Welcome to Ten Thousand Villages St. Paul! We are a fair trade store - all of our goods are handmade by producers who are paid fairly for the work they do. By shopping at our local nonprofit store, you support artisans and farmers in developing countries. As a result of earning a fair and sustainable income, parents are able to send their kids to school, buy more nutritious food, and support their local economies. Some of our artisan partners specifically focus on employing marginalized people such as individuals with special needs, leprosy, HIV/AIDS, and survivors of sex work and trafficking. More information on fair trade can be found here: http://wfto.com/fair-trade/10-principles-fair-trade .

Our products encompass jewelry, personal accessories, textiles, home decor, books, coffee and tea, chocolate, cards, gifts, and ornaments (during the holiday season). Below are some snapshots of recent new items.

Parking is available in the lot behind our store. From Selby, turn down Mackubin or Kent. Our lot has a big blue container and is marked Carlsen and Frank Architects and Omnium Bike Shop.
