Shopping local has gone global at one of the newest additions to Mt. Pleasant Street. At Amani ya Juu, which is Swahili for "Peace from Above," every purchase you helps an African craftswoman pull herself and her community out of poverty. But knowing our hard-earned cash is going to benefit the Amani organizations in Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and Liberia, is only half the reward – the huge array of accessories and home decor items in this store are just as awesome. The team prides itself on not shying away from color, while still being conscious of their patron's work needs. Our eyes were initially drawn to the wall of brightly colored iPad cases and bags, and eventually settled on an exquisitely detailed, well-tailored frock. (The dress, we were later informed, was one of the shop's most popular designs.) But perhaps our favorite items in the store were for kids. The buckets of hand-crafted safari animal plush toys made us smile. (We're pretty sure our baby nephew will agree.)
