ten thousand villages
i'm ashamed it took me so long to post about pasadena's lovely little fair trade store. not only is this a fantastic little place to shop that is filled with fair trade artwork and handicrafts from around the globe, it is connected to me through my church tradition - yup, the pasadena location of ten thousand villages is actually part of a larger chain of stores that is operated by mennonite central committee, the mission arm of the mennonite church.
check out this not-so-recent la times article on the ten thousand villages movement.
