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 and we stock our products in various 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.
If you’re located in Ottawa and you’d like an in-person shopping experience on your own schedule, we recommend checking out the Milk Shop in the Byward Market centrally or Beacon Hill Craft Club in the east end. Alternatively, we’re also at the Ottawa Artisans store at Rideau Centre, Bayshore or St Laurent (inside the malls). Those in the GTA can find us at the Little Pink Brick House in Etobicoke for in-person shopping!
Milk Shop in the Byward Market
As of August of 2023, we’re proud to announce that you can get our full Pride Flag line of soaps at the Milk Shop in the Byward Market! Located at 45 William Street in downtown Ottawa, you can’t get any more central than that! Check out this wonderfully queer-friendly and supportive space that has all sorts of goodies from small handmade business owners like us, and shop small and local all at once!
Beacon Hill Craft Club in the east end of Ottawa
Now you can get a selection of our soaps at the Beacon Hill Craft Club on Montreal Road! Located in the plaza at 2200 Montreal Road in the east end, you can find the BHCC at the very corner of the strip mall where the two sides meet (in the “V”). They have a selection of our fun and seasonal soaps, so be sure to give them a visit particularly when you’re looking for a fun gift! To find the soaps, simply pass the front desk and find the little shop behind it, where you’ll see our goodies on the shelves.
Ottawa Artisans store at CF Rideau Centre
Our products have been available since July 2023 at the Ottawa Artisans store at the Rideau Centre! To get to the location, go to the third floor and find the hallway between the Westin and the Coach store. It’s just across from the Marciano store. And 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 Bayshore Shopping Centre
We’ve been at the Ottawa Artisans store at the Bayshore Shopping Centre since 2021! The store is located on the third floor, between Walmart and the food court. To find our products in the store, walk past the cash and look left, where you’ll find our products on the wall just next to the cash.
Ottawa Artisans store at St. Laurent Shopping Centre
We set up shop at the St. Laurent location of Ottawa Artisans in March 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!
Little Pink Brick House (Etobicoke, ON)
This brand new boutique opened up in Etobicoke on March 4, 2023! Located at 651 The Queensway, this great boutique features small-scale, Canadian makers just like us! You can find our bar soap, shampoo and lotion bars stocked in their bath & body section. If you’re in the GTA, check out Little Pink Brick House in Etobicoke and support small businesses and save on delivery fees all at once!
