The Schifferstadt gift shop has something for visitors of all ages, from our colonial-era games to our local handmade pottery from the Frederick Pottery Guild. When you visit the museum, we invite you to browse our bookshelves to learn about local history and legends, pick up Schifferstadt merchandise to remember your visit, or choose from our Scherenschnitte (German paper cutting) stationary to write friends and family. Follow your nose to our locally produced lotions, soaps, and beeswax candles, or follow your stomach to our selection of McCutcheon's jams, jellies, and sodas. Make sure to check back often for our seasonal offerings, especially during the holidays when we feature traditional German Christmas ornaments of all shapes and sizes.

Members receive a 10% discount at the gift shop so make sure to join today!
