I am a huge fan of the Thai Craft Fair, held generally twice a month on a Saturday in Bangkok. The fair features artisans throughout Thailand. While they have a lot of regular vendors, they currently are doing a rotating theme featuring each general region of the country.
The wares vary from paper lamps, silk scarves, wicker baskets, silver jewelry.. a lot of the typical souvenir shopping products. And the products at the fair generally are slightly more expensive and much better in quality. Given that the association promotes fair trade, sustainable development, and business management, I’m all for paying for a good cause.
