this is a sponsored post - thank you for supporting the unique brands that, in turn, support me
If I was going to open a online store it would be a carbon copy of In Kind. Each unique item is hand picked and ethically made - a beautiful collection of clothes, body products, toys and heirloom pieces that are timeless in their look and quality.
Krystin McCourt created In Kind to satisfy her need to create and collate. Once the owner of an etsy store, Krystin discovered an abundance of likeminded artists and makers through the creative blogging community and she admits that she's been obsessively curating Pinterest boards and wish lists ever since.
Following the birth of her third baby Krystin made the decision to invest her creative energy into an online store and In Kind was launched soon after. "Running a small business from home is what makes the most sense for me right now," she says. "Mothering my children will always be my priority but I feel that I can also handle the work that goes into In Kind. I really enjoy supporting talented artists and small businesses and helping them share their beautifully made, high quality products with the world."
In her quest to discover unique products, Krystin looks for high quality and originality without ever compromising function and comfort; heirloom items that can be loved and passed down to the next generation. "I believe that less is more and by being more mindful of what we choose to bring into our homes we can change the way we live our lives," she says. Whilst her taste is undoubtedly classic and elegant, she is inspired by her children and her home and the authentic spirit of the prairies and the Rocky Mountains. Every item in her store embodies simplicity, beauty and a touch of nostalgia. In Kind's best-selling items include COMMONFOLK Bears - handmade, they're buttery soft and a little grumpy looking; the indulgent range of Herbivore Botanicals; Peg and Awl botanical necklaces; Chloe May Brown's ceramic hanging planters and OYOY's Ayo cushions. Krystin kindly donates 25% of all proceeds to the Canadian Cancer Society in loving memory of her Uncle who passed away in 2005. "In Kind is my way of connecting with others. Motherhood can be an isolating experience at times and I feel really fortunate to have already met so many inspiring women who strive to support and empower one another. I hope to enjoy working on this new venture for as long as it lasts, supporting the artists and makers I choose to highlight and sparking joy with each order I send off," she says.
