Fortify Natural Foods

Starting a food product line, specifically granola, was not my forever dream. I could have told you a list of different jobs or businesses I would have pursued first. However… doors open and your heart is lead to places in Gods perfect plan. (Isn’t life funny sometimes? 😊) It has been almost one year since this Fortify journey began and today I couldn’t imagine life any other way. Since starting this food product line, I have experienced the incredible JOY of knowing that my community has one more nutritious food option to choose for their homes and families. • This Saturday, I’ll be hanging out @montrose_and_george in Abbotsford for the FIRST weekend of the Maker’s Series. Come by to sample products and check out our entire line of merchandise! Let’s talk business, passion and alll things granola of course 🤷‍♀️😘! . . . . . #fraservalley #abbotsfordsmallbusiness #abbotsfordbusiness #montroseandgeorge #supportlocal #fortify #passion #pursuit #granola #smallbatch #downtownabbotsford

We knew that we wanted to bring some fun new scents with us to next weekend’s @thirdandbird market here in Winnipeg so got to work to create some amazing new scent profiles that we hope you’ll love. The first of which is our brand new Patchouli + Tobacco scent! This limited edition 7.5oz jar with lid is a Third + Bird exclusive that you won’t find anywhere else. This has been one of our favourite scents to create and we’ve loved the reactions we’ve received from those who’ve enjoyed testing it. We’ve heard everything from “this smells like my last trip to Havana” to “this smells like the secret fling that I had at the cottage a few summers ago.” Deep, earthy, musky and slightly woodsy our patchouli is not too herbaceous nor too woodsy. We’ve blended our patchouli with an amazingly rich tobacco fragrance that’ll take you back to summer nights sitting on the end of the boat dock smoking cigars with your ol’ man. It’s equal parts deep and dark with a richness & spice that’s oh so comforting. We can’t wait for you to explore this fragrance and see where it takes you to. 🏕🌲🛶 Find exclusively at @thirdandbird May 4th and 5th in the lower level of Winnipeg’s iconic downtown Hudson Bay Company store. $5.00 admission at the door. Checkout the Third + Bird feed to learn all the details.

Lennard Taylor Design Studio

#WHOMADEMYCLOTHES So much more goes into the making of a piece from Lennard Taylor’s collection than our clients can fathom. After the piece has been conceptualized and designed and the pattern has been painstakingly perfected, Lennard travels to textile trade shows around North America to hand select quality fabrics and prints for each season. Once the fabric makes its way to Winnipeg, each piece is hand-sewn, with great attention to detail and quality, by one of seven Lennard Taylor employees who are all paid a living wage for their talent. When you buy a piece from Lennard Taylor’s collection you have our guarantee that you are buying a unique, Canadian-made, quality garment. As our company grows and expands we will continue to strive to make your Lennard Taylor favourites in the same way that we do today; because people and quality matter to us. ❤ @fash_rev #fashionrevolutionweek

A glimpse into how it all began: . Stamping bar jewelry holds a special place in my heart because it’s kind of where it all began…. After I graduated with my masters degree I wasn’t sure what to do with the extra space in my life. I’ve always loved being creative and detail oriented so I started testing out the creative waters with things I never had the time to do in my 6+ years of post secondary school. I started stamping jewelry and in a turn of events I was asked to start selling my jewelry to benefit a local charity. That’s when, unbeknownst to me, a crafty tendency turned into a small business. What I make has evolved but my stamped jewelry has always remained some of my most popular and treasured pieces. I see it as a way to send small but powerful positive messages out into the world. So when you buy bar jewelry, know that in a way you’re supporting me from the beginning, before I even knew what this would become.
