Yosemite Gifts comes to life in the charming and historic gold-mining town of Mariposa California.  In 1990 Su Carney opened Yosemite Gifts specializing in the sale of Rocks, Fossils and Unique Gifts.    Eventually Su needed to find a larger building to house her growing store.  In 2002 she relocated Yosemite Gifts after purchasing the more spacious historical landmark that was the original site of “Miller’s Capital Saloon” in 1867.  Today her charming store continues to showcase much of the saloon’s original woodwork and architectural features.

Once you enter Yosemite Gifts you will find a wide variety of specialty Gifts & Souvenirs. You will also discover many hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind treasures which are created right here in Mariposa and from all around the world.  From Gemstone and Fashion Jewelry, Indian Artifacts, Collectibles, Souvenirs, Tee Shirts, Trinkets, Toys and Games you are bound to find something for everyone on your list!

By creating a unique shopping experience for her customers, Su continues to carry on the legacy of the pioneering and independent spirit that began here in  the California Gold Rush era.  You are invited to come in and browse through our many charming rooms. Always friendly service!

Easy to find, Yosemite Gifts is located in the historic downtown area of Mariposa at 5023 Highway 140 - which is the main central entrance to Yosemite that is open year round.
