Businesses We Love

Updated: Mar 31, 2022

We love people who love Winnipeg. We love it even more when those people create innovative, creative and unique-to-us businesses. CURRENT is about celebrating everything that's best in our city, so here are some of our favourite local wares and shops:


g is for glasses

The ladies at g is for glasses bring in some of the most beautiful and unique glasses from around the world to be featured in their shop on Taylor Avenue. Every pair is a statement, and you're guaranteed to see some shapes and colours you never imaged in a set of spectacles. As an added bonus, their staff are enthusiastic, passionate about glasses and a blast to shop with. Even during Covid-times, the shopping experience is somehow even better - let them curate a selection to flatter your face and elevate your style.

Find them on Instagram or online.


Shop Take Care

Come experience a fresh new take on consignment shopping at Shop Take Care. With locations in Osborne Village and the Exchange District, you'll find a bit of everything you love, presented in a whole new way. Their consignment collection is arranged by colour, their in-house brand House Ghost Collection is gender-neutral, plus they've got accessories, stationary, home-goods and all the little touches that make perfect gifts for you or your loved ones.

Indigo Arrows

Destiny Seymour is a proud Anishinaabe with a Masters in Interior Design. Her heritage and her passion for design combined to create Indigo Arrows, a line of home decor items including pillows, linens, furniture pieces, and quilts. She wants to bring Indigenous art into everyday use, harkening back to a time when her ancestors adorned their tools with beadwork and design. Her goal of a contemporary expression of Indigenous design hits the mark: her beautiful and earthy designs are the right fit for any room, and invite discussion and reflection.

Oh Doughnuts

One thing we've learned is that it's always the right time for a pastry. Oh Doughnuts has you covered whether you're looking for a fun dessert or office snacks that are sure to please. Located in a cozy shop on Broadway, you'll always find something to tempt you on their ever-rotating menu. Get adventurous with bacon-topped doughnuts or play it safe with a classic chocolate dip. You can't go wrong. And you should probably buy one more for later, just in case.

Find them on Instagram or order online.


Coal & Canary

Fresh off a feature on the website for experiencing phenomenal online growth, these candlemakers' flagship store is located in the heart of the city at The Forks. Whether you're relaxing in a bubble bath, journaling out your days' thoughts or sitting down to supper with someone special, everything is better with Coal & Canary candles. They last forever, they're locally-made and with names like "Pink Lips & Limo Trips" and "Top Knot & Tequila Shots," it's easy to find the perfect scent for any mood. Find them on Instagram or shop online.
