Fair Trade Holiday Sale

10:00 am to 05:00 pm
Indiana Memorial Union (State Room East)

Bringing artisan-crafted items from more than 40 countries and supporting the newly launched FairTuesday ethical shopping initiative, the ninth annual Fair Trade Holiday Sale will be in the State Room East at the Indiana Memorial Union on Dec. 3 – 4, 10 am to 5 pm. Brought to campus by the entrepreneurial student group, Enactus IUB, and Fair Trade Bloomington, the two-day holiday sale is open to the public and is Bloomington’s largest fair trade event that empowers visitors to support sustainable global development and directly transform communities with each purchase.

Fair trade items and gifts available at the sale include handmade jewelry, holiday ornaments, chocolate, baskets, woolens, textiles, bags and purses, and features local artwork from the Stone Belt Arts Program. Ten Thousand Villages, Imani, Global Mamas, and Minga Fair Trade Imports are among the many brands offered. Enactus IUB travels to Ecuador with Minga, volunteering in Fair Trade product development.

An Important Message from Bloom Magazine

For the past 14 years, we have been publishing Bloom, a free, bimonthly cultural and lifestyle magazine serving Bloomington, Indiana, and surrounding communities. We have four missions: to support local businesses, local charities, local arts, and diversity. We are an integral part of the fabric of this community.

Like so many small businesses (4 employees), we are facing huge challenges in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to be able to continue producing the magazine and our website, magbloom.com, but we need your help.
