Spring time at Sew Dandee!

I can't remember a time when my shop has been more packed with AWESOMENESS!

I've got so much great stuff on the racks right now from retro inspired skirts to unique silk screened shirts to d.i.y. doll kits and one of a kind feather earrings and aprons. And that's just the tip of the iceburg! If you haven't been down to the shop in a while, now is the time.

Just yesterday, the lovely and talented local designer, Melanie Wesley brought in her latest creations for Sew Dandee. The prettiest spring skirts in the coolest, vintage fabrics!

Here's a few shots of the store today to inspire you to head on down for a look in person!

What's NEW at Sew Dandee!

We got a big batch of new silk screened t-shirts from Montreal couple, Jezebel and they're AWESOME! All the ones in these shots are women's but all the images shown also came in men's sizes.

And that lovely skirt they're shown with is by local seamstress, Grace Sheldon.

She also sent a few kid's t-shirts in the bunch that are just down right adorable! Perfect for your little mouse!

And in addition to our onesies, bibs, legwarmers, hats and t-shirts we've also got some new baby headbands made by local crafter, Leslie Pinchin!

So, get your butts on down here and pat yourself on the back for plowing thru those nasty exams! You deserve it!

We've got Just The Goods!

Sew Dandee is thrilled to announce that we now carry your favourite (or soon to be new favourite) locally made body products by Just The Goods!

Milena puts her heart and soul into each batch of shaving solids, facial toner and moisturizer, body and foot butter, lip balm and hand lotion.

Here's a snippit from her blog that touches on the motivation behind her starting Just The Goods:
Just the Goods seeks to offer affordable vegan products to help them become more widely available, therefore facilitating healthier living as part of increased consciousness about the environment and consumerism in general. The only Just the Goods product not yet vegan is our lip balm, which contains beeswax and lanolin. Both items are harvested without causing harm and I am working toward confirming our cruelty-free approach with PETA’s Conscious Consumer program.

I've been using her body butter, lip balm and facial moisturizer for a few months now and I'm hooked. Not only can you feel good about using her products knowing that they're all cruelty-free and made locally with only the most natural ingredients and minimal packaging, her products are awesome and feel amazing on your skin. Not to mention, they all smell naturally amazing!

Come down to the store today and check all her products out!

And just a reminder, Mother's Day is around the corner. A Dandee card and some Just The Goods would be sure to be a hit with any Mom! Just sayin'!
