Your Support Leaves an Impact

Success Stories

I could not have ever imagined a life filled with the freedom to create products I love, challenge myself, be incredibly passionate and meet so many fabulous people on a daily basis. LSK has been not only my dream but my baby for the past 6 years. Working every chance I got from the moment I woke up to the wee hours of the night all while building a family. It has given me the freedom to help with expenses and offer my kids things that may not have been possible otherwise. I feel so honoured and proud seeing something I created being loved and worn by others. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to anyone that’s supported me or my brand in any way, you have no idea how much it has touched me and my family.

Farah from LSK

To see familiar faces that come out to each market to shop, say hello, ask about recent events or trips I’ve shared makes my heart explode! You are a big part of my journey, you are my cheerleaders and you are my friends. I’ve had the privilege of knowing many of you with baby bumps and now your kids call me auntie Karen and run over to give me hugs! There is so much respect amongst the makers, it’s authentic and a sisterhood that supports one another. To have a sense of belonging to a community that supports local and handmade warms my heart and I hope purchase with purpose continues to grow and inspire other communities to do the same.

Karen from Karamella

“I admire how you turn a market place into one of the most successful selling experiences for a small business.

Your market helped us pay for a family trip to Aruba.”

“I made enough money from home in the last 4 months by posting one photo and you reposting it linking to me to cover the cost of my booth at Picks & Giggles market!”
