Ten Thousand Villages Fair Trade Pop Up Store
Beauty is created all over the world, but not every artisan has the means or access to get their products to market. Ten Thousand Villages began more than 60 years ago when Edna Ruth Byler began selling handcrafted products from Puerto Rico out of the trunk of her car to help eradicate poverty. Today a global network of social entrepreneurs works to empower artisans in developing countries. CPCC will be hosting a pop up store where you can peruse and buy fair trade items from around the world.
Open 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Open to the public
