Bead for Life offers a better future

roseRose is a charming and vibrant woman, mother of four. After her husband’s untimely death from a motorcycle accident, she struggled to support her family. It was hard to believe that a woman who lived in poverty, in a shack without electricity or running water, without a spare dime, and four children of her own, had found the generosity to adopt a child orphaned by AIDS. But Rose’s inner light just always seems to shine through.

beadJoining Bead for Life not only provided Rose and her family with an opportunity for a better future, but it also gave her a new source of love and hope. Our Fair Trade Shop, at Stone Presbyterian Church, 8 So. Park Row, Clinton has a very large selection of jewelry from Bead for Life (handmade from recycled paper) along with other exquisite jewelry, ornaments, nativities, collectibles, wood items, chocolate and food items, clothing and toys from 38 different countries.

We support the mission projects of Stone Church, which have included the Parkinson’s Unit of the Presbyterian Home and Habitat for Humanity. This holiday season our Fair Trade Shop anticipates contributing to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance for hurricane relief and the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees. Purchasing fair trade items ensures artisans and small farmers fair wages and healthy working conditions, providing dignity, sustainable development and hope for marginalized people.

Our hours are 10:00 AM to 6:30 PM every Thursday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM second Saturdays and 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM each Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
