Sands of Time
The desert is an ancient canvas, unchanged by the suns and winds of a million moons. Sculpted stone whispers the wisdom of the ages, earthenware bears skill that transcends generations, marbled patterns mirror swirling sands, creating a collection defined by rugged spirit and refined by artistic legacy.

Host a Giving Twice Shopping Night Benefit!
What it is:
We invite area nonprofits to partner with us on a Giving Twice Shopping Night Benefit to raise money for your cause. Your group selects a night, promotes it, and Ten Thousand Villages in Archbold donates a percentage from the sales to the organization.
- Your nonprofit can choose any month, excluding December, to host the event.
- Your nonprofit may choose any three hour block of time any day of the week. Need us to extend our hours into the evening? Just ask and we will see what we can do.
- We will donate 15 percent from sales during your three-hour block once a minimum of $300 is raised.
If interested in planning your shopping night, contact us at 419-445-1926, ext 300 or email us at email@example.com
