Promoting Fair Trade

Our merchandise is purchased from artisans, crafters, and importers who support our goal of promoting fair trade, and Shop The World was the first fair-trade-only store in Princeton. We moved our store here from Belize. In all, we've been in business for more than 26 years. Locals and tourists alike love visiting our store on Spring Street.
