Even the most ardent advocate of handmade goods sometimes gets overwhelmed by the dizzying realm of Etsy. Enter Brika (“bree-ka”), a Toronto-based e-retailer offering a curated selection of modern crafts, along with information about the artisans who make them. The company’s brand new pop-up shop in the Queen Street Hudson’s Bay is full of Canadian-made home decor goods, stationery and jewellery, all with a quirky-cute aesthetic reminiscent of Anthropologie. (We’re jonesing for the knitted metal jewellery from Golden Designs and the whimsical tea towels from Freshly Printed.) The Canadian creations will be at The Bay through the holidays, and are also available online alongside a larger selection of crafts from U.S.-based makers.
