There’s a new store in the Mission Valley mall here in San Diego and I’m going to share it with you today. About two weeks ago I wandered into The Golden Rule Boutique when I was killing some time and was struck by the uniqueness of what was offered. The first thing I spotted was a wallet with an elephant on it and that’s what drew me in… then, as I looked around, I noticed that the entire inventory was not what I’ve seen in any other store. Everything in this shop is carefully displayed to show off each individual item. The owner, Jackie, happened to be in the shop as I browsed around and she was eager to share what this shop was all about. The Golden Rule opened in the mall earlier this year and is the only fair trade fashion boutique in San Diego. This means that all of the people making the clothes and items displayed in the shop have been paid a fair wage for their efforts. Jackie partners with artisans in developing countries to provide them with a marketplace here in the US that allows them to earn a livable wage, live healthier lives, and keep their kids in school. When you shop here you can share a fair trade story about the item and where it came from and how it is helping people and communities around the world. ~ Jackie’s mission is heartfelt as she has seen first hand the abuse that artisans endure all over the world. Opening this shop has been a dream come true and I hope that you will visit it personally, or go to her website and browse around there. www.TheGoldenRuleBoutique.com ~ 1640 Camino del Rio N., suite 1478, San Diego 92108 ( in the mall near Starbucks and Tender Greens restaurant ) ~ Contact Jackie for more information as she is passionate about sharing this mission. ~ As for the wallet I spotted that day, I own it now, along with some other meaningful items!
Have a great day! Jana
