About Us


Welcome! We are so happy you found us!

Global Heart is a brick and mortar store located in Sonoma, California. At this moment, we are owned and operated by a wife and husband team. Sofie began working at the existing fair trade shop in 2005 when it was under a different name and ownership, and purchased it in 2014. Her husband Byron joined in September 2020.


I (Sofie)  first started this website in October of 2017. Sonoma and Napa counties had just endured the first traumatic fire season of our lives, and for our (and your) safety we were closed for a week. This was the first time this store was EVER closed, other than the three big holidays each year.


After we reopened, I let the site go dormant. But all that changed in 2020....


After the stay at home orders came down in March, I kept thinking that we had to able to reopen soon... In April I started this website up again, and I spent hours photographing items and listing them online. With the shop closed, I was able to photograph and list each individual scarf and heart rock, pulling them off the sales floor with each order.


We were finally able to reopen, with restrictions, in June of 2020. I decided to keep the website going so that I could reach more people, and try to generate more sales. The only issue has been: As we got busier here in Sonoma, it became MUCH harder to keep track of the items online. A hat may sell in the store at the same time the same one sells online. It has the potential to get messy. (There have definitely been a few 'oops' moments over the last 2 and half years...)


So now, in 2023 I am doing some updating.  This online store will be for our bestselling items that we sell so many of, we always have plenty on hand!


If you are looking for something NOT listed online, fear not! We will still list it for you to purchase, it just takes a quick email or phone call! More info on this is listed under the tab "Don't see what you came here for?"


Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the this seemingly never ending pandemic. We appreciate YOU, and would love to make you happy and get you the items you want!


-Sofie, Owner
