Tidal Treasures

With every ebb and flow, the sea bestows upon us precious gifts — ocean jewels nestled in the beach. The shimmering shoreline and its bits of earthy opulence are the inspiration for our newest collection of home accents.


Manna on Mondays & Food Cupboard Fridays

On Mondays & Fridays only, non-perishable foods (dry food basics, peanut butter and canned foods), personal care items (deodorant, soap, feminine care products, toothbrushes, toothpaste) and baby basic needs (diapers, wipes, formula, food) are collected in our store at 101 West State Street in Media, PA.(Donors who wish to shop in our store that day will save 15% on their purchase excluding all other discounts; and we thank them in advance for their generosity.)


Manna on Monday

Collection items are then delivered to or picked up by the Food Cupboard within 24 to 48 hours for distribution to nutritionally marginalized families in the Media community. Currently, 1st United Methodist Church Food Bank serves upwards of 65 to 80 families weekly. For more information, please feel free to drop into our store to speak with an associate or contact us at media@tenthousandvilages.com placing 'Manna' in the subject line.


Food Cupboard Friday

Collection items are then delivered to or picked up by the Giving Garden Pantry within 24 to 48 hours for distribution to nutritionally marginalized families in the Delaware County community. Currently, the Giving Garden Pantry works to assist the 1 out of 3 children in the county that go to bed hungry every night. For more information, please feel free to drop into our store to speak with an associate or contact us at media@tenthousandvilages.com placing 'Pantry' in the subject line; or Joy Kieffer via www.lifewerks.org.

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Media, PA

Ten Thousand Villages in Media, 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.

The store is located at the corner of West State and South Olive Streets in suburban downtown Media, PA, First Fair Trade Town in the United States and the home of 2nd Saturday, a monthly arts and music stroll that takes place between 6 and 9 pm. Please visit www.visitmediapa.com to help plan your visit to town, and www.media.tenthousandvillages to check for special events here in our store
