Self love is key this year!
Coming off of the holidays and getting back into your regular schedule can be tough. With new year’s resolutions on-the-go and work or school back in the mix, taking some time for yourself can be difficult. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to reclaim some me-time; self care means being able to take care of yourself so that you can be there for the ones you love and care for.
Below we’ve selected some handmade products that can help you on your road to relaxation! Stop into Arts Market’s four locations from February 1st to the 14th and you’ll find several wonderful products marked by a heart-shaped sign: these are perfect gift ideas and ways to take care of YOU this Valentine’s Day!
At our Leslieville location Becca creator of Knots and Clay shop has a wonderful selection of hand-thrown mugs and bowls in an array of unique textures and colourful glaze combinations. These handmade treasures make the perfect home for a warm cup of tea or a nice bowl of soup to beat those winter blues!
Avoid the obvious grocery store box of chocs and get something a little more exciting (and unique!). At our Riverside Location you can get your chocolate fix with Alice’s treats! Her shop Ecila Sake Chocolates specializes in combining the delicate flavours of Sake and chocolate. Her innovative recipes and chocolate designs will be sure to satisfy any sweet tooth!
Over at our College Street location, Luna Craft has a whimsical shop that’s chock-full of darling creations including intricate crochet jewelry and bookmark designs.
Last but not least, Sara’s Soaps and Candles creates hand poured and hand dyed soy-based wax candles, giving her customers not only a longer burn time but also providing an environmentally conscious option for those on the lookout for a soothing atmosphere. Sara’s scents are influenced by her travels throughout Canada. Recently added: a wellness collection which includes scents like clarity, vitality and meditate, just to name a few.
Picture this: sitting down with a warming beverage in your Knots and Clay mug, nibbling on some Ecila Sake Chocolates, flipping through a good book with your Luna Craft bookmark, and smelling a beautiful scented candle from Sara’s Candles. We’re feeling relaxed already!
