|About||COOL AND UNIQUE HANDMADE CRAFTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!!|
EVERYTHING HAS A HUMBLE
In 2007 I and my family took a getaway trip to South America that has changed our lives. Between visits to our friends and relatives, we went to visit local craft markets and were amazed by all the beauty of the handcrafts we saw. As we traveled through South America we met many families of artisans and saw how hard they lived. Many lived in total poverty working day by day to survive. To try to help them, we bought as many crafts that we could pay.
Upon returning to the United States we began to exhibit in small fairs and festivals. The response was fantastic! In a couple of shows, we were sold out and everyone got amazed and asking for more. We quickly went back to South America to meet again with those artisans to buy more inventory. We never expected so much success and quickly we became major runners in festivals and markets throughout the East Coast.
After few years trading with these families of artisans we learned to appreciate more life, learning with them that life is much happier when lived with simplicity and slowing things down. Even though been so poor they chose to live life to the fullest. We enjoyed being with them, eat and have long talks and celebrate things together, almost like family. Besides being our partners and suppliers they have become our great friends and taught us a new philosophy: "Money isn't everything, happiness and friendship are!".
During the time we are in business we learned that many people waste their time trying to make money. More they have more they want, so they forget to enjoy their life.
Ethnic and Groovy unites the love for handmade crafts with having the most of life. That is the meaning of our Trade Name.
We believe in having a good time while doing what we love and we do love what we do. We have a passion for traveling, making friends, adventure, talking to people and learning about other cultures and places. Also, we believe in Spirituality and all we do is not for the
