Joel Weidner, the Board Chairman of the State College Ten Thousand Villages store, showed off a bronze singing bowl made in Nepal.
“They’re really cool. They can be used for meditation or just as beautiful pieces of art,” Weidner said.
The bowl is one of many fair-trade international goods sold at the nonprofit store that opened on South Atherton Street last month. On Friday, the store will kick off a welcome week to celebrate its opening.
Weidner says events will include a ribbon cutting, meditation sessions, a drum circle and musical performances.
