What can you say about a store that is trying to support emerging economies with fair practice? It's a great place to find a unique gift and the prices are incredibly reasonable.

This shop has some beautiful hand-made items and some funky and creative gift ideas. The merchandise comes from all over the world, and the people that make it receive a fair price for their labor and supplies. Fair trade means the consumer pays for the quality (as opposed to Wal-Mart where the cheap prices are due to the exploitation of workers), but these items are worth the price.

Ten Thousand Villages works to bring handmade crafts to Portlanders from South America and Africa. The store is colorful, intriguting, and you can find a lot of decorating ideas. I like knowing my purchase is helping those in less industrialized nations.

We just purchased a beatiful side table made out of salvaged Indonesian hardwoods with a lovely granite top. Although the retail clerks at the store are volunteers, we received some of the best service that we've ever experienced in PDX. All are questions were answered in a friendly and knowledgeable manner. It's nice to nice know that you can buy quality merchandise that supports a great cause - fairly paid Third World employees. Shop here and recommend it to friends!
