Fashion You Can Feel Good About

Thanks to Thea Wood for mentioning Ten Thousand Villages of Austin in her Austin Style Blog!

—————————————

Ten Thousand Villages
1317 S. Congress Avenue, 

This boutique is as eco-friendly and trade conscious as it gets.  The prices are VERY reasonable (especially given their prime locale) and the cashier can give you a detailed background on each item’s origin and materials.  I also want to plug the Austin Fair Trade Film Festival tomorrow (Saturday) at the South Alamo Drafthouse. Just think, you can contribute to world peace by purchasing a chic accessory and catching a movie!!  Here are some of their gems:

$54 Indonesian woven handbag

$34 Tagua Nut Necklace & Earrings
$20 Mutuba tree bark hat

Total: $ 108
