The Global Shoppe was formed to use everyday commerce in Northwest Arkansas as a means of enhancing the physical and spiritual wellbeing of people in underdeveloped communities throughout the world. The Global Shoppe operates in the spirit of fair trade, seeking to make a positive difference in the lives of the artisans with whom we work by purchasing their products for a fair price and providing market access for their products in the US, as well as working with other like-minded people and organizations.
We take our charter and tag line from Isaiah chapter 61 which states,
“He sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives… and to bestow upon them a crown of beauty instead of ashes.”
We believe that our business can be a powerful, redemptive force in the lives of the artisans with whom we work.
Come check us out! We are nestled inside Mama Carmen’s Espresso Café, at 2850 N. College Avenue in Fayetteville, and offer products from a host of countries and cultures. Our products are handmade and have a story attached to them stating where the product is from and who is benefiting from your purchase. Your partnership with us at The Global Shoppe directly helps the poor in places like Nepal, Uganda, Honduras and India. Join us in becoming part of their story.
