The Good Ideas Shop is a pretty cool window display of six online Ottawa businesses. Just like those lavishly decorated department store window displays of Christmases past, the Good Ideas Shop window showcases products by the six businesses, only with QR codes to take you to their online shopping experience.
You'll find it at 56 ByWard Market Square.
Every day for the rest of this week we’ll tell you about two of those businesses.
🔷 Birch Bark Coffee – founded by Mark Marsolais-Nahwegahbow, Birch Bark Coffee Company is a cause-driven organization focused on improving on-going social issues for Indigenous families. Birch Bark Coffee is proud to offer delicious, organic, SPP certified, Fair Trade coffee grown and produced by Indigenous farmers.
🔷 Brenda Made This – During the pandemic, Brenda turned her passion for knitting into profit, selling beautiful and comfortable made-to-order knit sweaters, home items, and knit patterns to inspire shoppers to try knitting themselves. Brenda saw an opportunity to provide a sustainable fashion option, through hand-made, quality knit items that are meant to last.
