Overflow Coffee Now Selling Products from Ten Thousand Villages

One of our favorite places in the Sloop, Overflow Coffee Bar at 1550 S. State, recently sent us an email letting us know that they're offering a new service at their spot:
Overflow Coffee Bar is now a retailer of products from Ten Thousand Villages. Ten Thousand Villages is a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted gifts, home decor, jewelry, personal accessories, textiles, art & sculpture from across the globe. Featuring products from more than 130 artisan groups in some 38 countries, we are part of a network of more than 390 retail outlets throughout the United States selling Ten Thousand Villages products. For more than 60 years, Ten Thousand Villages has been establishing long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans lack opportunities for stable income. All artisans are fairly paid for their products. 
For more information about Ten Thousand Villages at Overflow, please contact Ryan at Ten Thousand Villages products will be available on Saturdays from 8:00am to 6:00pm. As sales increase, we'll add new hours. 
For the month of August, we're donating 5% of all gross sales from these new products to the Greater South Loop Association to help make the Bash on Wabash a success. We'll also have Ten Thousand Village products available at the Bash on Wabash, August 25 and 26.
