The items in Ten Thousand Villages are gorgeous and help artisans throughout the world. The kids both found need souvenirs of our trip--I could have spent another hour looking at all of the items for sale. Beautiful.

Small boutique shop with pieces/collections from all over the world. The staff was lovely, welcoming and inviting. Great to walkout the back to the lake/reservoir. Building that the shop is in has a public restroom that is indoors

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.
