Gift Ideas from Kathryn Rebecca

For the last month I have been scooping out special items to pick up for the lovely ladies
in my life at Freedom Clothing Collective

Today I decided to start working on my gift idea and to start things off I chose one of the Freedom Reconstructed patterned pouches ($14). Then came the fun task of what to put in the pouch!

A fun collection of magnets made up of beautiful vintage buttons by Rae ($12).

Sweet little rose bobby pins by Larque. ($20)

Botanical Blends complete lipgloss, moistures without too much shine! ($5)

Carnivale handmade soap by Utopia, smells divine ($5)

Blooming branches wrap in gray with a gold plated clasp from my own brand Kathryn Rebecca ($45)
There is a a pouch with a different arrangement of treats for all of the ladies I love and I am SO looking forward to seeing them crack them open! :)

What is especially thrilling is to know that everything I am giving is Canadian made and that I am supporting a local entrepreneur. :)

Hope my own shopping experience might help give you some ideas for your own list of ladies.

Happy Holidays!

Pop Up Shop with Vaute Couture

Freedom is pleased to announce we are hosting our first ever pop up shop. On Dec 8th and 9th join us in welcoming the ever so stylish and sustainably concious Leanne Mai-Ly Hilgart and her Vaute Couture line. As the weather gets chillier, this is the perfect time to get a personalized, close-up look at Vaute's line of style focused, weather prepared winter coats, which are not only stunning but made to last with sustainable fabrics and environmentally concious materials and methods. 

We admire Vaute's dedication to sustainable, ethical and compassionate practices, especially their personal commitment to producing their products locally. This is a wonderful opportunity for a cross-border sharing of knowledge and best practices on building and sustaining local brands.

What’s a Vaute Couture POP UP SHOP appointment?
Just to be sure you have lots of time one on one with me, I take appointments! I used to do an open event, but this works out much better. It’s about 20 minutes per, and you can bring up to 4 friends with you for your slot.  Just be sure to RSVP with however many you plan to bring! Check out what time and date I’ll be in your city, and email Kristina at ASAP to let her know what general time is best for you- i.e. “Before 4pm” or “Between 1-2pm is ideal” and she’ll get back to you with your slot. And then take a look at the website to see some of what we have, but get ready because I’ll be bringing lots of new stuff too.
What will we do during the appointment?
There’s NO pressure to buy, it’s a great way to try on coats, see and feel them in person so you know what you plan to order in the future or just to check out what I’ve been working on developing! I can tell you all about the fabrics, the story behind styles, or we can just chat about vegan fashion/life/cupcakes. Or, if you want to come in and find the perfect coat or accessory- I can figure that out for you and show you everything! Totally whatever you’d like to do with our 20 minutes is up to you.
