Cariboo Bethel Church will host its annual Ten Thousand Villages sale in the church basement on Nov. 22, 23, and 24.

The Ten Thousand Villages organization works with more than 100 artisan groups in more than 25 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and more to bring people in developed countries such as Canada fairly traded hand-made gift items. Expect to see all sorts of global treasures from musical instruments to pottery, jewellery, baskets, games, toys, linens, spices and chocolate.

The Ten Thousand Villages organization builds long-term relationships with artisans that are based on mutual understanding and respect. The artisans earn a fair wage and receive the opportunity for a better quality of life for people in developing countries. The village is open Thursday, Nov. 22 from 3 to 8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 23, from 3 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Stay for an ethnic Mennonite luncheon after your shopping trip.
