Where to find Canada apparel and decor in Niagara - Getting Ready for Canada's big birthday celebration: Canada 150


O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love 

Every year, Canadians show off their patriotism by wearing and and showing off their red and white, maple leafs and all things CANADA. This year is a little different however, as Canada is celebrating 150 years since confederation. There are celebrations, contests, ceremonies, dedications and more taking place across this glorious country (that's another story).  

This article is where to get Canadian apparel and decor for the upcoming celebrations right here in Niagara. These items are selling fast - and may be gone already at some of the places shown below... check with them.

We will build this list as we get closer to Canada Day... check back.

    For many years I was a Professional Home sewer for a Major Canada Flag Company in Ontario. As their sewer I have the opportunity to obtain their Canada Flag Mill-ends Destined for a Compactor. Mill-ends is the material of printed Canada Flags that did not meet the Federal Governments approval to be completed into a Flag. They may have print bleed, damaged, or off set. I re purpose these discarded pieces of Canada Flag Material into four (4) sizes of Pillows, Three (3) sizes of totes, With my scrapes I create Teddy Bears, & Aprons. Last fall I contacted the Federal Government, and told them my story Their reply encouraged me to continue my Venture in a broader scale. I requested their approval to use the CANADA 150 LOGO on all my items. Their approval came in February 2017 making all my Creations "HERITAGE COLLECTIBLE" approved by the Federal Government My Canada 150 creations have been positively received by many Canadians & international visitors from around the world. You can also check out my FB page that is opened to the public and can be shared.... Art by Marianne White
