Haitian arts and crafts…
Those of us who have traveled to Haiti over the years are continually impressed by the abundance and variety (and low price!) of the artwork and craft items we find for sale. Wouldn’t it be great to share that creativity with our friends and help Haitian citizens earn a living in the process?
In an attempt to help bolster the Haitian economy – to paraphrase our slogan, “one craft at a time” – we thought it would be a good idea to try to create a small market for Haitian products like these. Admittedly, it’s a minuscule step, but it’s a step.
We’d like to hear from you. Do you know of any local stores or other outlets where we could sell some of these items? If so, please contact us. Since we travel to Haiti quite often, it would be easy to bring things back for sale.
Here is a very small sample of the kinds of things we could sell: (Click on a picture to see the full image.)
