Calgary and Winnipeg get some cool spots.



Market Spot

The artisan market that gathers more than 35 Calgarian makers in one place is back just in time for this holiday season with not one but two downtown pop-up shops. Find curated selections of local handmade products (like Alberta beeswax beard oil from Washboard Soapery and Such, or Drool Pawtisserie’s gourmet dog treats) at Core Mall and at CrossIron Mills from now until December 31.



June Home Supply 

Mûr Lifestyle, an online store for modest and sophisticated kitchen, home and bath wares, is getting a bricks-and-mortar shop and a new name: June Home Supply. The husband-and-wife owners hand pick beautiful and functional goods from designers, artisans and small manufacturers from Canada and beyond for a refined and eclectic mix—think blown-in-Manitoba glass straws and natural, undyed wool blankets from Mexico.
