Souvenirs of Canada

Red Dipper Bird change purse by Victoria, BC's Bonspiel

I've gathered a few souvenirs from Canada for those of you not able to make it to the games here. All of them are handmade, and are either from here, or have a Canadian theme of sorts. I love the idea of a modern day souvenir, something one-of-a-kind, handmade and unique.

Hey, I've got that Bonspeil change purse - I love their stuff and first saw it here ages ago. One of our local shops in Nelson carries her work and I treat myself to something new whenever I can!

i bought one of wikkerink design's bike tube wallets for my husband, and it's awesome! thin, comfy, super sturdy and stylish (but not too stylish!). i highly recommend!

Great picks! I especially love that mug by Dahlhaus. I have one of her mugs, and it's so beautiful and well made.

Hi there
I have just stumbled across your blog... it's great.
I want ALL of those items they are beautiful!!
I can't seem to get to the link where the change purse is from and I'm in love with it, is it an online shop? I am from the UK so couldn't pop to Canada to buy one anytime soon.
