Serendipity

This jewelry and accessories collection shines where unexpected materials meet and colors combine. Get cozy with coincidence in warm and woolen fabrics and scarves that are slubbed with twists of fate. Follow a road striped and straight, or take a turn on paisley’s swirling fortunes. Wrapped in pattern, wrought by hand, writ with luck, this collection is destined with design.

Ten Thousand Villages helps to preserve crafting traditions passed down through generations, connecting customers with other cultures and their artistic heritage and creating beauty in the world.

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages Walnut Street in Philadelphia, PA

Ten Thousand Villages Walnut Street in Philadelphia, 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 Philadelphia opened in July of 2001.

As a nonprofit store, volunteers are crucial to our success, helping us to keep our overhead costs lower, which allows us to purchase more from artisans. Apply now to join our fun-filled volunteer positions - greeting and interacting with customers, unpacking and checking orders, assisting with displays and more. We welcome volunteers any time of the year.

Women's Friendship Day & International Peace Day - September 18, 2014 - September 21, 2014

This year, join us as we again celebrate both Women’s Friendship Day and the International Day of Peace on September 21. Both holidays concentrate on and embrace the power that peaceful relationships and dynamic partnerships can produce for both women and other people around the world. Here at Ten Thousand Villages, in honor of these holidays, we invite you to join us in celebration of our female artisan partners and the power of female relationships to drive forward peaceful dialogue.

Please take a moment between now and September 21 to come share your wishes and hopes for peace on a paper dove that you can keep with you or add to our window display.

Also through September 21, when you bring a female friend with you to our store and at least one of you makes a purchase, enjoy, as our thanks, a free gift of sage soap while supplies last. These soaps are made by the artisans of Sindyanna of Galilee, a peace and reconciliation project that brings Arab and Jewish women together for women’s economic empowerment. Thank you so much for your support. We look forward to seeing you in the store throughout the next few days.
