[Joining Nearby Registry] is a great opportunity for us to reach more socially conscious consumers in Seattle, who want to make a connection to the products that they choose for their homes, families, and friends.

Fair Trade Winds announces the launch of their online storefront on nearbyregistry.com, a unique online gift registry shopping experience in Seattle. The registry is designed to provide a convenient way for engaged couples, expectant parents, and many others planning special events to request and receive gifts from their favorite local independent businesses.

"We are excited to partner with Nearby Registry, to offer ethically-sourced products that appeal to those who would like an alternative to traditional store registries," said Paul Culler, co-founder of Fair Trade Winds. "This is a great opportunity for us to reach more socially-conscious consumers in Seattle who want to make a connection to the products that they choose for their homes, families, and friends," he explained. Designed to serve communities across the country, Seattle is the second market to launch on Nearby Registry. The Fair Trade Winds registry on Nearby can be found at nearbyregistry.com/fairtradewinds.

Fair Trade Winds offers unique registry ideas for any occasion--weddings, new babies, adoptions, religious celebrations, birthdays, housewarmings, anniversaries, graduations, and other milestones.

All of Fair Trade Winds' products are handmade, fairly traded and often made from sustainable, recycled and re-purposed materials. Their featured products include handmade toys and baby accessories, lamps, decor and wall art, sustainable photo albums and frames, and a variety of housewares such as kitchen and dining accessories, hand blocked table linens, and recycled glassware.

Fair Trade Winds seeks to empower customers to become an integral part of a global, cooperative effort to benefit artisans, farmers, and the environment. Fair Trade ensures that craftspeople and farmers work in safe and empowering conditions, that there is no child labor, and the artisans are encouraged to invest time and money into their talents, land, families, and communities.

In 2007, Lois and Paul Culler founded Fair Trade Winds in Bar Harbor, ME. Since then they have opened stores in Fairfax, VA, Stony Brook, NY, Seattle, WA, Springfield, OH, and Jamestown, RI.
