A STROLL OUTDOORS
The concrete jungle is not so concrete! See an outdoor movie at Bryant Park; sunbathe on the green of Central Park; channel your inner bookworm at the Brooklyn Bridge Park; or take a scenic walk on The High Line! Whichever you choose to do, make sure you do it in style with Global Goods Partners’ summer accessories.
Make your outfit POP with our Acai Bead Necklaces! Made in Brazil from the pit of the Acai berry, and finished off with a coconut shell toggle closure, this necklace is all you need for your fun in the sun!
You can also channel your inner Nature Goddess, and finish off your outfit with our Leaves Fabric Jewelry set! Handmade in Mexico, the Leaves Fabric necklace, earring, and bracelet are a delicate & unique addition to your wardrobe!
A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN
After sitting in an office from 9-5, 5-7 days a week, New Yorkers are itching to escape the cubicle and blow off some steam with family, friends, and colleagues. Nightlife in NY is exciting, and there is no limit to the variety of events, parties, or shows you can enjoy!
Why enjoy your dinner inside, when there are skylines to be viewed! Whether on top of a hotel, restaurant, or bar, it’s not hard to find an elevated space to sit back and relax on. See the Empire State Building light up the night sky at the 230 Fifth Lounge, or enjoy the largest outdoor hotel space on the terrace of Yotel in Times Square.
Keep your look simple, sexy, and chic. You can mix and match patters and textures for an interesting look. Below I paired our black and white Silk Button Necklace with the cross-hatch pattern of our Bold Clutch Purse. Our Upcycled Wire Stud Earrings & gold Metal Bangles are the cherry on top of this delicious look! Now you’re ready for a night out on the town.
(Hint: You can find more fun fair trade looks like this on the Global Goods Partners Polyvore Page!)
Your summer is not complete without a trip to the beach! Sun, waves, and sand are the epitome of the summer season. After Hurricane Sandy, volunteers and local governments convened to clean up and rebuild the shorelines. Now, they are ready to accommodate beach dwellers! Build a sandcastle at Jones Beach, sunbathe at Rockaway Beach, or take a trip to take a dip at one of the many beaches on Long Island.
Keep all of your food, water toys, and sunscreen in one place with our selection of handmade Tote Bags. Carry in style with our Tribal Print and Burlap Tote, made by female artisans in Liberia. Take your Reversible Tote Bag, and you will pay for 1 Cambodian child to have 4 nutritious meals at Friends-International centers. The Black Embroidered Handbag adds a vibrant pop to your beach wardrobe, and the Cotton Fabric Tote will be perfect for a bonfire at the beach.
Have a happy summer!
