Design – Maker House


While we were out and about checking out Mikaza Home and Founddesign, we discovered Maker House – what a great store! They are located at 987 Wellington Street and plan to have an e-commerce platform on their site soon.

They really have a bit of everything in this store from candles to lamps to tables to greeting cards as you’ll see from the photos below, and they’re all made by Canadian artisans.

And for a bonus, Brew Donkey has a counter set up in the store. Brew Donkey conducts tours of Ottawa breweries. Someone else does the driving and you get to taste the beer. Stay tuned for a post about that!

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a fellow design junkie, you should definitely check out Maker House.

Maker House was a good find. And we found it because you were looking for the liquor store which is conveniently located right next door.
That big LCBO sign does tend to draw one’s attention. And if memory serves, we both shopped at the LCBO after spending time at Maker House.
I like that 2% of all purchases go back to community projects such as Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and Ottawa Tools Library.
The Hintonburg neighbourhood is really becoming a go-to place for everything – design, baked goods, coffee –
– the Hintonbourg Public House –
– plus there’s even a great Christmas store that’s open all year.
And a great fabric store, which are few and far between these days.
And as we said in the post, Brew Donkey has a counter inside Maker House.
We’ll definitely be checking that out – I think we need to get a group together and take a brewery tour.
Sounds like a plan – stay tuned everyone!
