A couple weeks back I introduced you to my pals at Maker House Co., who just launched their website over at makerhouse.com. In case you missed it, Maker House is a local Ottawa shop founded by my buddy Gareth, who’s on a mission to change the way we buy stuff.
Here's Gareth and his #bossbabe wife Sarah (pssst: she's the talented calligrapher behind Jack + Dewey):
Gareth supports Canadian makers and artisans by stocking only 100% Canadian made goods for your home, your office, the cottage, and anyone on your gift list. Whether you’re hunting for handcrafted furniture or hand-poured candles, the cutest throw cushion or the coziest sweatshirt, Maker House has it.
And like I said, ALL of it made in Canada.

#craftchange and make a difference
As if that wasn't enough, Gareth takes it a step further by donating 2% of all sales to not-for-profit organizations through his #CRAFTCHANGE program. To date, Maker House has donated more than $15,000 to local community organizations in Ottawa. Pretty swell, eh? These are stand-up folks.
