Local and handmade
Over the next week I am taking part of a blog round up across Canada to showcase all of the local and handmade businesses that I love, support, and want to encourage people to shop from this holiday season (and always). Being a part of Entrepreneur Mom Now, a peer mentorship for women entrepreneurs has helped to connect me to many local businesses. Now more than ever it is important for me to shop locally whenever possible. Check out these awesome businesses!
House of Koopslie
With all of it’s items lovingly created in Edmonton, AB, House of Koopslie makes items out of high quality, eco-friendly bamboo fabrics and uses innovative designs to create fleece hats, tanks, boot cuffs, and their famous headbands that are so popular you can find them all the way in Japan! You can find their items at several local businesses throughout Edmonton or you can shop online 24/7.
Enter to win a one of a kind, limited edition headband.
Based out of Edmonton, AB, CoverBoo Couture helps nursing moms stay both fashionable and discreet through its innovative nursing cover design that also doubles at a scarf.
