Figg Street Co

Antoinette D’Angelo from Figg Street Co in Thorold has been, in her own words, “winging it” for the past three years with the curation of her beautiful store Figg Street Co. However, with an apparent sense of style, and a passion for old fashioned hand-craftsmanship, this rather modest entrepreneur is doing a gorgeous job.

I have to admit, shopping generally doesn’t make me happy. If I am at a big mall I often feel irritated and overwhelmed and want to take a nap. But, finding beautiful unique items that are loving handcrafted is a different story. So I love seeking out stores like Figg Street Co that promote beautiful craftsmanship and small batch unique items.

Stationery lovers will be in heaven here. Whether you love journaling, writing letters, giving thoughtful thank you notes or wrapping beautiful gifts, you will find something amazing like the Fabriano Vergatone Notebooks, which have been handcrafted in Italy using the same techniques since 1924, or the stunning fair-trade Lotka paper, which is handmade by women in Tibet.

It’s clear that Antoinette cares about the items she stocks with pride and passion, and has the expertise on her products to pass along to her customers. This is an experience you just can’t find in most big chain stores.
