Well Hello!

According to the amount of purchases over the last few weeks, many of you are enjoying shopping in The Village!

What we would like to know is this: Do you love what you bought? Did it ship quickly? Was it just like you pictured? Shopkeepers would love to know what you are thinking. If they are doing a great job, tell them! If something needs tweaking, here is your chance to give them a nudge in the right direction. Leave a review! They help others know what your shopping experience was like and if you appreciate the product you purchased. Taking note of reviews is one of the ways Shopkeepers can keep making improvements in their shops.

Make sure you have made an account and are signed in when you buy something. Then when you are ready to leave a review, you go to the product that you bought. Under the picture of the product, there is a list of links. Description, Shipping, Additional Information, Reviews, Vendor Info, and More Product etc.

Click on Reviews and then you can leave your review!

 

 

Thanks so much for helping to make The Village a great place to shop!

Clarification!!

Apr 7, 2018

Hello to All!

The Village has a very important clarification to make.  We fear we have been misunderstood by some.  This is NOT an exclusive website, and we had no intention of portraying that attitude!  We welcome all to come and shop.  If friends or neighbors have an interest to join and start a shop they are welcome.  All we ask is that they comply with the same guidelines that all our shops do.  The Mennonite people are not an exclusive people and we truly want to reflect that here in the Village.  In our initial announcement we made the statement that this site was “by our people, for our people”.  This was said with no thought of occlusion, but simply meant that a couple of Mennonite gals started it, and we wanted to offer a service to our people, a place where they could be found and get their name out there.  We are sincerely sorry if we offended anyone by this or gave the wrong impression!  Thanks for understanding! We are learning together as we go!
