We aren’t ones for New Year’s resolutions. But, this year we did create some mindful goals we want to reach. The main one was discovered after cleaning out our basement when we went to put our Christmas decor away but had no place to store it. Yes, if you can believe it, it was before Marie Condos series on Netflix even launched. We actually hadn’t even heard of the series until everyone had already binge-watched it and our basement and closets were clean. But, we do clean with a similar intent
With that cleaning process, we realized we needed to be more mindful of our purchases for us, our home and our kids. So many purchases were cheap and on a whim and they were used once or twice and were either ruined or just not our style anymore and worth keeping. So, we decided, not because of the New Year, but because we had cleaned that we’re not only going to dial down on the random purchases but also purchase less. This time they will be better quality items and support the beautiful family runs small shops we have to offer here in Canada.
That’s when I needed your help. I reached out to my Instagram family and asked for all their favorite small shops in Canada. The list was endless and so helpful, so I went through each site and with style and price point in mind, I narrowed it down to my 10 favorite shops and a few items I want to purchase from each.
