Our collection consists of, hand-picked goods and gifts, with an emphasis on local, handmade and one-of-a-kind products. Our products are inspired by your summer vacations on Manitoulin Island where your days are spent on the lake and in the evening you’re cozied up to a campfire with friends and family.

Tanya Owen really cares about where you lay your head after a long day. She’s the artist behind Girliture, her furniture painting business that started focussing in on pillows only recently. “I’m not even sure what made me decide to try it, but I had been stencilling some furniture and thought I’d try one of the stencils on fabric. Then things just kind of took off from there.”

“I love creating different designs constantly, I get very bored if I have to do repetitive designs,” she says. “I think that’s what I enjoy about the custom side of it, always something different.”
