Find your favourite local brands at Nest & Sprout, Pine Centre Mall

by Bailey Bouwman

From the moment I met Rachelle, she has been an advocate and champion for local, going out of her way to support other local businesses, creators, and people. At her core, Rachelle is one of the most passionate and beautiful humans, and that is reflected in her day-to-day, and her business.

With the opening of the Pine Centre Nest & Sprout Maternity, Rachelle has brought in the products of many local authors, makers, and creators. This is a glimpse of what we have today, in October. I know on the DL to be expecting a few more local products in the coming weeks as line ups become available.

Local Seamstress: Bulldog Wrinkle

The booties make for a fantastic baby shower gift, the toques perfect for the transition into winter, and the blankets just incredibly soft and ready for your family.
