Handmade arts and crafts from more than 20 countries are brought together in One World Emporium, a new shop in the Strawberry Fields complex in downtown Catonsville.
The store, behind Catonsville Gourmet, has offerings including dolls from India, puppets from Chile, ceramics from Mexico, baskets from Uganda, vases from Vietnam and hand-carved chess sets from Pakistan.
The store is a vendor for A Greater Gift/Serve Corp., which offers fair-trade items from around the world, says Alexey Mernaugh, who owns One World Emporium with his father, Larry Mernaugh, a psychotherapist at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
The Mernaughs originally opened the store in York, Pa., in 2006, but moved the shop to Catonsville on May 1 in hopes of attracting more business.The shop sells paintings, tiles and photographs from three Catonsville artists, in addition to the gifts from across the globe.
Prices range from about $3.50 for small toys and jewelry to $70 for a ceramic umbrella stand from Vietnam.
