We're Elora's original refill destination.
  • For over 3 years we have been offering Eloreans refillable and zero-waste options on a variety of natural household products, body care products and local food items... and the response has been a resounding ‘Yes please!!!’.
  • We thank you for choosing a more sustainable way of shopping and we applaud all local businesses who make an effort to reduce their environmental footprint.

We believe good things come in small batches.

If it wasn’t made by us, or a local artisan, it’s been sourced with care for the producer, the consumer and the environment top-of-mind. Whether you’re looking for home-made comfort food, some basics in bulk, or a unique gift, you’re sure to find something to satisfy your craving or spark your curiosity.

Come in, poke around and take your time.
We think you’ll be surprised and delighted.

“We’re not big... but we’re small.”
—the late, great Stuart McLean
