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.

We returned to our normal store hours on Friday, December 26th.

Please note that we will be closing at 5pm on New Year's Eve and closed New Year's Day. We will be open on Martin Luther King Day on Monday, January 19th.

Laura Minadeo - Store Manager

"I am honored to work for such a special and unique place. Being a fair trade store, Ten Thousand Villages allows our guest to retail with a reason. It is an amazing thing when you can pick up an object and learn where it is was made, who it was made by, and how your purchase makes a difference."

“I’m so happy to be back in the store after a 7 year hiatus! My two kids are also excited that I’m working in a place that lends itself to buying them fair traded goodies! I really enjoy meeting people from all over the world that come in and am proud to tell them that fair trade is happening here in the United States.”
