‘Cheerfully Made is not just a retail shop, but a way to empower entrepreneurs, build community and make the world a more cheerful place.’

This bright and cheery shop, located in the heart of Almonte’s historic downtown, is filled with handmade goods and gift items. Cheerfully Made is dedicated to supporting the Canadian craft community by offering makers and entrepreneurs quality opportunities to showcase their work, grow their businesses and make a life doing what they love.

Founder, Emily Arbour, has been organizing markets since 2010. Inspired by the craft markets she had taken part in she decided to open a retail shop in 2013. She envisioned a brick and motor extension of the shows featuring Canadian makers and their products. Cheerfully Made Goods and Market has grown to feature 60 brands, many of them local, and support a great number of makers, artists and entrepreneurs from across the country.
