I'm a sucker for items from other countries and cultures. I think it's the wanderlust in me that craves something from far away. Just knowing an item came from a different country with different climates, cultures, languages, and foods excites me-like I have a tiny piece of that far away land to wear or put on my shelf for display.
Of course I'd rather travel and experience the people and cultures myself, but collecting is the next best thing until I can afford to travel across the globe!
Until then, companies like GlobeIn help satiate my craving with unique handcrafted goods from artists all over the world.
"We created GlobeIn to make a difference in the lives of local artisans by connecting them with the global economy. That desire drives us to be a different kind of online marketplace. One with a focus on creating opportunities for all artisans. One that is not limited by technology but expanded by it. One that is motivated not by what is easy for us, but by what will be most meaningful for them. One that values not only our artisans crafts, but also their passion, their history and their culture."
