Caitie’s Visit

   Posted by: admin   in


Here we are badly scolded by Renice. But we spent all day with Caitie,
Three of us took her to the market, and to the workshops of the village.
Many women were introduced to her and gave her a great home-cooked meal.
We made a big effort to host Caitie (who is very nice) and at our own expense.

Here are the G-Mails, read with MboxViewer:

Renice and María’s email record

Here you can see the actual G-Mails of Global Crafts with Artcamp going back to 2010.

We had a good relationship with Caitie she saw how we make our jewelry and how we live and both times she visited, we told her the cost of our jewelry, even taking her to where we purchase jewelry making materials and to the public market where she could see for herself how much everything costs. We did everything to make this customer satisfied. We attended Caitie and gave our time and paid for food and transportation. In fact, we now would like to talk with Caitie  because she will surely verify all that I am saying. In this mail Renice expresses suspicion at us; she says that there is something about us she does not understand, like she understands her other suppliers. But what is it?

We all like Caitie. Caitie even stayed at Serena’s house. She had all the time to ask any question she wanted. What do we have to hide? Why does Renice act as if she were unsatisfied with us? We are only craftswomen who want to work, who have to work to support our families, while Renice is judging us and making us pay money we don’t have to receive her employee (she is a very nice person).  And we did everything with grace and never complained. We gave her everything she asked for. Our delivery record is perfect. We have NO unresolved quality claims in seven years. What is the reason for Renice’s dissatisfaction with us? she expresses in her letter that she knows the least about us. Why does she know only the least of us? We are communicative. And WHY do you think she tell us about a competitor in “Mexican alpaca silver” (this is someone who Renice Jones very well knows is notorious as a cheap-payer and a dealer unwelcome in at least one village). WHY does Renice mention this dealer to us? She knows he is not an artisan like Artcamp. That he is a foreigner, a copier, and is a very-cheap payer. That he is a bad person and a competitor and enemy of the cooperative. And yet she warns us of him and his cheap imitations of our jewelry? WHY?

WHY does Renice mention this competition in her  letter, if not to warn us against any rise in price? Why does she say “it is a very crowded market” if not to warn us against our asking for any possible price rise? She is actually threatening us with this foreign operation buying in the Taxco tianguis (it’s like a flea-market or a bazaar where artisans are the lowest of all). In this letter of April 5th 2017, one sees the clear evidence of Renice’s animus towards us. And the women of Artcamp have always treated Renice very respectfully. Correctly.

Please Download all our GMail conversations see for yourself how well we have always treated her.

 CAITIE

WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT DO YOU THINK?
RENICE JONES FORCEFULLY COMPLAINS
THAT CAITIE DID NOT GET TO MEET US YET
WE WERE WITH KATIE FOR AN ENTIRE DAY
FROM EARLY MORNING, UNTIL NIGHT;
WE TOOK HER TO THE MARKET
SO SHE COULD SEE FOR HERSELF
WHAT EVERYTHING COSTS
WE TOOK HER AROUND
TO THE CRAFTWOMENS HOUSES
SO SHE COULD MEET THEM
SEE HOW THEY MAKE THE PIECES.
WHERE IS CAITIE? SHE WILL VOUCH FOR US!
PLEASE, CAN CAITIE JONES BE INVITED FORWARD TO BACK US UP?
PLEASE SHOW US THE NOTEBOOKS CAITIE KEPT WHEN SHE WAS HERE.

KATIE ARRIVED THE NIGHT OF DAY ONE.
WE WENT TO MEET HER AT HER HOTEL.
BUT SHE AND HER MOTHER HAD LEFT TO GO EAT.
WE LOOKED FOR HER IN THE RESTAURANTS OF THE CITY  CENTER
UNTIL AFTER NINE O CLOCK AT NIGHT.
DAY TWO WE WERE WITH HER FROM EARLY MORNING UNTIL AFTER DARK.
SHE NEVER MENTIONED ABOUT ANOTHER MEETING ON SATURDAY.
WHAT IS THIS ABOUT? WHAT DID RENICE WANT KATIE TO DO WITH US,
THAT SHE DID NOT DO? WHO DID SOMETHING WRONG? WAS IT US?

In this email of 2015, upon her employee Caitie Jones’ return from visiting us,
Global Crafts owner Renice Jones strongly complains that Artcamp is the supplier
she “knows the least about”. (Caitie had already inspected us once, the previous year.)

What is she talking about? Why does she know the least about us?
…since we had already been her supplier for at least five-years.

Caitie took volumnious notes in her two visits with Artcamp.
Aren’t the answers to Renice Jones’ doubts in those notebooks?


Global Craft 
employee Caitie Jones visited us in our homes,
two times (two different years) she came here to report on us.

She stayed with us in our village, and she got to know us.

Can we please take a look at Caitie’s “copious notes”?
Caitie wrote down our costs and our working conditions,
and the prices of jewelry materials, and the prices for food,
and the price of a pair of baby shoes, and everything else…

Again, we ask the Fair Trade Federation for help.
