It's time to meet another fab Swell Made Co. stockist and we're so proud to introduce The Chic Canuck. The Chic Canuck offers an online shop (and pop-ups) where you can find the best of what Canadian talent has to offer, but it's so much more than that. It's a curated guide to Canadian business, design, travel and style. A trusted space and shop that offers suggestions from what gift to buy for a friend to what to see and eat in Vancouver (and other Canadian cities). They've got you covered from coast-to-coast. They are a tastemaker's guide to Canada.
Founded by Gracie Carroll, she created The Chic Canuck to fill a void in the market that supported the talent that exists within the borders of our own home. She wanted to make it easy for Canadians to support local without sacrificing style or quality. You can see it in her curated collection that is sourced with good taste and pride.
Here's what the team has to say in their own words:
"The Chic Canuck was founded by Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger, Gracie Carroll, and a team of true Canucks brought together by their love and enthusiasm for Canada and its homegrown talent. Our individual experiences working, living and travelling abroad, brought all of us a new-found patriotism and affection for our country that grew stronger the longer we were away. As Joni Mitchell would say, sometimes "you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone". Thankfully, we were able to come back.
In a country as vast as Canada, and one that is filled with so much talent, we are not only fortunate to have choice and power when it comes to our purchasing decisions, but we have the ability to support great Canadian businesses (big and small) every single day.
Did you know that if each of us spent $100 a year more on local businesses instead of chain stores, it would put an extra $3 million a year into our economy? Not only that, but it would also create thousands more jobs every year?".
We share the same commitment to supporting local, Canadian businesses. That's why we're so thrilled to work with The Chic Canuck and join their roster of vetted Canuck brands that include Gold Apothecary, Ella's Natural Botanics, Mary Young, Harlow Skin Co., The Crazy Plate Lady, Said the King and so many more.
Not only do they provide a marketplace and a voice for Canada, but they also take time to do good. The Chic Canuck is involved in taking the lead for events with CAMH and Sick Kids throughout the year. Swell Made Co. was honoured to be part of the Darkness to Light night in support of CAMH back in May.
They're style is killer and so is their support for all that is entrepreneurial and Canadian. That support fuels dreams and creativity in our humble and beautiful home. So, head over to The Chic Canuck or visit them at their next pop-up and say hello. These girls are are on fire and are destined to be a force in the Canadian retail and publishing industries.
