Small Business Saturday

Again this year, in honour of Small Business Saturday I thought I would share some of my favourite Etsy sellers. Check them out for unique Christmas ideas and to support creative, talented people (many of them Canadian). I have bought from all these sellers and highly recommend them

1-Erica and I are mad about tea and this Winnipeg tea artist makes the most delicious teas


2-This legally blind wood turner creates beautiful jewellery, pens and other items.


3-This Canadian Marine Biologist makes the cutest most durable dog collars. (And has a love for pit bulls)


4-United Cerebral Palsy of Rhode Island helps advance independence of individuals with cerebral palsy and other disabilities through art. 100% of the profits of the beautiful art, jewellery and accessories, goes to the artists in the Adaptive Art Program. Check out their wonderful work.


5-The best dog leash we’ve ever had. 100% of the proceeds go to Senior Spaniel Rescue


6-Gorgeous cards, amazing prices, from a Canadian seller…..oh yeah….and all the proceeds go to help patients struggling with cancer. You can’t beat buying from this wonderful lady.


7-A Toronto artist who creates beautiful Ukrainian eggs and jewellery.


8-Woolly toques and scarves from British Columbia. A portion of the proceeds goes to rabbit rescue groups


9-Heirloom seeds because gardening feeds the body and soul.


10-Another Canadian…absolutely beautiful gift card holders and more.


Please feel free to forward to other. Let me know if you or your loved ones have small or online businesses our family could support or some of your favourite artists and artisans.


Warm Wishes
