About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Fredericksburg, VA

Ten Thousand Villages in Fredericksburg, VA, 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.

 

On the 40th anniversary of Earth Day 2010, Ten Thousand Villages in Fredericksburg was presented with The Living Green Award from The Rappahannock Group of the Sierra Club for outstanding earth friendly practices.

Ten Thousand Villages in Fredericksburg opened in Central Park in October 2007, then moved to it's current location in The Village at Towne Centre in October 2012.

What Our Volunteers Say


"When I retired a few years ago, I wanted to get involved with a project that makes a difference in someone's life. Ten Thousand Villages fits the bill perfectly!" - Betsy, volunteer since 2008

"I enjoy meeting people and I find volunteering here gives me the chance to meet very interesting people with interests worldwide. I figure I'm never too old to learn more about this great world we live in!" - Heather, volunteer since 2009

"I volunteer at Ten Thousand Villages because I believe in the mission of fair trade which provides a living wage to artisans in developing countries, and a bonus has been that I love the people that I have met through volunteering." - Linda, volunteer since 2009

"It is my great hope that by giving some of my time and money to support craftspeople in developing countries, they will be encouraged and lifted out of severe poverty." - Nancy, volunteer since 2007

"I've had the opportunity to travel in a number of developing countries and I always fell for the local crafts. The workmanship always impressed me and I was amazed at the creative use of recycled materials. When I discovered the Ten Thousand Villages in Fredericksburg and realized that the store was part of a not for profit organization that practices fair trade, I knew I'd found a perfect volunteer niche. I signed on immediately!" - Susan, volunteer since 2007
