The Camino Store, supporting Camino Samaritans -
- helping pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago since 2006
Hello. I did my first Camino in 2005 and was surprised by the complete lack of first aid or pastoral care for pilgrims. I knew first aid, had a good degree in religions and theology and I was retired, so the next year I returned to Camino to offer first aid and pastoral care to pilgrims.
I have been doing this, as a Camino Samaritan, since 2006. All is provided free - there is no charge.
I source direct from Spain but some St James and Scallop Shell jewellery and pendants I make myself - so they are unique to the Camino Store, unavailable elsewhere.
If you look at my store on Ebay you will find that I have nearly 6,000 positive feedbacks.
This is important to me - I want buyers to be content - we are all pilgrims after all - so products are always exactly as described and depicted in the listings and if there are any problems, such as damage in transit, I offer a full refund or replacement, whichever you prefer.

I opened the Camino Store that same year (previously named Pilgrim Supplies) for two reasons. Firstly, it was impossible then to buy Pilgrim/Camino items anywhere but in Spain along the Camino and in Santiago de Compostela and as a Camino ‘addict’ I thought that others would also want to source pilgrim products.
Secondly, profits from the store could go towards replenishing first aid stocks.
