Since its foundation, the Madonna House Apostolate has accepted donations of all kinds, and has worked to distribute these goods to the poor. In 1964, as it became apparent that the international missions of the apostolate required financial as well as material aid, Catherine Doherty opened the Madonna House Gift Shop here in Combermere. All of the items in our gift shop are donated, and all of the proceeds from their sale go to the poor.

Thousands pass through each year — and for every item sold another has come in donation to replace it. For more than 40 years we have seen this miracle of hidden generosity, and through it the poor have been helped in many parts of the world. Anyone is welcome to donate items for the shop, thus continuing the miracle of love.

Vintage, Collectibles & Fine Gift Items

Our main Gift Shop features an eclectic collection of fine items worth exploring. Fine china and fine jewelry, crystal, religious items and much more await our happy shoppers.

Crafts by Madonna House Staff

Sheep from our own Madonna House farm contribute the wool that we use for felting, knitting, and other wool crafts. These items are for sale as well as candles, hand thrown pottery, and an assortment of greeting cards.

Madonna House Publications Store
Art Gallery

On display in the art gallery are original works of art by Madonna House staff, fine art paintings and art prints (both framed and unframed), icons and statuary.

You can view some of the works of our Madonna House artists by visiting our “Artists” page.

The Small Shop

The Small Shop is a favorite, a great place to find a bargain! A quaint, original pioneer house filled with household items, curios, costume jewelry, and children’s toys.

Used Bookshop

Whether you like mysteries, fiction, history, spiritual books, children’s books, or something older and rarer, you are sure to find the perfect used book for your reading list here. Proceeds from the Bookshop support the Madonna House field house in Russia.
