Hello!  I am finding all of these lovely wooden/natural/made in the USA and Fair Trade toys online....but I haven't bought anything yet because I was hoping to give my business to local merchants wherever possible.

 

SO -- who knows where to get great, eco- and labor-friendly toys, in our tribal areas?

 

Please post the shop and the location along with stuff they do best.

There's a cute little place on York Road near the Anneslie/Rodger's Forge/Stoneleigh area called Home Again.  They have new and consigned jewelry and furniture and a bunch of kids stuff too.
