Etsy is amazing. It is a global marketplace for quality hand-made and vintage products. It is a place for creativity and inspiration. It is a collection of talented people, sharing their passion. Canadians are the most innovative and imaginative people on the planet, and they make their mark on the Etsyverse.
Since we are renovation our bathroom, I thought I’d put together selection of bathroom decor and accessories from Etsy shops across Canada.
A good thing to keep on hand in any bathroom is this thoughtfully formulated balm to aid in the soothing and healing of bumps and bruises. Naturally handcrafted in small batches using pure botanicals and oils in the Yukon Territory, Canada, Boo Boo balm is infused with Yukon wild sourced Arnica, Yarrow and Yukon Chamomile (pineapple weed), a touch of clove oil (a natural numbing agent) and Tea Tree essential oil into a base of high quality olive oil and beeswax.

This set of three high resolution archival coral prints can be customize to any colour (although I love the ones selected). The shop has many other fun and nautical themed prints, all created by mom of two Tamara.

Give the bathroom a lovely vintage throwback with tatted lace. One white hand towel and matching facecloth with 100% cotton hand-made tatted edging in light teal.
A proprietary blend of peppermint and spearmint oils infuse this moisturizing bar of handcrafted shea butter soap. This is refreshing soap, reminiscent of a skinny dip in a mountain lake or off the dock at the cottage in moonlight. Cambrian Blue Clay helps draw impurities from the skin and adds a slick glide for shaving. Perfect from face to feet!
One these one of a kind rag rugs would make perfect bathmat or look stunning laying in front of a pedestal sink. Ruth crochets the rugs from repurposed fabrics, that include t-shirts, sheets and polyester-blends All fabric is laundered and cut into strips which are crocheted. What a unique and eco-friendly piece to a bathroom.
Made from mold resistant and sustainable bamboo, water will not pool in this soap dish, giving your soap the ability to dry between uses and making it last longer. Simple clean-line construction meets the natural beauty of bamboo.
This cast iron anchor hook would be a wonderful place to hang a hand towel. I love so much from this shop! The cast-iron pieces (I love the light switch covers too) are painted in crisp whites or bold colours and oscillate between vintage and nautical themes.
Turn you toothbrush into a showstopper. Handmade from solid glass, each holder has a stable, weighted base that likes to stay put. All holders are of original design and entirely handmade from molten hot glass by Toronto artist Brad Turner.
FMC makes everything out of concrete; pendant lights, planters, business card holders, cuff-links, and this industrial-look handmade concrete soap dispenser with stainless steel pump. Sealed with a water-based acrylic satin sealer that is VOC compliant, and cork is adhered to the bottom to protect counter-tops from scratches.

Spruce up the bathroom with some fine art photography. I like this flip-flop collection but SndandPetals has dozens of phonographs to choose from, all signed and dated on the back by the photographer. Visible grain or areas of soft focus are deliberate to give them an artistic and poetic feel.

Keep everything smelling fresh and clean with a lavender sachet from BrindyLinens. The sand dollar block print is made from a real sand dollar found on the beach in Gros Morne National Park. Each sachet is filled with half a cup of french lavender.
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia
Decorate with 100% authentic Nova Scotia surf tumbled frosted sea glass. Cute in a jar, scattered on a shelf, or in a wide vase alongside seashells. Left exactly the way they were found on a beach not far from Liverpool, Nova Scotia, this is the real thing.
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
No room is complete without a little bit of greenery, ans a succulent is a good option for a bathroom that get at least a little bit of light. This beautiful planter is shaped from solid reclaimed butternut tree into a multi-faceted free-form vase. Nicely sanded to bring out the beautiful grain in the wood.
