade companies that we already purchase from, and made new contacts. There are exciting new things on the way!

Some of my personal favorites come from Malia Designs, a company based out of Chicago that purchases items from artisans in Southeast Asia.
This organization employs people that are disadvantaged and donates a portion of their profits to organizations that are working to stop human trafficking.
