Better than Before


Owls and foxes and monkeys, oh my! Anne Queen salvages high-quality fabric and clothing from second-hand stores and transforms them into durable tote bags, doorstops, cushions, potholders, stuffed animals -- we just never know what she will think of next! Not just sewing, Anne has tried about every craft out there and also does tie dye, crochet, and fabric collage; she can't wait to retire from teaching so she can devote more time to creating as well as facilitating DIY crafting workshops in the community. You can also send here a treasured sweater or blanket and she will create a custom-made keepsake -- great for personalized gifts!


Order your favourite local goods for pick up or home delivery. Prices are the producers' prices, you just pay a small shopping fee of $5.


We want to help you feel engaged in our local economy by helping you get to know the small producers and artisans in our community.


We hope the Homegrown Hamper will become a meeting ground for people to share and learn from one another.
