A Few of Our Favorite Things: April 2019

Ten Thousand Villages


Shop for treasures and a cause. Ten Thousand Villages in Bluffton was the first fair trade store to open in the U.S. Every item is handcrafted in another country by makers who earn a fair, living wage and have safe working conditions. We love the shop’s collection of brass jewelry created by artisans in Cambodia from the bomb casings left over from decades of war. The Khmer word for “peace” is carved into the earrings pictured here.

JK Juices

JK Juices is owned by two sisters who specialize in cold pressed, organic, unpasteurized juice drinks. The shop’s specialties for this spring are celery juice and Snap. Celery juice, naturally infused with beneficial minerals, is the latest rage among the health conscious. You get the best benefit if you consume it in the morning on an empty stomach. Snap is made from apple, lemon and ginger and tastes like a “lemon drop.”
