Welcome Mavens!

Community is so important for us at GlobeIn, and this year, community has been more important than ever. From getting excited to spoilers every month to watching Theme Reveal together, Mavens are truly special.

As we've all adapted to more time at home, we've shared our concerns, voted on product polls, swap products with other Mavens, scheduled FB Virtual Meetups instead of in-person Maven Meetups, and bonded over our excitement about finally receiving that tracking number!

Like many businesses and individuals, there have been many challenges for GlobeIn this year, but we appreciate your patience with us, your positive attitude, and our wonderful GlobeIn community. Thank you for being on this journey with us!

This year, the Mavens Facebook Group has grown from 7,000 members to more than 17,000 members and counting!

We look forward to continuing to make it a place for positive community engagement as it continues to grow, where we can all share our love of GlobeIn and support for Fair Trade.

We hope you enjoy this year's edition of our Maven Magazine. We'll let you in on some behind-the-scenes secrets, offer some insider looks at what's coming for the holiday season, introduce you to some fellow mavens, and much more!

Behind the Scenes
at GlobeIn HQ

by Sophie McAulay
2020 started out exciting for the GlobeIn HQ team. Having grown our HQ team to 13 full-time staff in 2019, it was time for us to move into a new office in San Francisco that had enough space for us all. Little did we know, we'd only be able to work there for a few months before everything changed!

Holidays Around the World
by Tigran Demurjian
At GlobeIn, we love to learn about foreign cultures and their traditions. You might share our passion for travel, exploration, and learning about how other people live around the world. While you can learn a lot about a culture from the artforms practiced by its artisans, handicrafts are just one piece of the cultural pie.
