Rich and Kim Waswrick are passionate people, about life and about business. We started their company in 2016. Rich comes from a computer background, Kim, a childcare background. It has been an exciting and fun learning experience starting our own business and once we get a free moment we will share our experiences.


Why we started our e-commerce site

We believe in supporting others while making a living for themselves, that is why fair-trade is important to them.  Fair trade means the people who hand-make these products are paid a living wage. The products come from developing countries across the world. The products are unique because each item holds something special from the artists themselves, no two are exactly alike. We would like to expand their fair-trade offerings and bring awareness to their community of the mission of fair trade by attending the local farmer’s market and displaying a variety of hand-made items.


More personal stuff

Outside of their business, Rich and Kim are enjoying life with their children, family is everything to them.  We are raising 4 wonderful children: Kaitlyn, 16, Dakota, 14, Drake 10, and Blake, 1. We certainly stay busy! When we are not spending quality time together, We enjoy exercising and watching movies together.  Individually, Rich enjoys mountain biking and RC car driving.  Kim enjoys experimenting with recipes and reading. We currently live in Kenosha, Wisconsin, with plans to reside in Colorado in the near future.
