Here at A World of Difference we have been promoting all things ethical for over a decade from our little Aladdin's cave of a shop in the beautiful and historic town of Alnwick, Northumberland.

In 2006 we swapped city living for a more-self sufficient lifestyle in the country. Soon afterwards the chance to purchase a small fair trade shop arose, and seemed too good an opportunity to miss. 

Over the years the business has grown, and in addition to the original fairly traded ranges including gifts, clothing & accessories has expanded into an emporium of all things ethical.  Our shelves are now laden with all manner of organic, vegetarian & vegan foods, environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free household items and recycled bits and bobs too. 

This online shop may be new, but rest assured we have been selling online via Ebay for 10 years as a top rated seller. Now feels like the time to open a new chapter and share a small, hand-picked selection of our favourite items in our very own World of Difference store!

Thanks for visiting, and we hope you enjoy browsing, and maybe buying too :)
