People ask us all the time where we’re located, and the honest answer is that we’re still running this little business out of our home studio! But we do sometimes participate in markets or stock our products in brick-and-mortar stores. So if you’d like to shop our products in-person, you’re in the right place! Here are the good folks who are hosting our products in the foreseeable future.
Ottawa Artisans store at Bayshore Shopping Centre
If you’d like an in-person shopping experience on your own schedule, we recommend checking out the Ottawa Artisans store at the Bayshore Shopping Centre. The store is located on the second floor, around the corner from/beside Nespresso.
To find our products in the store, walk straight to the back and you’ll see our items on the right-hand side of the back wall.
Ottawa Artisans store at Place D’Orleans Shopping Centre
We’re excited to announce that as of February 1 (2022), we have our wares at the Ottawa Artisans store at the Place d’Orleans Shopping Centre!
To find our products in the store, simply walk into the store and look to your left. You’ll find our items on the left wall near the door, at about waist height.
Ottawa Artisans store at St. Laurent Shopping Centre (NEW!)
We took the plunge and set up shop at the St. Laurent location of Ottawa Artisans on March 1 (2022)! The store is located just near the cinema entrance, so if you come in those doors and walk straight past the cinema escalator, you’ll see the store on your right.
To find our products in the store, walk to the very back of the store, where the scented items are. We’re located on the wall right beside the back hallway, and you can find a wide selection of our offerings there!
2022 Markets + events
We’re thrilled to be doing online and in-person events alike this year! Please keep an eye on this schedule, as it will be updated as we add more events and dates!
Women’s Show @ the Shaw Centre (April 9-10, 2022)
We’re so excited to announce that we’ll be at the Women’s Show this year! Taking place at the Shaw Centre, right in downtown Ottawa, you won’t want to miss us at the Ottawa Artisans alcove! Be sure to stop by and say hi, as we’ve even made a special exclusive soap just for the show!!
Pride, Not Prejudice Fair (april 21-24)
The PNP fair is one of our favourites to do twice a year! It’s totally online, but we’re surrounded by other progressive, wonderfully creative folks who are doing great work locally and we love every second of it! We’ve gone ahead and made not one, but two special, limited edition soaps just for this show! Seriously, you won’t want to miss it, so be sure to mark your calendars! 🙂
Kanata BIA event (june 12) This is our first time venturing this far into the west end, so if you’re in Kanata or area, make sure you come visit! This event is a partnership with the Kanata BIA and Ottawa Artisans, and it will be an outdoor event. We’ll be at the Kanata Commons mall (8231 Campeau Avenue) all day and with our best specials, so it’ll be a great time! See you there!
Sorry, folks, but due to the very rainy weather expected at this event, we’ve had to sit this one out to avoid major product damage. (Sadly, water and soap don’t mix very well—until it’s time to wash up, that is!) We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes, and can’t wait to see you in Kanata for future markets!
Square Lemon market (October 22)
We’ve done a Square Lemon market before, but it’s been ages (pre-COVID, actually!). We’re pleased to partner with them again at their fancy new location, the Glebe Community Centre (175 Third Ave)! We’ll be there on October 22nd from 10:30am to 3pm, slinging soap and taking names! We’d love to see your beautiful faces in the Glebe this year!
H.E.L.P. holiday craft fair (November 12-13)
We absolutely love the H.E.L.P. folks, so we’re thrilled to join them for their 2022 holiday craft fair! If you weren’t lucky enough to catch up with us at last year’s show, we’d love to see you at this year’s! It’s always a super well-organized and juried market with excellent makers from the area! It’s taking place at the Ottawa Hellenic Center (1315 Prince of Wales Drive) and runs Saturday from 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-4pm.
The MAC fair “Cheer” edition (december 3)
We’ll be at the MAC fair this year! Taking place every year thanks to the young ‘uns at Immaculata, this year is the “CHEER” edition of this craft market! It runs on December 3rd from 10am to 3pm, and we’ll be joined by all sorts of amazing, carefully curated crafters from the Ottawa area. You’ll find it all at Immaculata High School (140 Main Street). We can’t wait to see you there!
