Online Shop

Welcome to this virtual extension of Down to Earth Gifts, our shop at our Motherhouse, featuring artisan products made by the Sisters or cultivated on our grounds. 

Since our founding in 1650 in France, the Sisters of St. Joseph have maintained artisan trades to sustain themselves and their ministries. In France, they made lace. Today in Baden, we tend bees and make creams, note cards, story bowls, gift boxes and more.
