There is often confusion between One World Market (the independent store) and World Market (the big corporation). One World Market's whole premise is selling items made by people in third world countries. These are absolutely gorgeous pieces of craftsmanship and you know your money is not only going to a good cause, but helping it as well. The majority of the staff are volunteers, who make your shopping experience wonderful. They are always cheerful and happy to be offering thier time to the cause.
