Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop and look at my collection. After many years working as an apparel designer in the Toronto fashion industry, I started my own business designing and making patchwork items, project bags, tote bags and leather goods.  Every piece is designed, drafted and crafted by the lakeside in Canada.

I create pieces that are unique and thoughtful, with special attention paid to workmanship and quality.  As someone who thoroughly enjoys beautiful bags and being organized, I do my best to design items that I would want to use myself, every day.   

Whether you are organizing your crafting projects, journaling supplies or simply want a functional and beautiful handbag, I hope your by the lakeside piece will bring you many years of enjoyment.
