Favorite Things Gift Shop Boutique Manitowoc WI
Community Gift Shop - New, Homemade, & Fair Trade Gifts
My name is Christine Corrigall and I started the shop Africa Lady.
My husband and I came to Manitowoc, WI to pastor the Cornerstone Community Church. We were both born and raised in South Africa. Coming to Manitowoc was a real culture and weather shock for us. We soon fell in love with the community!
I started Africa Lady 2 years ago in the Treasures Shop. I started with one shelf with only handmade items. I found that I quickly outgrew my shelf and and needed more space.
I visited South Africa in December of 2012 and came back with a lot of handmade items from local people while visiting. Many of the items being scarves and handmade jewelry by artisans. In February of 2013 I found a great opportunity to start my own shop. Favorite Things was born!
Being from South Africa gives me the opportunity to share a different world to people through art and handmade products. Africa Lady supports and promotes the people of South Africa. Being from South Africa and now living in the USA gives me the best of both worlds.
Africa Lady also supports South Africa Cares for Life. This is a non-profit organization which is focused on changing the destiny of HIV/AIDS impacted communities of South Africa.
Favorite Things has a variety of vendors showcasing New, Homemade, & Fair Trade Gifts. I hope you Enjoy My Store!
