A Fair Trade Marketplace

Welcome to Lucia's World Emporium. Founded in 2007, we are a Fair Trade boutique and gift store dedicated to bringing you the highest quality apparel, accessories, home decor, and gifts from around the world. Every product at Lucia's is carefully selected keeping your values in mind. As a member of the Fair Trade Federation we strive to create positive social, economic, and environmental change everyday. We source our products from small farmers and artisans in holistic partnerships built on trust. These relationships go beyond ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions — they empower producers to strengthen their communities and grow their businesses sustainably. By committing to these principles, we believe we can make a difference in the world one purchase at a time, while bringing awareness to the beauty of artisan made goods.
