Giving Thanks........{La Tienda}

Many of you know that I LOVE La Tienda! I love their jewellery and I love the story behind it. For those of you who may not have heard of La Tienda it is a fair trade art co-op serving a group of women in the Dominican Republic, they make beautiful handmade items to sell in order to provide for their families. There are about 30 Haitian and Dominican woman working together where all the income is shared within the group.

With it being so close to Thanksgiving I want to give back and how I am going to do that is by baking cookies.....okay there is a little more to it than that so keep reading.  I plan of baking cookies and donating the profits to the women of La Tienda. 

So this is how you need to go about ordering.....
*Email me at
*Be sure to include in the email your full name, phone number and amount of Chocolste chip cookies you would like to purchase......they aree selling by the half dozen for $8.00
*Once I receive your email I will send you the address for pickup

Pick up for the cookies will be on October 14th in Orangeville between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.  We will also have La Tienda jewellery displayed so when you pick up your treats you can pick up a lovely piece of art to wear proud.  I am really looking forward to seeing the impact that we can make in these women's lives so please open your hearts and help make a difference.
