online, or in person in one of their upcoming Southern Ontario shows.
When Ann walked into the banquet hall in a kick-ass vintage-style polka dotted dress, I figured I was probably going to love whatever she was selling. And I did. She makes very high-quality, vintage inspired clothing and accessories for girls and boys (check out these suspenders - too adorable, right?!). Like me, she's both a mom of a toddler and recently turned her crafting hobby into a job. Check out Anne's webpage and Etsy shop (there's a few things there for women too.)

I was fortunate enough to have my booth beside Rhonda from Cottage Lights. Together with her mom, Colleen, Rhonda had me in stitches whenever there was a break in traffic through the show. Rhonda has a highly stressful full-time job, and she relieves stress by (meticulously) hand-pouring 100% natural soy candles. For people who love beeswax, but want a more cost-effective natural candle, check out soy. Actually, soy candles just seem all-in-all better than conventional candles in terms of scent-throw, burn time, and clean-burning. Cottage Lights offers custom scent blends for a variety of tastes. Check out Rhonda's website for upcoming events and retail locations in southern Ontario.
