Tidal Treasures

With every ebb and flow, the sea bestows upon us precious gifts — ocean jewels nestled in the beach. The shimmering shoreline and its bits of earthy opulence are the inspiration for our newest collection of home accents.

Ten Thousand Villages helps to preserve crafting traditions passed down through generations, connecting customers with other cultures and their artistic heritage and creating beauty in the world.

We're located on St. Charles Avenue in Virginia-Highland (one block north of Ponce de Leon Avenue). Click on CONTACT above for directions or to give us a call. Be our fan on Facebook! Go to "AtlantaVillages".

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Atlanta, GA

Ten Thousand Villages in Atlanta, GA, is a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted home decor, personal accessories and gift items from across the globe. Featuring products from more than 130 artisan groups in some 38 countries, we are part of a network of over 390 retail outlets throughout the United States selling Ten Thousand Villages products.

As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.

Opened in 1993 on St. Charles Avenue in Virginia-Highland, Ten Thousand Villages in Atlanta is staffed largely by a group of dedicated volunteers. Join our team! Just stop by the shop to talk with the volunteers on duty and fill out an application.


Volunteer at Ten Thousand Villages in Atlanta, GA

We invite you to join our village of volunteers! As a nonprofit store, our success depends on volunteers. They help keep our overhead costs lower, which allows us to purchase more from artisans. Apply now to be part of our fun-filled volunteer program—greeting and interacting with customers, unpacking and checking orders, assisting with displays and operating the cash register.

After your training, we request a commitment of one four-hour shift per month and welcome volunteers throughout the year. Stop by the store any time to talk with the volunteers on duty, and let us know you're interested by filling out an application. You can also contact our store at 404-892-5307 for more information. We hope to hear from you soon.
