Our new products are rolling in slowly but steadily and we can feel the new life being pumped into our By The Change inventory. There is nothing like opening those big beat-up boxes to find beautiful new designs by our favorite artisans. This shipment of new inventory is especially exciting because 1. thanks to you this is our largest order to date and 2. we personally met the people who made these products which takes it to a whole other level of joy in seeing their handiwork.

Nefarious: Merchant of Souls is a graphic look at the worldwide issues of human trafficking and sexual slavery. It is currently being shown at public screenings around the country.

This movie is at times horrifying, with reenactments of how organized crime rings kidnap women in Eastern Europe, actual footage of trafficked women and children in Southeast Asia, and interviews with rescued women in the United States, it will leave your heart very heavy.
