Window Shopper — Taking a look inside four great stores
By Claudia Bordo

‘Tis the season to be jolly. And here on the Hill there are lots of reasons to be jolly. The Avenue is aglow with festive lights and the shop windows are beautifully decorated. Stag and Doe Nights on Wednesdays are always a crowd pleaser. The atmosphere is perfect and gets everyone in the mood. Best of all, your holiday needs can be met right here on the Avenue… check out these great shops.

Ten Thousand Villages


Founded over 60 years ago, Ten Thousand Villages provides vital, fair income to Third World artisans by marketing their handmade crafts. This income helps pay for food, education, health care and housing. You can feel good about shopping here. The craftsmanship is amazing and there is something for everyone. Ideas for gifts are everywhere. The many beautiful Christmas tree ornaments are intricate and unique. The jewelry is beautiful and affordable and the selection is huge. Ten Thousand Villages carries home decor items, tabletop accessories, global treasures and stationery. The musical instruments are clever and appealing. The shop will put together a pretty gift basket with good foods like organic chocolate bars, a pound bag of their rich and bold coffee, a delicious soup mix and other goodies. Or you can get creative and fill a basket with some personal accessories. There is even a gift registry here. This store is helping other nonprofit organizations on Tuesdays and Thursdays until December 2nd by staying open until 9 p.m. and 15 percent of the purchases made between 5 and 9 will be donated. The vision for Ten Thousand Villages is that one day all artisans in developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect and be able to live a life of quality. Items are available on their well-designed web site, www.tenthousandvillages.com. Help them keep up the good work! Fair prices and great items… you can’t go wrong. 8331 Germantown Ave., 215-242-3040.

El Quetzal


The El Quetzal is the national bird of Guatemala. It’s pretty and colorful and so is this shop. Adina Birnbaum, her husband Val Gorski and partner Bill Shields are the owners and the talent behind this successful place. They feature crafts from the United States and around the world. The clothes are hip and trendy, different than what you find at a mall, and they get new merchandise in every week. There is a good variety and a large selection of gifts here, and almost everything is under $100. Lots of cool jewelry and the home goods are fabulous, like Le Cadeaux; this is melamine serving-ware, which is both beautiful and durable. Delicate hand blown glass, porcelain vases and hand carved bowls grace the shelves. You can buy a witches ball here and get rid of all the bad energy in your home. Not a bad idea. El Quetzal carries great body care products, wall hangings, greeting cards, pillows, mugs and hand painted martini glasses. Beaded handbags, frames, ultra soft reversible rayon scarves and more are available here, and gifts receive a box and ribbon. At the end of November, El Quetzal will open up a new store at Suburban Square in Ardmore. Congratulations and good luck to El Quetzal. Hours are Monday to Saturday 10 to 6, Sunday 12 to 5 with extended hours for the holidays. 8427 Germantown Ave., 215-247-6588

Old City fabric firm to open a temporary shop on the Hill
by Lou Mancinelli
More than 20 years ago, a young University of Pennsylvania architecture graduate lived in a barn in Chestnut Hill without electricity struggling to make it as a painter. After a short time, he realized he would need more money than he had available to him in order to pursue life as an artist. It would take years, he thought, of diligent practice before he might be good enough to earn a living painting.

by Jennifer Katz

“It’s the best position I’ve ever had,” said Malley, who spent 22 years a professional potter and previously worked as administrative assistant.
