Our 2020 Christmas Cards are now available for purchase.

A pack of 10 cards and envelopes is priced at $11.95 with sales tax and shipping (if applicable) extra. The message inside reads: “Wishing you peace and joy at the holidays and in the coming year.”
 
Emily Smucker Beidler, a store consignor who is well known locally for her fraktur-inspired illuminations, created our card this year. The original artwork is also available for purchase. Emily incorporated the King James translation of Psalm 137:6, “Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah, we found it in the fields of the wood” into her design.
 
Cards are available for contactless pickup outside the store or by shipment. Please contact David Ganse at (717) 733-2592 or c-dganseii@pa.gov to order cards or to submit a bid on the original artwork.
 
As the holidays approach, we will be highlighting a variety of seasonal items in the Museum Store. Like our Facebook page to stay up to date with featured items and specials.

The Museum Store at Ephrata Cloister is filled with a wide variety of locally handcrafted items inspired by the fine craftsmanship and beautiful details of the historic site.  Inside a mid-1800s barn, a large selection of one-of-a-kind items is waiting, sure to please any age or budget.  You’ll discover more here than just keepsakes or souvenirs, but instead, treasures that preserve the traditions of the past for your friends and family—even for yourself.
