While you're here, check out our African baskets. We just got a shipment in this afternoon, so inventory is at its peak. We also have IWAKO erasers and other cool things for the kids. And as always, we have plenty of clothing, handmade soaps and sea salt scrub bars, African jewelry, and much more!

One of our internet customers purchased two African straw hats from us, and was kind enough to send these pictures of the hat they were replacing. Now that is a well loved hat! It also looks quite a bit like the West African straw hats we carry, which are made in Burkina Faso. I love getting the background story from customers, especially when we're able to help with a hard to find item. I hope the new hats provide as many good years as the old one did.

The maples and elms here in Port Gamble are turning vivid shades of red and gold, and the town is gearing up for a full slate of paranormal-themed events this month. We have a nice assortment of African baskets with orange, rust, and gold hues that make perfect fall accessories. Small Bolga baskets are ideal for either gathering or dispersing Halloween candy (the small market baskets and small and medium flower baskets in particular.) We have Tanzania and Ghana fruit baskets that would look lovely at a Thanksgiving dinner, and plenty of other sizes and shapes in seasonal colors.
Prepare for the cold with our merino wool shawls from India and our hats and gloves from Nepal. We have them in kid's sizes as well as adults.
We're open seven days a week, 10am-5pm, except major holidays. If course, you can shop online anytime, and we offer free shipping for orders over $100 throughout the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii.
Happy fall to all!
