Where we come in...

Established in 2011 by Kate Arroyo and Liberty Galvin, Gondwana sells jewelry, accessories, clothing, paintings, wood carvings, purses, and other decorative items from around the world. Gondwana is a pop-up store making appearances at numerous Stillwater, Oklahoma City, and Bartlesville events. Proceeds from sales are used to purchase supplies for water filtration and agriculture education projects led by Oklahoma State University students and faculty. What does Gondwana mean? Literally, for millennia Gondwana was the "southern hemisphere" part of the ancient supercontinent Pangaea. Gondwana encompassed what we now know as Africa, South America, Antarctica, Australia, and India.
