Durham’s fair trade store, Bull City Fair Trade, was founded and is maintained by volunteers. It sources handmade crafts from artisans in dozens of countries. Frances Anton has been a steadfast volunteer with the organization since the late 1990s, taking several shifts per month, and more during the busy holiday season, which can account for a third of annual sales. She maintains an extensive knowledge of artisan groups and fair trade products. Soon after she began volunteering over 20 years ago, the need arose for a volunteer to join the board, and Frances stepped up to become the lead fundraiser for the store’s move to its current location in the 9th Street North business district, which cost $50,000.
