Winds of Change

With cooler winds whipping leaves around the corners of city buildings these days, and a BOLT bus trip to 34th Street on the calendar for tomorrow, I can’t help but think about the bustle of late autumn in New York and holiday shopping at the timeless Macy’s Herald Square.

This year, in addition to adding Celebrity Gift Shops within its department stores for gifts created by Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and others, Macy’s is opening International Gifting Centers for items created by the artisans of Fairwinds Trading.

Fairwinds Trading uses a sustainable business model, partnering with artisans in post-trauma communities who lack access to markets to create pricing and marketing strategies for their goods, and ensure that the artisans receive maximum profits.
