Freeset Love in Winterpeg

In the last few months  we have been so impressed to find a huge amount of Fair Trade love and awareness building over the last few years in the great province of Manitoba. (We are little bias as it used to be where we called home) Finding the Fair Trade Manitoba website a couple months back gave us warm fuzz-ies inside. Take a look - www.fairtrademanitoba.ca

So, it's with all those lovely warm feelings inside that we announce a new location to get your hands on Freeset bags... Hold onto your hats Winterpegers and head over to say hi to the crew at Brave New World and pick up a lovely bag sewn by one of the Freeset Ladies.

Here are the details! 

Brave New World
141 Sherbrook Street
Winnipeg, Manitoba
