- Ten Thousand VillagesFirst to ReviewNov 22, 2013
I had heard a lot about Ten Thousand Villages before coming to the Pasadena branch, namely that it was a great store to get unique presents for those friends that are a little tricky to shop for. Their crafts are fair trade and made by artisan groups all over the world, from Columbia to Nepal, and include jewelry, home goods, cookbooks, and so many other things. I wanted to buy almost everything I saw, especially a cute trio of silver butter knives from Africa. Prices are reasonable and it makes you feel good knowing that your money is going back into a worthwhile cause. And any time shopping can make me feel good rather than guilty, I'm in.
