I recently stumbled across this AMAZING Etsy store of all things handmade by the All Saints Monastery in Calverton, NY. I first heard about the monastery from the abbess, who was giving the profits of a recently published book back to the orphanage in India for educational purposes. I then recently saw a friend who was wearing one of their adorable bracelets. I still had no idea they were on Etsy until I stopped by the monastery’s website to buy a children’s book for my god-child. My purchase directed me to this shop, which I absolutely love. An enterprising women’s monastery who seeks to help the orphanage and other vulnerable communities! And they named their soaps “All for Nun!” Here are some of my favorite items.
1. Hand-crafted detergent free rose soap made by the sisters of the monastery.
2. Prayer rocks
3. A bundle of beeswax candles
4. A variety of semi-precious stone beaded prayer bracelets with great packaging. My favorites-lapis and jade.
