Where I Work

So maybe by now you're curious about where I work. And why I travel so frequently. And maybe I want to tell you because it's getting nearer to the holidays, time to do some fair trade, socially responsible holiday shopping. I work here. From where I am in our Maryland office, next to our customer service department, I can hear them on the phone, taking orders.

Meanwhile, it's another day of driving and flying for me, and to my great relief, my passport is now on my desk in my office. Phew!

Did I mention I'm also going to Nepal?

What an awesome job!! Do you need a traveling partner? Or a baggage handler? Or maybe a food tester? You never know what that goat meat might be spiked with. ;)

I love this for gift giving. I always enjoy giving things that aren't run of the mill and this is full of those! Thanks and keep up the good work.

We have some shops around here called 10,000 villages (not maniacs) is there any connection?

It's a great shop too.

Meno: Some Ten Thousand Villages stores buy from us, and they do the same type of work we do, so we keep in touch with them.

Thanks for the support all! You're great!!

I DID wonder what job allowed you to travel so extensively. What a great job to have - travel for the greater good, so to speak.

Please take tons of pictures in Nepal -what views and beutiful buildings! Our company hired a speaker that had climbed Everest and told fascinating stories about the culture and people of Nepal, especially their generosity.
