Artisan's Story

Artist Benson Thermidor lives in Jubilee, a village just outside of Gonaives, Haiti. He was binding songbooks, Bibles, and texts for local friends when 2nd Story Goods, a local nonprofit, asked him to teach his skills to others in the village who needed work. Through this partnership, Benson's business has grown to include 25 other men and women and a full-sized workshop.
