Carey McClement has created more than just a vintage market, but an artistic haven for Wellesley, Ontario. In a community where there are no shortage of extracurricular activities, there was a void for those whose skill and passion lies in the world of art. That is until now.
Carey has always had a passion for handcrafting a variety of creations, but like most creatives as heart—was encouraged to pursue a more traditional and seemingly stable career path. After losing her corporate job in 2015, Carey decided to return to her love for refurbishing and upcycling vintage furniture. After the success of a few pop-up shops, and a growing demand for a local artist haven—Lucy Pearlle was born.
Studio, Book Nook, Event Space, Café, And More!
Lucy Pearlle is located in a building that embodies Carey’s theme of connecting the generations—in a spacious vintage mill, build back in 1882. The mill is more than just a retail space to display her furniture collection and the upcycled and handcrafted art of her vendors—but also serves as a creative community space. This includes a book exchange and reading book nook, and even space where musicians, authors, and artists can host workshops, seminars, and classes. Soon there will be a café and an open studio space local artist can come as a safe creative outlet.
As you can see, Carey has created vintage market and artist hot spot that is a haven for Wellesley’s creative community. Pop in to find one-of-a-kind vintage, repurposed, and handcrafted home accents and gifts—or as an inviting place to share, create, or enjoy art.
