Third World Bazaar
The Third World Bazaar is a family operated business, run by Peggy & Dick Bakker, together with their children; Case and Anneka. Up to 2003, the business had been operated in the Kingston area by Paul and Evelyn Gervan (Peggy’s brother). The new owners have carried on a similar business model of direct purchasing and direct retailing. Peggy and Dick are continuing to purchase from many of the same Artisans Paul and Evelyn had supported. The business is now situated next to Bakker’s General Store which is operated by Henry Bakker (Dick’s brother). Yes, lots of family involved here!
Over the past four years the Bakker family has traveled to, and purchased directly from producers, in Vietnam, Bangladesh, Namibia, South Africa, Kenya, Guatemala, Indonesia, Cuba and Thailand. The world is a varied and interesting place with many different things to offer; they hope you can find something that reflects your interests, at the Third World Bazaar.
