Over the May long weekend, my hubby and I got to sneak away from the kids for one night while Grandma was in charge. Where do you go to recharge for one night that's close to Toronto? Our first answer was Prince Edward County. We spent a week there last summer and fell completely in love. It's so close, yet so far. Think, great wine and food, a slow pace, lakes and sand galore... I'll post more on that particular adventure soon because there is too much to tell, but while we're on the topic of The County, let me introduce one of our new stockists - KOKITO in Bloomfield, ON.
This is one my favourite shops in all of Canada! KOKITO's owners Shelley and Jenn have filled the quaint shop on Bloomfield's Main Street to the brim with a curated selection of Canadiana, modern home goods and so many delightful treasures. Travel+Leisure called KOKITO: quirky and eclectic. You could spend hours examining every little item because each one deserves that much attention. Every item, every maker and the owners themselves have a story to tell and that's what makes this shop so special. You really have to see it for yourself, so make a point of getting out there this summer if you can. You won't regret it.
Shops like KOKITO are what inspired the creation of Swell Made Co. I love shops that support the building of communities and dreams, like so many of our great stockists. Shop small, shop local.
Watch for our post about Prince Edward County coming soon!
