Lisa Killeleagh opened her sweet gift shop, Daisies and Doilies, on Wellington St, just in time for Christmas shoppers! When we visited in December, Lisa was excited to share that the day before she had experienced her first “lineup” at the cash desk – a very warm welcome from the neighbourhood!
Daisies have been Lisa’s favourite flower for as long as she can remember, while doilies remind her of her Mom, her Grandma, and the tea parties they would have. Even before opening her new shop, Lisa turned her love of both of these things into “doily art” whereby she takes doilies and turns them into magnificent creations to hang on the wall.
Lisa also makes pebble art, fabric wreaths, boho dream catchers… it’s important that she’s able “to feel ‘it'” when she creates something she goes on to sell.
At Daisies and Doilies there is something for everyone on your gift list – organic teas, giftware, artwork, home decor, candles, vintage jewelry and vases, spices, bath and beauty products and finally, adorable items for even the littlest human in your life. Products are vegan, organic, fairtrade and cruelty-free, and the best thing – the price points are affordable! Lisa wants every visitor to be able to walk out of her shop with something they felt good about purchasing.
From Baden, Lisa and her husband would visit Stratford for “date night.” She’s so happy now to come here every day!
Daisies and Doilies is open seven days a week – check Facebook for the hours!
