Worldly Goods celebrated our 30th anniversary this year! As a non-profit, Fair Trade store, part of our mission is to inspire sustainable livelihoods for our artisans from over 50 countries. We provide these artisans a marketplace for their products, where they are paid upfront for their work, earn a living wage within their country, have safe working conditions, and no child or forced labor is used.
Worldly Goods was a vendor the inaugural year and loved the atmosphere and mission of Christkindlmarket Des Moines! It is so much fun to share our mission and Fair Trade products from diverse cultures.
We have Christmas and holiday themed items from around the world. You can find that special nativity or ornament that will make your season bright. There will be hats, scarves, and gloves to keep you warm on those cold wintry days. Stop by our hut and be surprised by all the fun and unique gifts that are handmade just for you!
Des Moines European Heritage Association connects Iowans with European traditions, language education and cultural experiences; and it provides resources and tools to other cultural heritage organizations.
