Eeeeek! Lindsay of Lost in Layers makes the best kimonos this side of the pacific! Colourful, flowy and perfect for layering – which is the best thing about fall, right?

Etsy: Made in Canada – Calgary’s sweet vendors of 2017

Happy Tuesday, Calgary!

If you’re a bit sad that summer is coming to an end, don’t be. We’ve got a bunch of amazing vendors whose products will make you look forward to fall and our Etsy: Made in Canada Day!

Red Paper Boutique are two moms, best friends and mental health nurses. They chose to use paper as the medium through which they want to connect people and make us realize the importance of perspective and humor. How wonderful!

Heather of Mumble Tease is the queen of weirdness and whimsy. Her eclectic designs and happy colour choices make you smile, laugh out loud or maybe wonder a little. We love her!

One of the best things that were popular in the 70’s and that made a recent come back? Macrame and Moonshadow Macrame makes exquisite macrame for plant hangers or other wall decorations.

M Mackenzie Jones is inspired by flora and fauna as well as memory and nostalgia. And she translates these feelings into beautiful jewellery so we can all have a little piece of the mountains with us, every day.

Molly and Vi are Sarah’s creations and she just loves to craft delightful nursery and home decor. So sweet!

Talking abour nursery decor: Erin of Mod Menage has the most darling prints to make your little ones room a little more homey.

But of course your mini me’s have to have something stylish to wear! Look no further than Mini Way Co.

Migrant Muse Designs are Portia’s creative endeavour. She creates painted abstract jewelry with a touch of gold leaf. Oh, so colourful, sparkly and shiny!

Master Ark’s creations are just as fascinating as his story. He first started making medieval jewellery some 35 years ago, then life changed, he sold his business and moved around the world. Life changed again to bring him back to his roots and bring us his wonderful work inspired by the Celts, Vikings and Saxons.
