Store Feature: Out of the Blue

June 21, 2018

It's time to decorate your place with some new decor and grab some new summer clothing. So, where should you go? We say, Out of the Blue. There are so many amazing shops here in Winnipeg, but if you want to shop for an array of local items, it's a great place to start. 

 

Out of the Blue, one of the cutest shops on Osborne, is described as "eclectic by nature with a vintage vibe." Wendy Walters, owner and female entrepreneur here in Winnipeg, opened the store in 1991. Wendy was a mom of two young kids when she opened the shop and she wanted to find a way to pay the bills, but also take control of her time. Out of the Blue has been growing since then '91 and they have no plans of stopping anytime soon.

This beautiful shop carries modern and vintage clothing from dresses (fancy and casual), jeans, skirts, sweaters, cute simple jewellery, purses and shoes. Not only do they sell clothing and accessories, but they also carry home decor items like our candles (yay), wall art, planters, and more.

Out of the Blue is one of those stores you walk around two or three times and feel like you could keep looking. Oh and you'll want everything. The items are easily accessible and affordable and the store has a super cool vibe. What's even more cool about Out of the Blue is how many local products they carry. We're so thankful for shops like Out of the Blue, not only because they carry our candles, but because they support the community.

 

"I really don't think there is one item in the store where I haven't personally met the maker," Wendy explains. "I like being able to see them, say hello, and actually take a look at their products. There's really no better feeling than when local makers come together to help each other grow their sales"

 

Obviously we love supporting local so WE AGREE X10!
