Vested Interest is one of the most unique and socially conscious stores and companies I have ever encountered. The owners have spent years developing a business that offers products that are hand-made in Indonesia and various other third world countries. They pay a legitimate amount to the artisans and charge very reasonable prices at their retail store. It is a tradition for my children and I to shop at Vested Interest for Christmas and Birthday presents for our family.Recently the business suffered a catastrophic fire and will have to move to another locale. They deserve all the support and trade customers can give so that they can come back even better.

At Vested Interest Trading, our mission is simple: to import hand-made goods from around the world, to engage in Fair Trade and sustainable practices and to support global economies by working with artisan families in countries like Indonesia, Thailand and Nepal.
Since 1993, we have travelled across the world in search of unique and intriguing goods. Along the way, we made it our policy to buy only from family run, cottage industry businesses and never from large manufacturers, helping to ensure the viability and strength of remote villages and the men and women who inhabit them. At home in Northern Ontario, we support local businesses through our consignment program. It allows us to offer organic honey, fresh produce, golden beef, natural soaps and maple syrup alongside our collection of art, furniture, clothing and home furnishings.
