About Us

Made in the Maritimes is owned and operated by Joel Kelly and Mark Smith, two business professionals with extensive marketing and business experience. Along with our dedicated staff of 8, our mission is to promote the arts and foster entrepreneurship and small business growth across the Canadian Maritimes.

We are taking the buy-local movement to a regional level. All of the items in our store are handmade in the Canadian Maritimes. Not only will you be supporting independent business, you will be part of increasing the exposure of artisan producers from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

Our mission is to promote contemporary, high-quality Canadian Maritime made art, craft and specialty goods while supporting the growth of existing, and inspiring future artisan entrepreneurs.
