“Cafe and world folk art”
Traditions is a place to discover folk art products from cultures around the world, made available through fair and equitable trade relationships with low-income artisans and farmers from more than fifty countries. Traditions is also a cafe and center for concerts, workshops and public forums; a gathering place for a community of interesting and involved people. "Traditions, as Traditions Fair Trade, started at the Antique Sandwich Company. in Tacoma, Washington. in October of 1993. The Antique Sandwich Company has been operating since 1974 as a place for tasty and healthy breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, entrees, and desserts as well as a spot for the South Puget Sound community for folk and classical concerts, open mikes, plays, and social benefits. Tamie and Shirley Herridge started small and grew over the years and they continue to serve the first and next generation of “Antique regulars”. I had been a working part of that partnership for two decades until devoting my time to the Olympia store and cafe." - Dick Meyer
Super interesting little store and cafe. Store has great prices on fair trade items from around the world. Keepsakes, toys, Russian Amber jewelry, Mexican art, Tibetan hats- you name it they have it in the store! Cafe has a variety of vegetarian dishes and great snacks. Love the gingerbread! Also, the cafe often has live music and is all ages, so kids are allowed. Great employees who are friendly and helpful as well. Definitely worth a stop down town in Oly.
