Christian merchandise has always been popular among the faithful. The problem has always been one of availability. For a long time, Christian apparel, accessories, and art objects were confined to a few retailers and catalogs. Its existence was overshadowed by the flood of secular items that have overrun our consumer culture. It’s true that every now and then you can happen upon a Christian gift store. However, rare is the occasion when you can walk down the street and find a shop selling only Christian-oriented items.
Yet I never see an ebb in demand for Christian Merchandise. My grandmother, for instance, had turned her home into a menagerie of Godliness with Christian items. Religious books, from the Bible to those written by the top theologians of the day, filled her book cases. Inspirational plaques and paintings hung on the walls. Embroidered pillows containing verses from the New Testament adorned the chairs and couches. You simply could not walk into her home and not feel touched by the power of God.
I continually look for Christian merchandise to fill up my home, as do all my friends. In the past, it was like pulling teeth. We had to drive to another town to find the one or two stores that carried Christian-themed home items and clothing. Now, however, thanks to the World Wide Web, the whole situation has changed, and it’s great! I no longer have to be limited to my immediate area, or a slow-moving mail order, to have the Christian-themed merchandise I need.
On the Internet, I can do a quick search and find nearly anything of a Christian theme that my heart desires. I especially like to use this wonderful resource for Christian gift ideas as stated in http://www.ko-fi.com/post/Christian-Faith-T-Shirts-Y8Y7276PG article. When birthdays and holidays come, I know I’ll have the right gifts, and on time, too. I can even find cool, edgy-looking Christian t-shirts and accessories for the most hard-to-please teenagers in the family.
