This fall, some members of Karis pulled together a vision to open a fair-trade store in downtown Columbia. It's called the Mustard Seed. They buy products from around the world, ensuring you that they are buying them for fair prices, so that the workers, not big corporations, get the profits. They have lots of great gift ideas in the shop. Stop by on Ninth Street, right near Kaldi's and Sparky's, this holiday season. If you're going to get Christmas gifts, why not get some that will benefit those less fortunate than us?
