Shop the World This Christmas

My Chappell  loved this cute frog cap so much that
 Katleen bought it and she wore it out of the store!
Looking for unusual handcrafted gifts this Christmas?  Well Soujourns in downtown Birmingham is the place you need to shop.  Owner Melissa Kendrick opened this unique store in 2005, and is committed to supporting the fair trade movement.  Every item in this shop is created by artisans that receive a fair wage for their handcrafted goods.  I visited her new location on 3rd Avenue recently with four of my grandchildren and we had to drag them out of there.  It's full to the brim with art and colorful, well made items from around the world. What could be a better place to spend your Christmas dollars this year?

A first glance at the thumbnail made me think it was some kind of military decoration. It must have the powers of a magic charm.
