Ten Thousand Villages Harrisonburg is more than a store. For over 25 years we have empowered the Harrisonburg community to make a difference and shop with intention for ethically-sourced products. We are a global maker-to-market movement, creating opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income through long-term, fair trading relationships.
You can trust that every handmade purchase you make from us directly impacts the life and community of its makers.
We are committed to four key ethical principles:
Ten Thousand Villages has been putting people and planet first
We believe that we can break the cycle of poverty when we work together. Our Vision is that one day all artisans in developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect and be able to live a life of quality.
We are proud to be a part of a vibrant community that strives to promote dignity and respect in the lives of artisans all over the world and in our community. With the help of our dedicated volunteers, board members, staff and customers we can continue to give back by supporting more artisans and bringing their experiences to our community.
