One of the best little shops with unique gifts. The clerk was very pleasant and helpful and the shop was clean, tidy, and inviting.

This shop is connected with the Mennonite Church. They offer unique and often handmade items from struggling countries. You will find jewelry, wall hangings, cards, coffee, and much more. I have purchased Christmas ornaments and hand carved African animals. It is a really fun place to browse.

I enjoy visiting Ten Thousand Villages and stop frequently to see new items. The store volunteers have stories about the artisans in 35 different countries and are willing to help find a special gift for the special people on my gift giving list. I appreciate being able to purchase gifts that will delight the receiver and help the artisan who made the gift.

Visited the Ten Thousand Villages store in Bluffton for the first time in years and was disappointed. At least it was in better shape than the Et Cetera shop next door. Again, I support the concept of supporting the artists directly but there are limits to what can be done. I don't need a three foot giraffe in my house no matter how it was brought to this country. Some other designs and crafts seem as strange to me as a Peyton Manning bobblehead or a Aaron Rogers cheesehead would be to an African tribesman. Manager completely ignored us the entire time we were in the store although we were the only ones there which also didn't contribute to a purchasing decision no matter how much global good it would have done. Ever since the first of these stores opened, it seemed to me (as a Mennonite) that Mennonites were trying to capture a more upscale niche but at the same time being apologetic about appearing too worldly- a Pier One Imports for the people called the Quiet in the Land.

A bit small, but this organisation and store are amazing!! Inevitably I always buy something, even when I just come in to look around.

I love this store, there is such variety in the product line. Great for gifts and they are gifts that not only benefit those they are given too but benefit those in need in the world and educate others on these needs. Be sure to stop in often.

What do Main Street, Bluffton and Main Street, Ann Arbor have in common? Ten Thousand Villages! This shop is a gem. Living in Bluffton, it is my go-to place for gifts, housewares, cards, etc. It's also just a quick detour off I-75.
