They call The Nooks an artisan retail business incubator—we believe we’re inspiring Canadian makers across the country to follow their dreams, build successful businesses, and be part of a community-driven movement that’s all about Canadian businesses, their stories, and beautiful, handmade products.
It all started when founder Colleen Imrie wanted to help artisans follow their dreams and build successful businesses. Several years later, 10+ stores, and a massive online marketplace—and it’s clear why makers and shoppers love The Nooks. The Nooks is a creative space that allows Canadian artisans and entrepreneurs to sell their handmade items both in-store and online.
Our makers pour their heart and soul—their passion—into creating products that are 100% unique. Our community-first approach and innovative retail-online model gives makers a national storefront so Canadians from coast to coast can shop Canadian handmade. Hello Sunshine is a little one’s nook located inside our stores where you can shop everything for baby and mama!
Our vision is simple: We want to empower, educate, and help Canadian makers become successful.
Inspired by The Nooks stores, The Nooks Maker Marketplace is the best place to purchase handmade products for baby and child, decor, sweets, footwear, accessories, gifts for expecting parents, and green living. Here you can not only pick up something special but you can also meet the designers behind the brands and hear their story.
Regardless of whether you’re shopping for your first, your second, yourself or a gift, we have you covered.
