Browse in our unique gift shop where you will find fair-trade gifts from around the world, as well as items made by local artists. Enjoy our selection of books, cards, stoles, bumper stickers, jewelry and other gifts for all ages.
The Gift Shop at the Point purchases many of our gift items from fair-trade distributors, among them Serrv, Ten Thousand Villages, Partners for Just Trade, Mayan Hands, Upavim Crafts, and Equal Exchange. This means that by purchasing the high quality items that are available, you take part in alleviating poverty in remote villages. With your dollars, you support safe & clean working environments and bring human dignity to many of the world's poor. Visit our pinterest board to see what kinds of things you can find here.
We've been working to have items from different religious traditions. Because of the presence of our multifaith residential community, we have items from those traditions. If there's something you're interested in seeing, let us know!
Crosses for every Personality
The shop carries crosses made by Rev Woody Shook. The cross of Christ is always at the center of his crosses; to this he creatively combines symbols and images with specially selected woods. Each cross is a distinctive statement of faith. He has also recently started making other symbols for us. Stop by and see this great collection.
Books for All Ages
The Shop at the Point stocks books for theologians and students as well as a thoughtful selection of books on spirituality and women's concerns. We carry books for youth and teens and award winning picture books for the littlest ones.
