About Us


The Village is a responsibly sourced, fair trade gift shop and home decor retailer.

We believe that people want ways to shop responsibly in regard to people and planet, but don't have time and in same cases, opportunity, to carefully source things themselves.  We provide a beautiful and welcoming environment with unique options that take the work and worry out of the shopping experience for our customers.  

We partner  with vendors who source the highest quality products directly from communities around the world. By purchasing responsibly, you are ensuring  that the artisans receive a fair wage for their products, contributing to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions, and  securing the rights of marginalized workers. 


Fair Trade is more than just trading:

It proves that greater justice in world trade is possible.

It highlights the need for change in the rules and practice of  conventional trade and shows how a successful business can also put people first.

It is a tangible contribution to the fight against poverty, climate change and economic crisis.


Come shop with us.

We greatly appreciate your support of these communities and your support of change. Please come by and see our incredible selection of beautiful gifts from around the globe.
