Welcome to Charitable Union

The Gift Shop @ Charitable Union

Did you know that Charitable Union has a Gift Shop?  A group of talented and dedicated volunteers make quilts, sweater mittens, potato bags, T-shirt quilts, big foot pillows and lots more. These creations are wonderful and are very reasonably priced. It’s a “must shop” place for the Holidays (and any time of the year!)

If you have never shopped at The Gift Shop you are missing one of the best little shops in Battle Creek. Come and visit! You’ll be happy you did. Right now we have a large assortment of Christmas decorations and Christmas gifts. After Christmas sale will be from December 28 – 31.

On another note. The gift of a T-shirt quilt will preserve memories of sports, family reunions, travel or school years for years to come. Let us make your T-shirts into a lasting, usable quilt.

Anywhere from 4 to 35 shirts (Throw to Extra Long Twin size). They are machine quilted and flannel backed. Prices start at $66 and up depending on the size of the quilt you order.

Call Jenny at the Gift Shop @ Charitable Union for more information 269-964-7234.
