These beautiful crosses will look lovely wherever you put them. And they’re all from small businesses on Etsy!

There’s something so special about buying from a small business. You’re directly supporting a person or family instead of a large corporation, and it’s a more thoughtful kind of shopping.

It’s no wonder the Church supports “shopping small.” Pope Francis has even spoken out in favor of thoughtful consumption, condemning “the drive to limitless consumption” that can be so tempting when we have so many products at the tips of our fingers. 

So in honor of today’s Feast of the Holy Cross, here are some beautiful crosses that will look lovely wherever you put them. And they’re all from small shops on Etsy!

Carved Wooden Crucifix from WoodenTimeUA

Carved from solid wood, this rustic wall crucifix is realistic and beautiful. It comes in various sizes. ($55)

Olive Wood Wall Crucifix from HolyLandCarvings

This tasteful wall-hanging crucifix was handcrafted in Bethlehem. Christian artisans carved it from olive trees, which have been growing in the Holy Land since ancient times. It’s 14 inches tall. ($174.99)

Sterling Silver Crucifix Pendant from SacredHeartGiftShop

At 1.5 inches tall, this small but ornate crucifix is perfect for wearing on a necklace. It comes in a black velour gift box on a 24″ Chain. ($39.99)
