Sonoma: Baksheesh Fair Trade; things to do

Wine Country

Baksheesh Fair Trade 423 First St. West, (707) 939-2847. M-Sat 10-6, Sun 12-6.
This unusual shop strives to trade “fairly with artisans in the developing world and the U.S.” The goods are reminiscent of what you see in souvenir shops as you travel the globe. I saw familiar neck scarves like some I bought recently in Thailand and Egypt, but also saw some lovely print tablecloths from India and elephant dung greeting cards from Sri Lanka, where I’ve never traveled.

More things to do in Sonoma.

More things to do in the Wine Country.

More ideas for exploring Northern California.
