The With Heart business goal is to seek out the most original and interesting stuff we can find and share it with our customers. We'll be combing through Etsy, visiting craft shows and trade shows and curating a collection of the best, at a range of prices. All items will be made or designed with heart… hence the name!
The website has an accompanying blog where you can catch up on the latest news, learn what it's like to run a shop and also read up on our featured artists.
A a crafter herself, (doing silversmithing, sewing, etc. as a hobby) store owner Lisa knows how much love, time and effort goes into the artists' work.
A lot of us pour ourselves into our projects. With Heart is our way of recognizing this passion in our Canadian marketplace. As the store grows we hope to find ways to give back to the crafting community, and also open a bricks and mortar location in a few years.
The same way that crafters are passionate about their craft, we are passionate about this business! We really have made it with our hearts.
At With Heart, we love our planet! That's why we believe in supporting green business and leading by example. We are proud to be a participating business in Toronto's LiveGreen Program. Wherever possible we seek to reduce our ecological footprint and offer green options to our customers.
Currently we do the following:
- We offer several enviro-friendly product lines, from reusable water bottles and candles-cum-wineglasses to upcycled handmade jewellery and accessory collections
- At the office we use only natural, homemade cleaners, recycle diligently and take measures to reduce our power and resource (paper, etc.) consumption
- We use eco-friendly packaging for shipping our products
- We offer a free Toronto pickup option not only for convenience and cost savings, but also to help avoid the environmental costs of shipping and packaging
