Featuring Katrina Petryshyn, founder of The Makers Keep
While living in South Africa, Katreenah Jewellery owner Katrina Petryshyn, came across a co-op store in Cape Town that sparked an ambition to own her own store.
With an undeniable passion for local and handmade goods, Katrina’s goal was to provide local businesses a place to display their product in a market-like environment. She wanted the store to be somewhere you could shop those great market goods, every day in one place. With the support of her amazing husband Dave, family, and friends she was determined to make it happen.
After finding out she was pregnant, the store took a back seat for a while, while Katrina focused on her family. She continued to work from home on her jewelry brand, and a year after having a beautiful baby boy, she revisited the idea of the store. Everything came together and in less than 2 months,
"The Makers Keep" was born.
At The Makers Keep you will experience that marketplace vibe in a boutique setting. Not only are you sure to find something amazing, we guarantee you will leave feeling pretty damn good!
Now with two amazing locations, our NEW Maker Space and hundreds of vendors and counting, The Makers Keep is full of quality brands with a variety of products that appeal to everyone. Don't worry about bringing your kids or pets either. With a comfortable seating area and colouring station at our Kingsway store and a kids corner and coffee bar at our Windermere location, your kids won't want to leave! And we can't forget about all those fur babies, so pets are always welcome at our Windermere location!
