Coronavirus precautionary closure

Dear Loyal Customers
Thank you so much for your support over the years – completely brilliant!
Sadly, due to the Coronavirus we think it’s best for us to close – hopefully just for the time being.

We’re not sure at the moment if we’ll be able to continue or not so there are a couple of options
if you’d still like to buy anything (it would be really helpful if you do):

If you can see something in the shop window you’d like to buy,
then call me on 07401 593574 and I can come down, open the shop and let you in.
We have some things on this website in our online shop

Thanks so much, keep well and try to keep your spirits up. Love and best wishes Barb

About our Brighton Marina Fair Trade Shop

Up your end a bit, Jim…
So many thanks to the dozen or so friends who all turned up on the day to help us move
on Monday 7 July 2017. It was much appreciated. So big thanks to Brian & Arthur, Joani, Julia & Julia, Lillo, Lily, Mitzi, Suze, Tamsin, Tone.
This website offers many of our most popular items but our Brighton Marina shop stocks the full Lovethatstuff range plus more from several other fair trade buyers.

Over 30 producer groups in 27 countries are represented, supporting: HIV/AIDS orphans; deaf children; disabled producers; indigenous South Americans; street children; Tibetan refugee children in India; widows; and victims of human trafficking, landmines and torture.

Many of the producer groups particularly focus on supporting women, some employing over 95%.
