Since I was a child I was a collector, a curator or a picker, whatever you want to call it, I loved to gather things, rare and interesting things. I never suspected that a childhood rock or stamp collection could inspire a career. I began my business selling vintage clothing, accessories and furniture in my first shop (the Stuff Store). I began adding the latest Canadian designers and had to move and morph into a different business, focusing more on the latest trends in women's fashion, mostly dresses called Tonic. Over the years I began to see some favourite items both for me and my customers. This is whereFarminista began, to focus on the best handmade and timeless pieces we sell and ship everywhere. Trends change so fast but let me introduce you to some of the best value and quality items I love, and always try to keep in stock (and you know I'm always hunting for new items to add).
These are just a few of my favourite handmade items. They are all carefully and thoughtfully made, meant for years of enjoyment. Next time you are looking for the perfect gift for you or a friend look into where in came from, so you know that it will last for years.
