Winnipeg's Eco Craft Collective Shop

Ruth from PeriwinkleDzyns has passed on to me a little information about a new local artisan shop that I had missed.  It actually opened in June but I was on holidays for the last 3 weeks.  The shop is called Winnipeg's Eco Craft Collective located at 531 Osborne St (South End).  I haven't visited it yet so I have cut some information about the Collective, from Jody of Mozy Rue who is the visionary behind this new shop:

"Taking over a former art gallery space in Winnipeg’s funky South Osborne neighbourhood, the Mozy Rue EcoCollective opened its doors to the public on Tuesday, June 13th. The collective itself is made up of several members of Winnipeg’s art and craft community, who met through local craft shows and Etsy street-team events. The collection of handmade goods on the shelves will be constantly changing and evolving (much like the people who make them), which will give shoppers a completely new shopping experience with every visit. Organized into little “boutiques” within the bright, open space, customers can browse for everything from jewelry to furniture and, believe me, everything in between. The only commonality (besides their inherent coolness, of course) is that all items are handmade and “eco-friendly” in some way, either created from new, natural, sustainable materials, or upcycled/recycled/repurposed from discarded items. This is just a small sampling of the many members and consigners at the shop, but it should give you a taste of what we’re all about."

The Eco Craft Collective includes the following artisans and not limited to:
I will post more on the shop once I hear back from Jody or visit the place myself.

Photos are all taken from the above artisan's sites so make sure to not steal them.  ;)
