MEET THE SUBURBAN EDIT
WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY NAME? HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH IT?
WHAT IS YOUR NAME? DO YOU HAVE STAFF OR IS IT JUST YOU RUNNING THE SHOW?
WHAT IS YOUR TOP SELLING PRODUCT?My best selling product would have to be the sponge cloths. They're a reusable cloth that replaces paper towel, and when you're done with them they are 100% biodegradable + compostable. Not only are they completely practical, but the designs are amazing. They add such a bright touch to any kitchen, can be used in the bathroom, and they make a really beautiful, inexpensive hostess gift.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT?It is so hard to choose my favourite product, because I genuinely only bring in products that I would use myself or gift to someone I love. I actually love the cards + stationery in the shop. They're mostly sarcastic, which is very me. I also love to give people just the right card when the occasion calls for it. I will pick up a card months in advance of someone's birthday if I find just the right one. It's a small gesture, but it's so nice to give and even better to receive. I also have to write everything down. Notebooks and agendas are essential for me, otherwise I would forget everything!
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOUR PRODUCT? MARKETS? STORES?You can find my products online with free local pick up available. I will also be doing lots of markets in the coming months, which will be consistently updated on my site so keep checking back! My next ones are the 124th Street Grand Market, Nest in the City and of course a pop up in shop at the Ellerslie Portage & Main!
WHAT DO YOU WISH MORE PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?
I wish more people knew my company existed! Haha but on top of that, I wish people knew that I am deeply passionate about this shop. It has been a jumbled mess of an idea of mine for years that has become clear and is now in action. I am so proud to finally share it with others and connect more with the people who see the value in what I'm creating. As of right now all the makers behind my shop are women, and most of them are moms. There's so much heart in these products and when you're supporting my shop and my family, you're also supporting the women who said yes to community and being a part of The Suburban Edit.
HOW DO YOU SEE YOUR BUSINESS EXPANDING?
Kathy will be popping up June 23:
