About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in King of Prussia, PA

Ten Thousand Villages in King of Prussia, PA, 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.

Ten Thousand Villages in King of Prussia is located within the King of Prussia Mall, the largest shopping mall on the east coast of the United States.  Over 400 stores and restaurants occupy this vast shopping center making it the east coast's premier shopping destination.  The shopping center is located in King of Prussia in the Upper Merion Township of Pennsylvania.  King of Prussia Mall is made up of two separate buildings which include the Plaza at King of Prussia and the Court at King of Prussia. Ten Thousand Villages is located in the upper level of the Court at King of Prussia. 

Stop in and enjoy a day of shopping in the east coasts premier shopping destination!
