Ten Thousand Villages Evanston is a nonprofit, fair trade retailer that was established in May 1997. Our community's support and purchases have translated into vital fair income for hundreds of disadvantaged artisans around the world! We are proud to continue that commitment to fair trade and our global artisan partners over 25 years later.

We look forward to welcoming you into the new space in April and thank you for supporting our new adventure! Our Evanston store has a wide variety of ethical goods and gifts for you to explore - including unique home decor, jewelry and personal accessories, fair trade apparel, games, kids’ toys, soaps, singing bowls, coffee, tea, chocolate and much more.

Our knowledgeable volunteers are the core of our store and will gladly help you choose a perfect gift for everyone on your list - and a treat for yourself. You will enjoy a unique shopping experience which in turn will help an artisan family earn a living. What a happy combination!
