The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall gift shop is an exciting venture reflecting the entrepreneurial spirit of the company whilst promoting the rich tradition of trade and commerce within the city of York and further afield. Our gift shop is the perfect place to pick up bespoke souvenirs, unique gifts and beautiful home ware.
All proceeds from the gift shop help to maintain the Hall, its collections and archive for future generations.

Gift Inspiration all year round


We don’t have an ecommerce site but everything you can see on our website or on our social media channels can be bought via mail order and shipped globally.

Highlighting Local Artists and Supporting British Design


We are proud to support local Yorkshire artists and producers such as print maker Angela Harding, ceramic designer Kate Thorburn and woollen throws manufacturer, Bronte by Moon. Perfect to take home or give as a gift.



Supporting Fair Trade


We are supporting Fair Trade suppliers like Paper High who produce high quality leather goods and St Nicolas who specialise in bespoke Christmas decorations. These products are eco-friendly, ethical gifts and are handmade in India, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Therefore, every time you make a purchase with us, you will not only be buying a beautiful product, you will also be supporting the artisan that created the product

Exploring our Garden


This year we are celebrating all things horticultural. Get inspired by the pretty yet practical Royal Botanic Gardens Kew endorsed soaps, hand sanitisers and hand creams by The English Soap Company, or grow native wildflowers in gardens, balconies and window boxes with the help of Seedball so that we can help increase our bee, butterfly and other garden wildlife populations.
