|Does any other Ten Thousand Villages store greet customers with chile ristras at the door?|
|A thank you for your purchase|
As is the case in most Ten Thousand Villages stores around the country, you can find wall decor, kitchen and dining items, home accents, scarves and bags, baskets and many other fair-trade items. And of course,we can't forget the coffee!
It's great to have a store that offers fair-trade products in the Albuquerque-Santa Fe area, filling the void that was left when Peacecraft closed its doors a few weeks ago. Store manager Trish Padilla, who is responsible for the creating the beautiful displays, said this particular This Ten Thousand Villages store has been around since July of 2012. So there was some overlap with Peacecraft. The store in the City Different is actually owned by Ten Thousand Villages. Some Ten Thousand villages locations are contract stores--where a local group or individual owns them, but Ten Thousand Villages provides the inventory and sets the guidelines.
