HI Lizzee, thank you for supporting our business and our fair and ethical supply chain. The bombers are new this year and we think we have got it right. And the wall hangings are becoming more and more rare as each generation tends to gradually drop traditions. We hope we can continue to carry forward the cultural traditions through our bag designs and other products.
Hi John, I wish I had your words because they really express who we want to be. We will not rest. We want to get better and better and have more excited customers telling other customers. Thank you so much for your review.
Thank you for encouraging our staff - they really try to step up as they also develop their foreign languages which will give them advantages in future employment. Oh I think you meant Yak socks!
这是一个很好的公平贸易商店，有不错的产品。玛丽玛莎商店希望促进道德和透明的公平贸易，使世界变得更加公正。而且M & M的产品比纪念品商店里乱七八糟的东西要好得多，质量也好得多!推荐!
HI ESV, thank you for your great encouragement. We work hard on specifications, teach artisans to live for quality and be proud of their products. Unlike most shops that just take deliveries directly onto their shelves, we buy all year round, operate a strict QC group who work with artisans on details of quality. occasionally something gets through, which makes us sad but generally we have a 99% acceptance rates of products from Artisans - used to be as low as 80% years ago - but artisans learnt that doing things right the first time is actually more profitable for them.
Hi katbee, thank you for your encouraging review and highlighting the Fair & Ethical nature of the shop. We have 12 years of demonstrating business can be sustainable when run this way for the whole supply chain with everyone making at least a living wage. As we expand we hire more staff from difficult backgrounds - no fault of theirs - and they immediately start working on their English so they are making progress.
这家商店非常适合(买)纪念品和礼物。范围极佳 - 你能想到的几乎都有。家居陈设、手机盖、服装袋、小纪念品…所有的产品都以符合道德的方式采购，以支持当地社区，而且你可以阅读商店中每种产品的来源。价格很实惠。
HI Chissers, Over the years as we have grown we have been able to expand our gift range meaning we have been able to take on and support more local artisans - developing the businesses of local artisans is a key part of our Vision. So let's hope we can find more shop space for next year at an economical price. We also hope to increase our artisan information and even as our buying prices rise we hope to be able to tighten our margins so Artisans are the beneficiaries even when things get tough.
