The first day of summer may be marked in the June calendar, but we all know that the July long weekend is when we know it’s official. And at Klas squared we couldn’t be happier – summer is our absolute favourite time of year. After enjoying a weekend with family, we are back at it this holiday Monday as we gear up and kick off the second half of the year! And what better way to kick it off then to celebrate this great nation we call home?
At Klas squared we are proud to be Canadian. We source as many of our materials as possible from local suppliers and all our pieces are designed and handcrafted here at home. Our summer markets have always been a great opportunity to share our designs with people across the country, and across the world – everyone gets to take a piece of Canada home with them. At our last market in Toronto, we had the pleasure to meet two childhood friends from South Africa who now live in England and Canada. Over the years they have met in different areas of the world and to commemorate their reunion with a matching piece of jewelry. Lucky for us, they chose Klas squared shine earrings to take home with them.
Our next stop will be the Home County Festival in London followed by Matiowski’s Market in Kenora – two events that have been apart of our summer since our inception. Not only are they a great opportunity to connect with friends both old and new, but they also provide us with the inspiration and setting to test new ideas. But maybe our favourite part is meeting all the wonderful vendors who can proudly say their products are made in Canada. In the spirit of Canada’s birthday month, we encourage you to celebrate by shopping local to support the artisans, craftspeople, and farmers in your community.
And while we’re on the topic of celebrations, perhaps one of the busiest party seasons of the year is upon us – weddings! Over our almost twelve years in business, we have helped to accessorize brides, bridesmaids, mother and grandmothers of both bride and groom, and any woman looking to find the perfect pairing for her party dress. Take a browse on the website, send us a note or give us a call, and let us know how we can help you feel your best on that special day!
Leave us a note below and let us know your plans for the summer. Hope to see you soon!
