Downtown Crossing is now home to more than huge retail chains with mass produced clothing and food. Downtown is trying develop a more upscale appeal with eco-friendly hotspots like Boston Common Coffee Company. And now there is also a Ten Thousand Villages
! Ten Thousand Villages sells fairly traded artisan items from around the world. From organic coffee and chocolate, to baskets, jewelry, pillows, and candles, there is quite a variety of ethical and sustainable goods. I highly suggest stopping by while trying to finish up all of your last minute holiday shopping!
