We just stopped at Ten Thousand Villages for the first time today, and we will absolutely be back again soon! They have ethically sourced, fair trade goods from across the world -- we saw goods from Vietnam, African countries, Latin American countries, and more! The goods are EXTREMELY reasonably priced too! I love purchasing fair trade goods, but they are often out of budget for small gifts. This shop is full of quality, affordable items. We got a nativity today, and we'll be back again to get gifts for family and friends.
Absolutely in love with this store. I love traveling so the fact that this store is available for me to buy gifts from other countries is great. They're fair-trade, encourage diversity and is non-profit makes it one of the first places I shop when I'm looking for gifts.
Beautiful store, stories and staff. Thanks for our Iowa welcome.
The pic was nice to see but if you see it in person you would say wow
Ten Thousand Villages has an eclectic selection of fair trade products that truly includes something for everyone at very reasonable prices. Want socks that support efforts to save the sloths or save shelter dogs? Need to wrap gifts in a more eco-friendly way, perhaps using beautiful recycled Bangladeshi saris? Interested in a cloth tape measure that looks like an alpaca?
