Come visit us in Lincoln's historic Haymarket!

World Fair Trade Day!

Fair Trade is commerce that builds equitable, long-term partnerships between consumers in North America and producers in developing regions. It emphasizes a fair wage for all workers, safe working conditions, and respect for cultural traditions. Artisans and farmers build their own businesses, and the profits stay in their communities and go back into their businesses. In North America, Fair Trade products account for retail sales of more than $1.3 billion per year. Throughout May, people in 80 countries worldwide will hold activities to highlight the importance and benefits of Fair Trade.

Help us celebrate on May 3rd! Here are some of the activities we have planned for the day:

10:00 – 11:00 Less Talk, More Polka
1:00 – 2:00 Karen Teen Culture Group
2:00 – 4:00 Azraq - Middle Eastern Music and Belly Dancers

“Fair Trade Selfies” take a selfie in the store and upload it to social media with the hashtag #WFTDLincoln. Show us your selfie and you can enter to win a $15 gift card!

Scavenger Hunt for Kids to learn and understand fair trade and other cultures. Stickers and prizes will be awarded!

Information and pictures about our manager's recent trip to Peru to meet with artisans!

Fair trade food, snacks and coffee for sampling.

Come celebrate the importance of fair trade and have lots of fun doing it!

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.
