Lanke Kade Toys

The animals came in two by two………

Come and checkout our large range of hand-made wooden toys, from artisans and small cooperatives in Sri Lanka.  These small animals are priced from £2.20 to £2.50 according to size - ideal to collect.

Or if wood is not your thing, then from the same source we have a range of dolls - soft filled, hand washable and made from cotton fabric.  These are available in a range of colours at £11.50 for the smaller ones and £16.50 for the larger.

You may initially come into the Fair Trade Shop because you believe in fair trade………

but we believe that the range and quality of the products we offer will be what brings you back.


Not exactly high tech..............

but you can help reduce one-time plastic use by refilling your bottles with us!  

As part of our drive to reduce single use plastic, we have extended our range of refillable products. Bring in your empty bottle, any size, and we can refill it for you.  We offer washing up liquid, laundry liquid (bio and non-bio), cream cleaner, liquid hand soap, shampoo, toilet cleaner, anti-bac handwash (very relevant!), all purpose cleaner, body wash, hair conditioner, shampoo and white vinegar.  Our price list for these refills is available here.

We are proud to include in our range, products from the Sustainable Ethical Supplies Initiative (SESI).  To learn more about SESI click here.

Advent Calendars

Despite all the Covid restrictions, we are nearly at the start of the Christmas holiday season.  One way to try to make this season "normal" for your children is to get them an Advent Calendar.  We have several now in stock but these are always very popular so don't delay!

The Real Advent Calendar comes with a 24 page Christmas story book, with each calendar door hiding a milk chocolate treat.  Sales of these help support the Funzi and Bodo Trust providing care for mums and babies  from poor African villages.

We also have calendars to suit coeliacs - the So Free organic calendars are nut, gluten, dairy and lactose free alternatives to chocolate, available as both white and milk chocolate alternatives at £4.99 each.

Incense and Fragrance Sticks

We probably hold the largest stock of incense and fragrances in Ipswich.  Our range of Mother’s fragrances from India includes sticks, cones, mini sticks, sachets and associated incense holders - all suitable for reflection and meditation in a range of prices to suit all pockets.  Come and see (and smell!) the range in store.

New In - Calendars, diaries and a weekly almanac

Lets face it, 2020 has been a bit rubbish!  So lets get planning for better things in 2021 with our range of calendars and diaries now in stock.   

New - Organic Goodness soy wax candles in Rose, Orange or Sandalwood fragrances at £14.90 each.  Diffusers available too at £10.80.
