Meet Barb, who will touch your heart instantly with her kindness:
I’m a retired police dispatcher. Loved my job, the people I worked with, and the many citizens I helped. It was sad to leave, but I was happy to move on to start a new adventure.
I have always been crafty and dreamed of opening a business someday where I could share my love and passion for the arts. I found a building In Mildmay which had the space to run craft classes for all sorts of projects for all ages.
Another passion of mine is going to markets to see the wondrous items people have created. I wanted to give them a space to enable them to show off their talents and sell their amazing products all year round. I’m proud to support Canadian Hand Made items, whether it’s a company, or one person at home with knitting needles. Putting money into our own economy is key. My shop has 80% Canadian made products. We are proud to show off our Canadian Local Artists collection of Hand Made Gifts & Home decor. The shop floor is ever changing with new vendors, and vendors who switch our their items seasonally. We have One of a Kind , A couple of these, A few of those. Barb Ackerman
