Safe Harbors

From ports of call around the world to the safe harbor of your home, these gifts and accents celebrate the docks and wharves — the spaces where the work is done. Inspired by rope and riggings, wood weathered by winds and waves, storied crafts anchor this seaworthy style.

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Montreat, NC

Ten Thousand Villages in Montreat, N.C., first opened in 1983 as a seasonal Fair Trade store.  Since then, we have expanded our store, our outreach and educational activities, and our scope of operation to a year-round store. 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.

In addition to providing Fair Trade products, Ten Thousand Villages in Montreat works with and supports local non-profit community groups with events and fund-raisers.  For more information, please contact the store at 828-669-1406 or by email:  montreat@tenthousandvillages.com.

Samples of our Fair Trade coffee and tea are available every day in the store, along with world music selections from Putumayo.
