Welcome to Wise Daughters
At Wise Daughters Craft Market in the Junction, you’ll find handmade objects of desire by 75 local artisans. Visit often to see our ever-changing selection of home décor, jewellery, accessories, clothes, toys, and paper products. Wise Daughters offers old fashioned personal service - owner Mary Breen will not only help you find the perfect gift, but can tell you exactly who made it, where and how. If you're not into shopping at the mall or online, this is the place for you!
Our workshops will unleash your creativity, whether you’re a novice or seasoned crafter.
Take our virtual tour to see what Wise Daughters is all about!
