I run my business from Amherst, Nova Scotia. (As of May 1st 2022)
I started a business called monkeysandmore.com in 2014 after I had two heart attacks and a stroke and needed to figure out a way to work from home.
I started with sock monkeys which became very popular over 4 years and have gone all over the world. I have created and sold over 6000 of my monkeys but decided I needed and wanted to do more.
In January of 2018 I made a few Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Tartan Scarves and some other products like table cloth sets, runner sets, some skirts and other products.
They took off. In April of 2019 I changed direction and started Maritime Tartan Company creating all sorts of tartan products.
Pricing for the products was very simple, give a great product at a great price. I looked at it this way "What would I want to pay for an item like this in a store"?
I have been sewing for over 40 years and i am very good at it. I do not not let anything leave my workshop unless it is perfect!
Keeping mostly everything handmade (except wool products) here in Amherst Nova Scotia Canada.
I recently started carrying wool products made by Patrick King Woollen Company as I do not work with wool personally. There was a huge interest in it and Patrick King Woollen Company was the perfect fit for my business.
My products have shipped worldwide as far away as Hong Kong and i am always getting new projects!
I love hearing from people. Feel free to send me a message or call (902) 441-6721
