Vendor Profile: Uncle Mike's All Natural Products

Uncle Mike’s All Natural Products began in 2009 when, as a climber, I needed a salve to strengthen and repair my dry and damaged hands. I started researching natural oils and the healing powers of essential oils. As I read and learned about their powerful natural properties, I wanted to experiment and create other products. This led to numerous experiments in the kitchen and a collection of products. As word spread, I began to hand out samples to friends and family. It didn’t take long before my friends and family were spreading the word and I was receiving requests for a natural replacement for other everyday products. After salve came deodorant, then toothpaste and soap, shampoo, laundry soap, aftershave, muscle mud, perfumes, room deodorizers, incense, and the list keeps growing! 

While I feel I have perfected many of my products, I continue to enjoy the artistic and scientific aspect of creating new products and new blends and will always be in the process of creating the next new natural alternative. All of my products are hand made in small batches using only steam distilled essential oils and cold pressed vegetable oils. No synthetic colours, fragrances or additives so that you get the purest most natural product. 

You can always find a full selection of products at and stay up to date with my adventures and new products by following me on Instagram (unclemikesnatural) Twitter (@umnatural), and my Facebook (Uncle Mike's All Natural Products).

Vendor Profile: Mimi & Lala

My mom taught me to sew, and I grew up making things I loved. Now I sew things my little girl loves. It all started with shoes (doesn't it always?) when she was 1 month old. My shoes and boots are made with soft fabrics so as not to bind little feet as they grow and develop. 3 years later, and I still love to create things that make her smile!

Vendor Profile: Just Sewing

I began playing with fabric on my grandmother’s sewing machine when I was a little girl and still use her vintage machine today. For over ten years I have been passionate about quilting--combining fabrics in both traditional and modern patterns. I believe that fabric is inspiring and a powerful design tool. Whether it's a baby blanket in a nursery, a mini quilt hanging on the wall, a cushion on your favourite chair, a tea towel hanging on the oven handle, or a quilt thrown over the back of the couch, fabrics bring life to our homes. I only hope to share my love of fabrics and all that they can create.

Vendor Profile: Willow & Wheat

Willow & Wheat started out of my love for fun, fresh prints for baby blankets for my 2 little boys. I had a hard time finding nice, modern prints for baby boys so I took matters into my own hands!  

I am a stay at home mom and this allows me to have a creative outlet while spending time with my boys. I have added bibs, teething rings and other items and will continue to add new products in the future.

Vendor Profile: Twisted Trees

Twisted Trees was started by my sister and I not to long ago. What started as a birthday gift has now expanded! What we make are Wire Tree Sculptures. Wire Trees are sculpted by twisting single strands of wire together to form roots, trunks, branches and leaves. Each wire tree is unique and looks very different from one another. The trees are mainly twisted by hand however some of the heavier gage wire trees require pliers to twist the trunk and heavier branches.
