Our store is completely staffed by committed volunteers who have a passion for promoting fair trade. We love for new faces to join our team! If you enjoy assisting customers and sharing about the craft items and where they originate from, we have open shifts for Sales Associates. These volunteers work 4-hour shifts and commit to 2 shifts per month. Training is provided. Basically, you will be in charge of opening or closing the store, assisting customers, telling our story, ringing up purchases, handling cash and credit card transactions, and taking special orders, when requested. It's always a fun day and you'll get 20% discount on all purchases on the day you volunteer.
