Glo Says Podcast - The Nooks Marketplace, Curated, Crafted, Canadian 

Listen to Colleen & Adam's Story - Your “maker” potential is endless! Apply to join the Nooks. If you are accepted, your handmade wares will receive 100% of the proceeds in exchange for a low monthly fee. And you will be a Nookie. Exciting retail opportunities are afoot for makers and for consumers from coast to coast!


The holidays are fast approaching, and if you (like me) haven’t checked everyone off that gift list yet, do not panic! More than ever this year, the idea of sticking close to home (or better yet, staying inside) has never been so appealing, or so important. So, if you (like me) still need a few choice presents for your loved ones, here are a few perfect places to #shoplocal. Instead of praying for that box to be delivered on time, try a curbside pick-up at a shop nearby. Make supporting your community a priority this year (and every year for that matter).
