The Local Business Beat: Spirit Dreams

Since 1994, Spirit Dreams, located at 1430 Lake Dr SE in Grand Rapids, has provided holistic health products and resources intended to enrich the body, mind and soul.

The driving force behind the shop is much more than naturopathy – it’s a passion for helping both local and international artists. The shop’s business principles align with the highest ethical standards, meaning it avoids buying from or working with large corporations and businesses that take a cut of the proceeds from artists’ work.

Spirit Dreams has partnered with Global Crafts, a co-op that offers income-generating opportunities to craftspeople in developing countries by following fair trade practices.

Some of the most popular Global Crafts items at Spirit Dreams are these whimsical soapstone figurines; each item was hand carved and painted by women artists who live in impoverished countries. By selling these charming gifts, Spirit Dreams is able to make sure all of the proceeds earned go directly back to the artists.

The soapstone items are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and patterns – from your favorite animal to tiny heart-shaped boxes. No two items are created alike, making these vibrant figures the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for your loved ones this holiday season.
