Global Village Collection (GVC) is a fair trade, non-profit, volunteer-supported retail store featuring coffee, tea, chocolate and unique handmade items from around the world. They are inviting the general public to come and help in their celebration. It kicks off October 4, which is also the monthly installment of Delaware’s First Friday event. Throughout the month, GVC will showcase a different region of the world each week.
Handcrafted items are made by men and women overcoming poverty, domestic violence or human trafficking. Tea, coffee and food items are produced by farmers who are paid fairly and utilize safe and sustainable environmental practices. There are clothing items for everyone, from baby clothes to men’s ties and women’s dresses. Also in their product assortment are children’s toys and a wide variety of household décor.
