It’s been quiet at the Shop Good Blog lately… because behind the scenes has been anything but!
We’ve been busy readying for a local Christmas Market that draws over 50,000 visitors (!) over three weekends, as well as preparing new blankets & more for our online holiday launch.
Amidst the mayhem fun, one of the most exciting things is the nearing of dignify’s 2nd anniversary!
Two years ago, I launched dignify.ca to an extended circle of friends & connections (as well as to, you know, the internet). There were 60 throws in that first collection. 4 of them didn’t make it out of the house where we photographed them, another dozen went at our pre-launch open house, and by the second evening of the online launch, I was ordering more.
Our first photo shoot with the generous & (on that day) long-suffering Shannon Yau!
By the time I received the new blankets two weeks later, there was only one original throw left!
That was a very fun time, but here’s something even better: two years in, we’ve purchased nearly 1000 blankets! All of them made by women working in a job with dignity, respect, & a sustainable livelihood – by women who needed this work the most. We are celebrating indeed!
For now, here is a little peek at some of what's coming:
