Since our first post, the collection of local makers and businesses at Nest & Sprout has continued to grow and change as we find new partners and opportunities. If you're interested in being showcased at Nest & Sprout, send us a message. We'd love to work with you to make this happen.
We love to carry Made in Canada, Designed in Canada, but most importantly - we love to be able to offer a space for local businesses to connect with new customers and continue to offer the community local-designed products. These are, of course, products for new parents and their young off-spring. We're looking to cloth, accessorize, and decorate with products made in Prince George, BC, or across Northern BC.
