Busy Week at Fair & Green

This week's schedule at Fair & Green provides a little bit for everyone.

Truckee Thursdays from 5-9 pm: Open Mic Night in the Brickelltown Courtyard, a bicycle valet, and local art.

First Friday from 4-8 pm: Live music with Aaron Oropeza, tons of local arts and crafts, and yummy refreshments. Art. Music. Community. Join us as we head into our second year of First Fridays in style.

Saturday: 4th of July parade. Bring your chairs down to the courtyard and watch the parade from Brickelltown. We'll have refreshments to keep you cool as you wait for this great Truckee tradition to roll on by.

Fair & Green also just celebrated its 2nd year in business. Come down and show your support. We've got quite a few items on sale (Christmas in July?!) and some new products from Swaziland, India and Ghana.

It's Our Birthday!

Two years ago, Fair & Green opened the doors to the shop in Truckee, California. It only seems like yesterday that Heidi was sitting on the floor, checking in shipments, assembling displays, and Mick set up the computer and register.

We're so happy that the shingle we hung out there two years ago has survived sun, rain, snow and wind. Fair & Green has become a community staple in Brickelltown (Truckee's best kept secret--but keep us secret no more! Share the news with others).

Drake & Lulu's, The Feather's Edge, and Riverside Studios have been an amazing group of businesses to help build this historic area into the best place to hang out under the apple tree. Whether it's First Friday, Truckee Thursday, or just a lunch from Burger Me, the courtyard has become the place to be. As, we like to say, Brickelltown is the place to go when you're in the know.

Fair & Green hopes to continue to serve our community in North Lake Tahoe through our Giving Menu, volunteering our space to worthy causes (arts, non-profits, youth), and providing the best Fair Trade gifts at the fairest price. We're committed to not only our community, but the world community. If we can make Truckee a better place, we can make the world a better place, too.

Join us for a busy summer of events. And, please, pass the word about Fair & Green so that we can survive for another year! Think Local First and keep local, independent businesses open. We'd hate to have to close and hear "You can't close! You're my favorite store." It's a reality. Please continue your support of us, and we'll do everything we can to stay in business.

Happy Birthday to us!
