a little about us...we were always meant to be shopgirls
We first opened our doors in 2012 on Main Street in downtown Galt. From the first moment we opened, the community supported us. Seven years later, we outgrew our space and expanded to a larger shop, just around the corner.
We’re from a beautiful place.Downtown Galt (for the non-locals, that’s in Cambridge, Ontario!) It's full of historic architecture, scenic views of the Grand River and is an all-over great place to visit. We love living and working here... and we are so appreciative to the community that has embraced The Art of Home.
We have a passion for creative work. Our brick & mortar shop gives us the space to be creative. Surrounded by beautiful things, we are always creating new window displays or an in-store vignette. Here we get to connect with our customers, sharing a mutual affinity for the hand-chosen items we sell. When you visit our brick & mortar, you will be greeted by our team of shopgirls. We love what we do and we’d love to meet you.
