“Great Interesting Place”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We were so happy we tried this place! It has merchandise from all over the world that is so different. Artists make the products and then it is sold in the Ten Thousand Villages shops in America. We signed up for their email and now I want to check out the Atlanta store and the Nashville store. Go find one near you.

“A fabulous store filled with all Fair Trade item!~”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

A A fabulous store that is on the campus, and right by the Retreat Centre where we stayed. The store is filled with a variety of art items that are unique and useful.
If you ever want a place to stay...I highly recommend the Montreat Retreat Center.

“Wide range of houseware and jewelry and garden Fair trade items”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Cool mix of merchandise made around the world. Displayed nicely and workers very helpful. Fair trade coffee and teas and chocolates. Free coffee samples in back. Colorful and upscale items for house and garden along with a creative blend of jewelry. Wall hangings and metal work also. Great store. They do have a catalog for purchase if you want something shipped. Reasonably priced.
