This Christmas I’m trying to shop fair trade, local and ethical as much as possible.
I love going to Christmas craft sales and finding the perfect handmade item. But it’s also great to go to a store like Ten Thousand Villages, which is actually the oldest and largest Fair Trade organization in North America.
Ten Thousand Villages sells artisan-crafted personal accessories, home decor and gift items from around the globe. They have the prettiest scarves and I have always had great luck finding beautiful jewelry there as well.
The scarf and cuff in these photos are both from Ten Thousand Villages and I have to say the scarf is one of the softest and most versatile pieces I own. It’s the perfect gift for any lady on your Christmas list, whether its your mom, grandma or even your sister or best friend. (I have to list everyone so that the person I’m giving it to will still be surprised!)
Oh and they also have great coffee, tea, and chocolate which all make perfect stocking stuffers for anyone on your list.
Have you ever been to Ten Thousand Villages? Check out their website to find a location near you!
I couldn’t resist including this one…little girl sneaking into my “model shot”. Ha ha!
