Our Story

True North was created out of love for the handmade community + our local makers. 
We offer finely curated handcrafted, locally made goods for you and your home. You’ll notice a common nature theme throughout the store. Most of our products are crafted using natural resources and eco-friendly materials and draw inspiration from our beautiful earth. If you're looking for something special your home, yourself, or to give as a unique gift, we have an extensive offering in-shop, and a growing online inventory.

In our store window, we house a workbench for our artists to set up and create. We also hold artist demos and pop-ups. Collaborating with our makers + our community is one our favorite things. Providing a platform to showcase artists, show you the hands behind their creations, and telling their stories is our True North. 

 

Michelle opened True North in March of 2015. She is the founder, and artist behind the True North jewelry brand. 

We also have another human who adds a special layer of awesome to our shop...Gwen!

 

Gwen started with us as an intern in Fall 2018, and she came on board permanently after.

You will also find the lovely Lily in shop from time to time lending a helping hand. 

 

Lily interned with us in Winter 2016, then came on board permanently after.
