Shop local… and support community-based initiatives around the world
Looking for a special gift for a birthday, anniversary, holiday or other special occasion? Come on in and check out the Mariposa’s international gift shop – with perfect gifts for all ages hand-made by artisans from around the world… and also right here in Peterborough!
And, when you make a purchase in the Mariposa Gift Shop, your purchase supports community-based initiatives around the world:
Purchase a gorgeous silk or hand-woven scarf, and you’ll help support an after-school music program in Rishikesh, India. Buy a bag of Mountain Violet Sticky Rice and you’ll support community growers in the Philippines. Choose a singing bowl, incense, or prayer flag and you’ll support artisans in Nepal, Tibet, and India.
We have earrings and clothing from Bali, dolls from Guatemala and South Africa, musical instruments from Kenya – as well as hand-made goods from U.S. artisans from Peterborough to California – and more!
Drop in today (26 Main Street in Peterborough, 11am-5pm Tuesday through Sunday) or, if you’re from out of town, call the front desk at 603-924-4555 to inquire about our newest gift items and mail order options.
And of course, don’t forget the gift of membership. A Mariposa membership at the $100 level supports Mariposa’s work to promote cross-cultural understanding in New Hampshire while also offering free admission to hundreds of museums across North America, making it a great gift for anyone on your list, no matter where they live. A family membership gives the gift of time together to a family you know. A $45 individual membership offers free or discounted admission and gift shop purchases for an active adult on your list.
