I check out of the library business books shelved in the 658s. At the end of Story Dash the author recommended readers check out Thistle Farms.
Located in Nashville, TN in America the non-profit was founded to give women survivors of human trafficking and addiction housing and employment.
There’s a free 2-year residence for recovery in Nashville. Thistle Farms also sells goods that women around the world handcraft.
The home decor and apparel and jewelry items are sold on the Thistle Farms website. I’ll link to Thistle Farms at the end of this blog entry.
There you can buy a beaded bracelet as cheap as $10. I have my eye on a welcome mat that refugees craft in Greece using strips from their life jackets.
A great find is a black leather tote bag for $99. It’s the kind of pocketbook that stands out. Why order a handbag from Nordstrom online when it will be a mass-produced item that everyone will be carrying everywhere.
The goods sold on the Thistle Farms website give fair trade employment to women living in countries throughout the world.
There are so many great finds on the website that I might break my vow not to spend money. I’m tempted to throw caution to the wind and buy something to support Thistle Farms.
Check out Thistle Farms today.
