      Spend five minutes in Sojourns, Birmingham’s only fair-trade retail establishment, and you’ll quickly comprehend that proprietress Melissa Kendrick is a woman of the world.

      Performers at the 2012 Birmingham International Street Fair include members of the Umdabu Zulu dance and drum corps.
      The store features Vietnamese tea sets, African masks, Peruvian jewelry, silk scarves from Nepal, Dominican chocolate, Indian chai. Of course, there are staples — handmade clothing; handcrafted toys; natural body products, including soaps, lotions and lip balms — but the inventory changes often enough that I think of the store as a sort of international destination in my neighborhood. The goods come from more than 360 artisan co-ops in 55 countries
