Our Story

Hi, I'm Anita, and I have a passion for bringing together locally-made products and creating ease for you to send them as gifts! I started my business in 2020. Maybe like you, I've attempted many times to put together parcels filled with local 1000 Islands products.

Feeling discouraged by the task of trying to track down my favorite artisans, it was not without its disappointments! Going from shop to shop only to find out their products are no longer available at that location or even worse, I've pulled up to that quaint little shop, only to discover they have moved or permanently closed. Heartbreaking on so many levels! Has this been your experience? And so begins the 1000 Islands Box. We do all the legwork for you as we partner with some of the most talented and passionate makers you will meet!

Their stories are beautiful, and their products are of the highest quality.

Each box is carefully curated, hand-packed, and filled with only the best locally made 1000 Islands Region products. They are perfect for treating yourself or gifting to a loved one!

Our Mission:

Grow our local economy from the grassroots up, shine a light on our beautiful 1000 Islands Region and the makers that live here.
