Learn a new skill and go home with something handmade this summer
When isn’t Dove + Arrow boutique (131 Lakeshore Road East) hosting experiential pop-up events? This summer is no exception, for the months of July and August, in addition to shopping for quality handmade goods, the space will open its doors to DIY enthusiasts looking for fun and interactive experiences right in the heart of downtown Oakville.
When the boutique opened last year, “I wanted to help people who are making things in Ontario connect with the community,” says owner, Iva Ouzonova. To that end, her mission has since the beginning been to support local makers and make it easy for people who love to shop local to do so year-round.
Dove + Arrow is dedicated exclusively to handmade in Canada. From unique jewellery to small housewares, apothecary to prints and stationery, it is a thoughtfully curated collection of beautifully crafted wares from across the country.
Specializing in gifts and gift boxes – both pre-selected and custom-made, and DIY experiential workshops – Dove + Arrow is a great place to get a housewarming or bridesmaid gift, a unique souvenir, or something for that hard-to-shop-for someone.
What’s more this summer, you can stop by to shop, enjoy treats, learn a new skill, and go home with something handmade.
