About Us

Ten Thousand Villages' mission is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term fair trading relationships.

We are a non-profit, fair trade store located in Lincoln's Haymarket. We were started here in Lincoln over 30 years ago by a small group of citizens who wanted to make a difference in the developing world by providing a marketplace for fairly traded handicrafts. 90% of our staff are volunteers and we are run by a local board of directors.
