Ten Thousand Villages artisan sale ends

Ten Thousand Villages artisan sale ends

For over 20 years, Smithereens held a Ten Thousand Villages artisan sale to support local charities.

Editor,

For over 20 years, a group of Smithers residents hosted a Ten Thousand Villages artisan sale. With the sales of fair trade items from all over the world, we were able to raise money for local charities. Due to the high cost of shipping, Ten Thousand Villages can no longer support these sales.

I would like to thank all those who supported this sale over the years and at the same time supported people in need in our community. If you wish to support the good work of Ten Thousand Villages, please go to their website where you will see everything you can buy online and continue to support artisans from all over the world.

Thanks for your support over the years,

Anne-Marie Findlay
