Snow, Snow, Snow

Ladies and gentlemen of Amman, we are sad to report that our Annual Christmas Sale Event has been canceled for today due to the masses amount of snow outside.

However, we have hundreds of cookies, loads of hot coco, and prizes and discounts that we want to give away, so, we decided that this Sunday, December 15th we will have the From The Earth's showroom open for extended hours of 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM (and if you can't get there until 7:00PM, just give us a call and we are happy to keep the store open for you).

Please stay safe and warm this cold winter day! And, come visit us on Sunday when it is sunny and "warm".

1033: New Product Be Smart Budget Wallet

We LOVE 1033's latest product, the Be Smart Budget Wallet. Not only is this wallet adorable, but it is functional too.

Inside each wallet are one change purse and six fabric envelopes where you can insert paper labels for your budget. Do you need a category for transportation? Food? Fun? Felafel? Shopping? Whatever your budget looks like, you can make it happen.

Also inside, there is a section for storing receipts and various cards that you might need to carry with you. This wallet is made to help you with budgeting, but why not make budgeting a little more fun by enveloping it in fun fabrics?

Just as a reminder, 1033 is a company based right here in Amman, they are teaching women marketable skills and quality craftsmanship. Alongside this investment in great product, they are making an impact in alleviating poverty and growing the dignity and influence of these ladies in their families and communities.

So then, by purchasing this excellent product you are not only doing something fun and good for yourself, you can participate in alleviating poverty and growing dignity and influence of the ladies who hand-make each wallet. Sounds like a good deal huh?
