About Us

Because Every Handmade Object Has a Life of Meaning Behind It

Ten Thousand Villages is more than a store. We're a global maker‑to‑market movement. We're a way for you to shop with intention for ethically-sourced wares — and to share in the joy of connecting with makers around the world.

As a pioneer of fair trade, we do business differently, putting people and planet first. That means you can trust that every handmade purchase you make from us directly impacts the life and community of its maker in a developing country.

Stop by our new store at 1341 S Atherton and discover ethically sourced gifts, home décor, jewelry, personal accessories, art, and other treasures. We have a great selection of products and convenient and free parking.

Outreach Opportunities and Community Shopping Events

Did you know that we do educational events and community outreach? If you are part of a school, church, or other organization, contact our store manager (814) 954-5043 or about having a special event either at your location or at our store on South Atherton. We are happy to work with groups of all sizes; no group is too small.

We would also like to work with your group to schedule a community shopping event—a special evening in our store where a percentage of all sales goes back to your local civic or community organization or church mission.
