Mission Statement

To create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products to our markets through long-term, fair-trading relationships.


Ten Thousand Villages State College is a non-profit organization that provides a marketplace for artisans in developing countries so that they may earn fair wages and work in safe environments.

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, free parking.
