What is Fair Trade? Trade Built on Trust
As a member of the Fair Trade Federation we strive to create positive change through all of our work: socially, economically, and environmentally. Members work with 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.
Established in 2007, Lucia’s World Emporium (formerly Lucia’s World Friendly Boutique) is Lexington’s premier Fair Trade store for ethically made and eco-friendly gifts. We are located at 328 North Ashland Ave, Lexington, Kentucky 40502. After moving to our current location in October of 2014, we changed our name to Lucia’s World Emporium to reflect a larger variety of retail offerings, primarily our expanded home decor section.In 2016 we launched our online website in order to expand our reach even further.

Globally, many artisans have little opportunity to market their products. Fair Trade Federation members work directly with artisans in aid them in improving the economic well being and enabling them to earn a living wage in a region where there are few opportunities to do so. By committing to the Fair Trade Federation Principles we believe we can make a difference in the lives of artisans one purchase at a time, while bringing awareness to the beauty of artisan made products around the world!
