We also carry Farmer’s Son Co candles in a variety of delicious fragrances! Festive specials and classic scents, these soy candles are hand poured and burn clean. An easy gift for anyone!

The Basha Boutique throw blankets are always a huge favourite! These gorgeous, one of a kind blankets are hand made from recycled and vintage saris by women who have escaped sex trafficking and abuse in Bangladesh. These women are taught the skills necessary to create these incredible blankets and pursue dignified work through Basha. This gift really helps make change in the world!

Another gift that is always a hit are candles! We have soy wax candles from Farmer's Son Co. in several incredible scents. Plus, these candles are in reusable glass tumblers that you can continue to use long after the candle has burnt out!

Welcome Farmer's Son Co!

Farmer's Son Co. Fields of Clover candles.

Just arrived, and thrilled to be carrying candles from Farmer's Son Co. These candles are created and hand poured in small batches in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We've stocked a selection of signature scents (Amber & Sandalwood, Teak & Tobacco) as well as seasonal Spring time scents (Fields or Clover, Slow Sundays, and Morning Calm). It's hard to choose a favourite, although I think my prairie girl childhood memories are leaning towards "Fields of Clover". It's amazing the memories scent can evoke, come see which one resonates with you!
