About Us

Amistad is a fair-trade store. Amistad means "friendship" and our products represent the themes of friendship and hospitality.

In our store you will find the best quality fair-trade products made by artisans from around the world. You will also find beautiful and unique treasures handcrafted by artisans in the U.S.A. and in St. Augustine.  Your purchase makes a difference in the lives of these talented artisans and the communities in which they live.  Our purpose is to make a difference at home and around the world through the products that we sell, and through our ongoing efforts to improve the lives of those who live in poverty, and those who are suffering in our community (both humans and animals!).

We are located in St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest city in the United States.  The historic nature and Spanish influence has brought many people of different cultures to live here.  It also attracts many artists who are inspired by the ocean, nature, history, and simply the beautiful surroundings.

Amistad was established in 2011 by Susan and Jorge Herrera.
