Come visit us in Lincoln's historic Haymarket!


Welcome to Lincoln's Fair Trade store! Join us in partnering with our community in Lincoln to build a more equitable world. There are lots of ways to get involved! Shop with us! Volunteer! Educate! Entertain!

What happens when I shop Fair Trade?

I improve the livelihoods and well-being of producers by improving market access, strengthening producer organizations, paying a better price and providing continuity in the trading relationship

I promote development opportunities for disadvantaged producers, especially women and marginalized groups and to protect children from exploitation in the production process

I raise awareness among consumers of the negative effects on producers of international trade so that they exercise their purchasing power positively

I set an example of partnership in trade through dialogue, transparency and respect

I campaign for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade

I protect human rights by promoting social justice, sound environmental practices and economic security

Your choices matter. Thank you for supporting Fair Trade!


About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Lincoln, NE

Ten Thousand Villages in Lincoln, NE, 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.

Nativity Showcase! - November 7, 2014

7 PM-9 PM

On Friday, November 7, at 7:00 pm we will host a showcase of our new nativities for the year. Children and youth from Lincoln and surrounding communities present the new nativities between 7:00 and 7:30 pm telling event attendees about their favorite nativity including information about the artisan group, materials and processes involved in its design. We will also offer 15% off all nativities!

Home baked treats made from our cookbooks and Women’s Bean Project mixes will be available for sampling. We will also have Sophia Potter of The Rangbrook Ensemble playing live cello during our event and that will certainly add a beautiful element to the evening!

*Our normally scheduled First Friday drum circle will start at 8:00 instead of 7:00 this night.*
