Community Shopping Event at Ten Thousand Villages Evanston

Our friends at Ten Thousand Villages Evanston are hosting a Community Shopping Event on Tuesday December 13th, where you can donate 15% of your purchases to Chicago Fair Trade!

In-Store Shopping Evening
You can shop in person at the Evanston store from 5-8pm on Tuesday 13th December at 915 Chicago Ave, Evanston and enjoy the company of other supporters. Come out, invite your friends, and enjoy shopping while supporting two great fair trade organizations!

Online Shopping
If you can’t come in person, you can still shop online for 48 hours from 4pm on Tuesday 13th December! Go to and follow the short instructions to mark your online sale for Chicago Fair Trade (a no-cost item will be added to your shopping cart). You can choose curbside pickup or shipping for your online purchase.

PLEASE NOTE: You must use the Evanston store website listed above, and not the corporate Ten Thousand Villages website, for this event. Please also mark your purchase as instructed to ensure your donation goes to Chicago Fair Trade.

If you aren’t familiar with Ten Thousand Villages, this store is a Fair Trade retailer of artisan-crafted home decor, personal accessories, clothing, gifts, and more from all around the globe. As a pioneer of fair trade, you can trust that every handmade purchase you make directly impacts the life and community of its maker in a developing country.

The event is finished.
