The occasional Fairtrade and Palestinian shop in Glasgow

 

Fair trade in Scotland – Where’s it at? Where’s it going? This month we’ll be particularly celebrating the advent of Fairtrade Fortnight by featuring a short input from Martin Rhodes of the Scottish Fair Trade Forum @ 11.30am.

Otherwise, and as usual, if you are …

  • interested in buying food and crafts in support of fair trade, justice and – in particular – Palestinian farmers and craftworkers?
  • wanting to find unique gifts and show practical solidarity with oppressed people?
  • keen to source ethical brands of products that you use regularly, but are not widely or often available in shops you frequent?

Our wee Pop-Up Shop could be the answer to your shopping dilemmas!

Since November 2018, weeWONDERBOX and Hadeel have been collaborating to regularly offer this opportunity to source unique, hard-to-get, ethical products in central Glasgow, both in occasional pop-up shop form and also through the possibility of pick-ups of pre-ordered products at the Iona Community’s Glasgow base.

Today will feature the pop-up shop, with plenty of time to browse, plus a short presentation … and of course, refreshments.

  • Olive Oil: Conventional Extra Virgin – 250ml and 500ml

Crafts

On display on the day, we’ll also have a selection drawn from Hadeel’s stock (to see the full range held in Edinburgh, click on the category links below).

 

Ordering & Pick-up

You can pre-order food or craft items for pick-up at the Pop-Up Shop; or at another time from the Iona Community Base in Carlton Court.

We hold a stock of the foods (see list above) at Carlton Court.

Crafts are held at Hadeel’s shop in Edinburgh and brought through for each Pop-Up Shop. You can browse crafts by visiting the links above (or via the Hadeel homepage) and if you wish a particular item(s), in a particular size, design or colour, you can pre-order this by contacting us at [email protected] or 0141 429 7281.

Thus, we can arrange for it to be brought through to Glasgow. It will then be available for pick-up at the Pop-Up Shop; or we can arrange a suitable pick-up time at the Iona Community Base on another day. Products can be paid for at the time of pick-up.

 

About Hadeel

  • Hadeel is a Fair Trade shop which aims to provide a sustainable income and support for Palestinian artisans, farmers and others working in Fair Trade organisations and social enterprises.
  • Palestinian handcrafts, living examples of ethnic art, and food are deeply rooted in the cultural identity and history of the people and land.  They have become a symbols of the people and their striving for a normal way of life with a national status, free of the Israeli colonial occupation of their land.
  • Palestinian handcrafts and food are part of the non-violent cultural resistance which benefits the economy and complements the BDS movement.
  • Making beautiful handcrafts also gives people dignity and helps them psychologically to survive while living under conditions where their most basic human rights are denied.
  • Hadeel (UK) is a company owned by the charity, Palcrafts (UK) – Scottish Charity number 033983.
  • ‘Hadeel’ is Arabic for the cooing of a dove.
