Who We Are
We appreciate your visit! Our shop specialises in selling one-of-a-kind, handmade, and regionally produced things made by local artisans, sourced from across Canada.
This. Is. Local. celebrates the originality and calibre that many regional artisans provide. We deliver a one-of-a-kind shopping experience that is special to our area and unmatched due to the excellent quality and uniqueness of our merchandise. Our economy is based on small businesses, and supporting an artisan has a positive and significant ripple effect.
You can find our one-of-a-kind boutique inside of our historic building, which is located just above Riverside Grill in the centre of downtown Bolton. With the pieces constantly changing, there is always something new to behold. You don't need to search any farther if you're looking for a special gift for someone important in your life or if you want to collaborate with an artisan to have something made to order.
This. Is. Local. fosters community by bringing together artisans and ethical consumers who want to feel good about their purchases. Now more than ever it’s important that people consider what they buy, and who they buy from, as shopping local directly contributes to the local community rather than a giant chain or a conglomerate.
Plus, you can be sure to find the best handmade goods available when you shop at This Is Local!
