If you haven’t had a chance to stop into Fair and Square Imports in downtown McKinney yet, don’t waste any more time.This fun shop offers beautiful and whimsical home decor and apparel with a global feel.
The global feel comes from…around the globe. That’s because Fair and Square is a Fair Trade shop, importing their goods from the artisans who create it all around the world. According to the Fair and Square website, “Fair Trade seeks to use the free-market, global trade, and entrepreneurship to actively provide opportunity to many around the world.” Here’s a little video about what Fair Trade means to artisans and producers globally.
The artisans who create the beautiful merchandise at Fair and Square are able to enjoy safe working conditions, honest and long-term relationships, fair and prompt payment for their work, and many other benefits. In the back of the shop and on the Fair and Square website, you can find out about the craftspeople and artisans whose products are featured at Fair and Square.
Here’s a little look at some of the great things they create and McKinney residents Andrew and Kate Jones bring to us right here in our historic downtown.
