5th Gospel Retreats - Olive woodcraft items sourced from local businesses in Bethlehem.
Palestine Solidarity Campaign Shop - Activism paraphernalia, stationary and clothing items
Atfaluna Deaf Children Society Craft Shop - Clothing items for children and adults, handicrafts and furniture, Gaza-based (WARNING: Contact them first before buying to be sure whether or not they can ship out of Gaza as it might be difficult or impossible because of the blockade). This is my favourite shop and I happened to visit them in Gaza. The products reflect an amazing creativity in using Palestinian cultural motifs in a variety of products. The association has been run by a great American woman for decades. I hope they can ship out of Gaza.
