Like you may be, we’re sheep folks, tracing our woolly Wisconsin roots back to the 1850’s and a flock of two hundred Merinos to the day we said goodbye to the last of our Dorset Horns in 2018. Adding sheepy gifts to our ovine lives came naturally, bringing us good friends from the far corners of the country.
From what was begun in 1978 by two “showring widows” making the rounds of sheep shows around the Midwest, Ewesful Gifts has grown to be your online source for sheep gifts of all kinds!
How It Started:
Ewesful Gifts began as a partnership with good friend and shepherd’s wife Barb Douglas, with our first show the 1979 Wisconsin Sheep Industry Conference. When Barb decided to move on from the business, Carol Lee, a shepherdess in her own right, joined me and by the time Carol decided to move on in her life we were doing shows across the country.
Ewesful Gifts is a vendor at two major shows, the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival and the Wisconsin State Fair, and at several smaller events like the Midwest Fiber Frolic and Wisconsin Alpaca Fest. At the same time we continue to offer a wide variety of sheep, Border collie and alpaca-related gift items through our online store.
Ewesful Gifts is your all-in-one shopping experience for "sheepish" gifts of all kinds - clothing, calendars, home accessories, children's books about sheep and border collies, plus stationary and note cards. If it has a sheep, we probably have it. You'll find these categories on our Store Page:
Calendars; Notes; Christmas Cards; Body Care; Accents for the Home; Clothing; Wool Products; Sweet Deals and Kid's Page.
