Connected Goods, strives to bring innovative, well designed Fair Trade products and a unique human experience. While shopping at Connected you will not only support the artisan that made the product, but will also connect into a small piece of their life story.  They focus on each artisan’s life experience as it relates to their creation.

While they source primarily from companies that are members of Fair Trade Federation and World Fair Trade Organization, there are a few exceptions. For these companies they research their practices to understand how they apply Fair Trade principles, and to ensure that they are adhering to Fair Trade values.

Connected is a different type of consumer experience. It is our goal to enhance the act of consumption by creating an interactive, meaningful experience between you and the artisan.

The people are, and always will be the inspiration throughout our endeavors.

I loved looking through the site finding unique and find products that I would love.  They have super cute toys for babies and children of all ages.  You can then jump over and get something pretty for mom, whether it be jewelry or a cute top.

Look at this cute zig zag bag…I would love to carry this around.  Reminds me of the ever so trendy Chevron pattern you see now.

I love being able to tell you all about shops I have never heard of, this is one of them.  They have so many fun and unique items.  You are bound to find something.
