About Us

Evangely has been involved with ministry work for many years. When she was ready to enter into the venture of becoming a small business owner, it was clear to her that the nature of the business had to be Fair Trade. Fair trade is a method of commerce where artisans, from developing countries, are paid fair, sustainable wages for their work. Fair trade promotes respect for human dignity, empowers disadvantaged people, particularly women, protects the environment and protects workers’ rights – no child labor!

At the time when Evangely was ready to start a small business she worked for a humanitarian agency that promoted Fair Trade. She did a lot of research as to what type of business, product and possible locations to open. One night, the idea of fair trade came to her and she felt very inspired by it. She realized this would become her new ministry!

On October of 2010, Around the World Gifts was opened at a kiosk in Horton Plaza, in beautiful downtown San Diego, CA. At the beginning of 2011, the business moved to Old Town San Diego. Being a small business owner has not been easy but with the support of her husband, Gerrit, the business continues to survive in this economy. We also continue to participate at local events to help promote and support fair trade in San Diego!

We thank you, in advance, not only supporting a local, small business but for helping struggling families throughout the world!

We are a Fair Trade Gift Shop located in Historic Old Town San Diego across the street from Old Town State Park. Our address is 2627 Congress Street, near the intersection of Congress and Twiggs Streets. Come on in and visit us! Online shopping is also available. Please visit our web Storefront!
