Hey...I was just wondering how many Canadian Indie shopping sites there are? The reason why I'm askin is cause I need to get some gifts FAST!!! And I am looking to buy something handmade. I know that there are many great indie shopping sites, but I fear that the shipping may take too long for when I need my products (and if I can save on Duty and shipping thats a bonus).

So if you've got a Canadian site that sells cool stuff... post your link on this thread...and who knows I may just find something I'm looking for.

Thanks

I'd love to know about this too!  I'm a big supporter of fellow Canadians - nothing against the US, but I'd rather buy at home first - esp considering shipping costs & time!

Have you checked out the DIY sites that are out there?  They do let us Canadians in *lol* so there might be a few . . .

And are you looking for anything in particular?  I know a few CDN Indie sites . . . well why don't I just list them:

Lindsay's Candles & Stuff: www.lindsayscandles.com
Spunky Kitty Style: http://www.spunkykitty.com
Sparkle & Sign Design: http://www.sparkleandshinedesign.com

And of course my own site - see below!   Wink

I make custom one-inch buttons, but I've also got over 100 original designs available for 1$ each.  Canadian dollars, of course.

A link swap would be great; I'll add you guys tomorrow.  You can link to www.memeco.ca

Anyone else?

I'm a canadian who recently moved back to Canada- Most of my customers are still in the U.S.A  but I'd really like to develop a customer base here...The incentive is free shipping in Canada! I'll be updating my site soon with new stuff for fall, and you can join my mailing list if  you want to be notified.

let me draw you attention to the blue house - a small toronto-based collective of which i am a small part.

not all the sellers are from canada (but many are) and the prices are all in american dollars (for what reason, i do not know).

it's also full of great indie music.

but there are  crafts and prints and other little arts all over the site.

enjoy!
