About Ten Thousand Villages
The story of Ten Thousand Villages Evanston began in May 1997 with 1,400 square feet and two managers. As our fair trade supporters grew, we doubled our retail space in 2002. After 23 years on Main street, we moved into a larger space on Chicago Avenue in 2019. We’ve continued to grow by building our own e-commerce site and opening a satellite location at The Painted Tree Marketplace in Naperville, IL. Our community’s support and purchases have translated into vital fair income for hundreds of disadvantaged artisans around the world!
