The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

Silk Design by Jane

Jane first discovered 100 Mile Finds at a show in St. Catharines Ontario. She has recently updated her Silk Design by Jane 100 Mile Finds store to include a larger variety of her hand painted silk scarves. We love that she connects her designs to the Niagara region - her gorgeous blue rowing themed scarves highlight this activity that is often seen on Niagara rivers.

This pic at left features her 'work in progress'. The scarves are held by a frame and then thoughtfully painted by Jane.

Jane's uses salt to bring 'an explosion in colour and shape'. The sugar softens the colours. The scarves are made from Habotai silk and range in size from 8x54" to 11x60".

We are happy to feature Silk Design by Jane at 100 Mile Finds this month - her work brings a shot of colour to a sometimes grey season.
