About
“A unique bohemian, flower power, hipster boutique.” The Peace Thread Designs studio is dedicated to the global culture of peace through art and public activism. Our public face is a corner boutique in a historic building at the corner of Caroline and Whitehead streets, across from the Truman Presidential gates in Key West, Florida. Casper, The Peacepup, welcomes everyone to the store, where a relaxed vibe and intimate layout encourages shoppers to slow down and inspect the fine threads on display. The artisan tees feature unique designs and groovy palettes that lend tilt toward high fashion. Along with a collection of books on Peace, cultural nights, “The Peace Door Dialogues,¨ are also hosted in the shop’s open air courtyard, where locals and visitors alike enjoy the talent of personalities who lecture, sing, read poetry, or create peace designs. It’s the only PEACE Store in the world, where PEACE is always in FASHION.

Could not find the store. I went to the address but it was a private residence. I checked the address and checked the map.

Peace and Love
Feb 2020
Love the Peace Store! Friendly staff and great original products. T-shirts were original and fun with great style. Everywhere we looked in the little shop there were creative masterpieces on cloth. The shirts even had a little peace patch on the sleeve. We had to go back again for another shirt and to pet the friendly dog, Casper...an instagram celebrity with close to 7,000 followers!

Cool store
May 2019 • Friends
This store is kind of a throw back to the 60s Peace thing. They carry tons of t shirts, pins, posters etc. they also have 4-5 different Peace sayings that they market themselves and out in the shirts as well. Store itself is small but loaded with merchandise and the items are a bit pricey. I guess the peace movement is ok with capitalism.

One purpose of our creating the store was to bring quality designs to the market. We don’t have the advantage of mass produced corporate vendor relationships and we make everything individually. We hope you’ll understand that our form of capitalism just simply cost more to bring quality products to our customers. Thanks for reaching out and we hope you will wear our products because we always say “Peace is always in Fashion”

Unique Shopping Experience
Sep 2018 • Couples
Juan (owner) has created a unique shopping experience for items not found anywhere else on Duval ... it's a socially conscious business with a focus on both local culture and a focus on peace in our society. Will be our first stop next time in Key West! I agree with Dan C review ... this brand will do big things!

I always go to the Peace Shop when I need a gift for someone outside of Key West. Unique, unusual and Juan just recently really went out of his way to personalize a bag for me. Wonderful owners and always something in the shop you didn't expect to find. Don't miss it!!

Unique, Hip, & Visionary = The Peace Store
Jul 2018 • Friends
If you want a gift that is quality, meaningful and brings joy, check this place out. I was strolling Duval Street early on Sat morning before the store opened and could tell this was a place I wanted to visit.

I came back at 10am when it opened. The goods are so cool, I thought it was a huge new design concept from Brooklyn or San Francisco, but this Key West location is the first location for the store owner. He has created four fun, powerful “peace” brands. It is a must see. He even has some great Cuban artwork for sale. You can see the passion here.

I purchased gifts for my daughters, friends and myself. I think you can buy online too. Check it out. I predict big things for this brand!

A Key West must!!!
Jul 2018 • Couples
We just made our first trip to Key West and upon walking Duval Street, we spotted a very welcoming, warm, peaceful storefront window. It belonged to The Peace Store. Being a peace-loving hippie, I just HAD to go in to discover the most fabulous store on the planet. Juan, the owner, was right there to welcome us to the store. I was in awe! From the moment you walk in you are surrounded by the most beautiful peace merchandise that I have ever seen. Candles, jewelry, clothing, accessories. They have it all. They even have a mascot, Casper the peace dog, who has his own line of clothing. I very easily could have spent every dime I have in that store!
At the checkout, Juan continued to make us feel right at home. He spoke with us about our tattoos and his personal philosophy about his own ink. We talked about Casper and some of the other awesome merchandise that I plan to buy in the future. He even offered to heat press our patches on our messenger bags that we bought there.
I cannot say a bad thing about The Peace Store and Juan. We loved it so much that we returned for a second visit two days later.
The Peace Store is a must stop on your Key West visit!
Be sure to give Casper a pat on the head!

I have to take time to describe my experience at The Peace Store... I apologize it may be lengthy, but well worth reading...
Recently, I took a trip to KW with my “tribe” and we had been up and down Duval Street, which felt like a million times, and happened upon this quaint store. As we looked around, we were loving everything that we saw, I wish I could have bought one of everything! So, a super cute boho dress caught my eye but I didn’t purchase it. We were leaving soon and I didn’t have time to make it back to the store to scoop it up. So, as we are in the plane returning home, I am completely obsessed with thinking about this dress, I was experiencing the opposite of buyers remorse! Well, as soon as I got home I started to contact the store every possible way, I called emailed and Facebooked � When Juan responded, I almost went through the roof! I needed that dress... Well, let me tell you, Juan called me and let me know that the dress was still there, and that he would be happy to let me purchase over the phone and ship it to me. So after all the specifics and such, my dress is on its way!
I have always made sure to patronize local businesses when I can, and the choice to do so in this instance fulfilled every expectation of what good business is. I will tell everyone I know about my experience and given every opportunity to direct people to their website... So please, if you ever find yourself in Key West, while you are strolling down Duval St... stop in... I promise, you will not be disappointed! The Peace Store... thank you!
