Ten Thousand Villages


One of my favorite places to find gifts is Ten Thousand Villages. Here is a small description from Wikipedia "Ten Thousand Villages is a nonprofit fair trade organization that markets handcrafted products made by disadvantaged artisans from more than 120 artisan groups in more than 35 countries."
