It’s November 1st, and that means that Halloween candy is half off and stores are suddenly flooded with tinsel and twinkly lights. Somehow the holiday season has crept up on us again!

Think of all the shopping you’ll do over the next two months: What if every single purchase you made empowered someone to change their life for the better? Imagine the ripple effect that would have on the world.

That’s why we call this time of year our Season of Impact.

The resonance of shopping fair trade is amplified during a time of year when we’re sliding our credit cards so frequently. We encourage you to think globally as you buy for your loved ones. When they learn that the significance of their gift extends far beyond their own hands, they will be even more grateful.

The Season of Impact is especially exciting for our Fair Trade Partners. When a team of Fair Trade Partners was in Guatemala in September, our Artisan Partners kept asking them to “sell more jewelry.” Now is their chance! Our Fair Trade Partners have been busy teaming up with their friends to spread the word to shop with heart.

We want to empower them as much as we can, so later this week, we’ll share some super easy tips on hosting fun and festive parties. The best part? These tips don’t just apply to Threads Showcases! We’ll share ideas for mouthwateringly simple snacks, dazzlingly doable photo backdrops, and elegantly effortless decorations. We’ve even curated a holiday party playlist (we dare you to listen and not dance).

When we’re done with you, you’ll be ready to throw the best — and easiest — holiday party around!

Seasons Greetings!
