We are no longer the retail newcomers to Locke Street. We’re very excited to to see a new Ten Thousand Villages store set up shop just north of us at 162 Locke Street South. The ongoing evolution of Locke Street continues!


We’re excited because Ten Thousand Villages and Citizen Kid have shared values of environmental awareness, fair trade partnerships, and a commitment to quality and craftsmanship. Also chocolate. They have great chocolate. We picked up some hand-made African rain-forest chocolate and a few beautifully illustrated children’s books on Saturday.

For more information on the principles of fair-trade and to see some of the beautiful products for sale at Ten Thousand Villages please visit their website www.tenthousandvillages.ca.

I tried very hard to come up with a clever play-on-words about how many villages it takes to raise a Citizen Kid but came up dry. Please let me know if you come up with something good and I will edit this post and give you all the credit!
