    The Central High Museum Shop is like many National Park Service shops and features gifts and books which tell the stories and commemorate the history of the Little Rock Nine and the desegregation of Little Rock Central High School.

    There is a collection of commemorative items as well as civil rights and black history books. I didn't buy anything at the store, but I could also buy on line if I wanted to do so.

    What to buy: Books such as "Central In Our Lives: Voices from Little Rock Central High School 1957-1959" ($24.95) which is a compilation of accounts from white students who attended Central during the crisis.

    DVD: Nine From Little Rock (photo 3). Or a T-shirt for $14.95 (photo 4).

    Ten Thousand Villages: A Great Place to Buy Some Gifts!

    At the Ten Thousand Villages

    My friend took me to this shop awhile ago and we just went back last month. It's got a lot of great gift items at reasonable prices and the best part is it is a shop supporting free trade with other countries. All of the items are marked with what country they came from. This is what their website says about the store:

    'Ten Thousand Villages is part of a worldwide movement striving to practice fair trade. We are one of over 300 IFAT members in 70 countries. IFAT members agree that fair trade is an alternative approach to conventional international trade. It is a trading partnership aimed at sustainable development for excluded and disadvantaged producers. It seeks to do this by providing better trading conditions, by raising awareness and by campaigning.

    The IFAT key principles of fair trade include:
    Creating opportunities for economically disadvantaged producers
    Transparency and accountability
    Capacity building
    Payment of a fair price
    Gender equity
    Good working conditions
    Care for the environment '

    I also like the fact that there is a nice variety and some things were similar from the last time I was there, but I think many things are always changing, so there is always something new to look at. There are various locations - 2 in Texas, but none close to where I live in Dallas, so the Little Rock location is the only one I have been to. Check their website for other locations!

    What to buy: There is a lot of cute jewelry, all sorts of gift items, some food items, etc.

    What to pay: Prices are very reasonable. I got a very cute bangle bracelet for $4.

    River Market District: The Arts

    by soundsgoodtome Written Jul 31, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The River Market District is mainly located along President Clinton Avenue and extends from the convention center to I-30. Along it you find several art galleries that sell ceramics, woodwork, paintings, and many other things of that nature. There is also an outdoor market area near the river where vendors bring jewelry, clothing, sunglasses, pottery, etc. to sell. The large variety will give everyone at least something of interest to look at.
