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.

When we first came up with the idea of a website featuring locally made cool things, we of course had to come up with a name for it. The '100 Mile' concept is pretty straight forward, but the word 'Finds' came about because we wanted a word that would reflect the 'hidden gem' component that we see in so many of our artisans. This week the blog is devoted to a few real 'Finds'.

This turquose stone necklace by JOS Originals is beautiful. The turquoise itself has so much colour and detail. The string of stones includes wooden agate, grass turquoise and turquoise. Several large links at the back of this necklace enable the wearer to shorten or lengthen the piece.

Every time I walk into our powder room I am reminded of Soap Utopia Naturals. This delightful soap has a beautiful natural fragrance that fills the room without overpowering it. Made from a blend of 100% biodegradable olive oil, coconut oil, palm (sustainably farmed), soy/canola, heaps of fair trade shea butter, and castor bean oil. These bars are infused with pure essential oil or bodysafe, phthalate-free fragrance oil. Its' luscious lathers are naturally free of added harsh detergents, phosphates, sulfates (SLS), and synthetic color.

We feel fortunate here at 100 Mile Finds to be a part of finding these unique items to share with you.
