Welcome to Ten Thousand Villages Greenville!


Ten Thousand Villages Greenville is a Non-Profit Fair Trade Retailer who is part of the Ten Thousand Villages store network throughout the United States and Canada. Ten Thousand Villages' mission is to provide vital, fair income to people in developing countries by selling their handicrafts and telling their stories in North America. We work with artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed. This income helps pay for food, education, health care and housing.

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Greenville, SC

Ten Thousand Villages in Greenville, SC, 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.
