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.


Due to our scheduled Store Inventory we will be opening at 12pm or soon thereafter on Wednesday, June 24. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Cambridge, MA

Ten Thousand Villages in Cambridge, MA, 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.

Volunteer

We welcome you to join our village of volunteers! As a nonprofit store, volunteers are crucial to our success, helping us to keep our overhead costs lower, which allows us to purchase more from artisans. Apply now to join our fun-filled volunteer positions—greeting and interacting with customers, unpacking and checking orders, assisting with displays and operating the cash register. We welcome volunteers any time of the year.

Let us know you’re interested by filling out an application at our store. You can also contact our store for more information.
