Harvest

Enjoy the final fruits of the season al fresco with autumn-painted trees as a brilliant backdrop. Celebrate the harvest with handcrafted coziness in colors that complement nature’s palette.

We are still collecting new or gently worn shoes at our store to send to Well of Hope International, a non-profit organization in Kiserian, Kenya. The sale of these shoes provides funds to purchase land and homes, providing secure shelter for the widows and their children. Our store manager, Valerie, will be making another trip to Kenya this August to continue our work with the Well of Hope organization!

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Harrisonburg, VA

Ten Thousand Villages in Harrisonburg, VA, carries 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 about 80 non-profit Ten Thousand Villages stores specializing in Fair Trade retail.

This store started with the dream of two local women who became determined to begin a fair trade store in this area after a visit to the Ephrata, PA flagship store. In 1993 they organized a local group and raise the money in a six week time period to begin our store. At first, the store was named "International Impressions" and was located in a strip mall behind Harrisonburg's Valley Mall. From there, the store moved to the Shenandoah Farmer's Market and later to the Dayton Farmer's Market where it remained for fourteen years and took on the name "Ten Thousand Villages." In 2011, our store moved to its present location at 181 S. Main Street in downtown Harrisonburg.

What We Carry

In the store, we carry products made by artisans who hold a partnership with Ten Thousand Villages, and also products made by artisans and groups with personal relationships to our store or other Fair Trade suppliers. Customers visit our store when in search of jewelry, home decor products, gifts, coffee, chocolate, and more.

About Our Store

Ten Thousand Villages Harrisonburg is made up of paid staff members, a handful of committed and passionate volunteers, and a nine member board of directors. We were voted 'Best Downtown Shop' by Daily News Record readers in 'Best of the Valley 2014' and were award recipients of 'Best of Virginia 2014'.

We love running our store in the heart of the Friendly City and are always looking for more ways to become involved with the Harrisonburg community. If your school, club, organization or business is interested in partnering with us for a Community Shopping Event, a specific speaking engagement, or any other kind of local activity, please contact our Outreach Coordinator at outreach.harrisonburg@tenthousandvillages.com.
