In my search for a huge mug (I'm talking HUGE), I entered this store. It inspired this post.In a nutshell, Ten Thousand Villages provides fair income to Third World people by marketing their handicrafts and telling their stories in North America. They work with artisans that would otherwise be unemployed. Unfortunately for me, there was no giant mug :( They did have lots of beautiful prices and unique gift ideas. If you ever get the chance, go on in and take a look.
