All You Need Is Love

  • CJ Gift Shoppe

    Specializing in all handmade, sustainably and ethically sourced goods, we are happy to bring you one-of-a-kind pieces made by one of our local artisans or Fair Trade Organizations. Every piece has a story and gives back by supporting a local artisan, good business and social practices, or  by supporting a nonprofit that practices fair and ethical business practices and gives back to the artisan's community.

  • Why Fair Trade?

    It’s easier than you think to create change. While the U.S. represents 5% of the world’s population we consume 29% of the world’s resources. We are the largest consumer nation in the world. Imagine our impact when we shopped more consciously.

    When you choose to purchase Fair Trade products, you are endorsing an economic system that provides opportunities for international farmers, artisans and workers to lift themselves out of poverty Fair Trade seeks to enable economic development through equitable trading partnerships. Fair Trade ensures consumers that the products they purchase were grown, harvested, crafted and traded in ways that improve lives and protect the environment.

    "A really neat gift shop where you can find all things local and handmade! There are candles, clothes for kids and babies, blankets, pizza cutters shaped like bicycles, wind chimes, coasters for cups, wood and metal earrings, necklaces, bracelets, mugs, honey, jams, live flowers, book, so many things! Every direction you turn there are so many things to look at! Everything is so beautiful and made locally. The prices are a bit higher but again, that's because everything is made individually and in high quality. I love this store and the woman who was working today is super friendly and will answer all your questions! I will be back."

    "This darling little shoppe is worth driving to, no matter where you live. Not kidding. The wonderful woman who owns the place (Julia) is as delightful as the merchandise she carries. Much of the inventory is from far away places, all purchased through fair trade (an absolute MUST in my world); she also carries items made (by hand!) from local artists. Treasures abound AND the prices are terrific too. If you need a gift, whether for yourself or someone else, THIS is the spot to shop. In all, one of THE BEST gift shoppes in San Diego County."

    "I received a gift from CJ Gift Shoppe and loved it so much I just ordered one for my mom! I had to share. Since we are in shut down, this made it very easy too. I have not gone to this shop in person...yet, but I will.

    I LOVED my box! The avocado bag WORKS! It is so special and cute. The snacks- delicious! I loved my candle, and the honey with the dipper--- just perfect! They did help me in the chat right away on line. They are very kind. I highly recommend their Give Love Box. It took no time to order and now a gift is on the way for my mom's birthday.
    It will make someone's day!
    If you want to support a great place...HERE it is! CJ Gift Shoppe.
    Super special!"
