Founder Feature: Tuck Shop's Lyndsay Borschke

We work with some very inspiring entrepreneurs and we're lucky to have met them on our journey. Here's our very first founder feature!

Lyndsay Borsche, founder of Tuck Shop Trading Co. 

If you're unfamiliar with Tuck Shop, we promise you'll want one of her touques after visting her site here.

Designed in Canada and ethically manufactured, Tuck Shop's lifestyle goods redefine Canadiana. Founded in 2013, the brand is the result of a lifetime spent between the city and the cabin. 

We asked Lyndsay a few questions about her quarantine routine :)

Your most treasured time of day or daily ritual:

Breakfast mayhem with 3 girls aged 5, 2.5 and 9 months - it's a whirlwind but a treasured time with my girls, and an hour with my trainer, Victoria Bannister from Ultimate Athletics - she's getting my post pregnancy bod back into shape.... even now through Insta and FaceTime sessions.

Your go-to quarantine recipe

Toss up between simply pouring a glass of Chardonnay or assembling a delicate salad with butter lettuces, artichokes, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta and quick garlicky/mustard vinaigrette.  I've been craving light and healthy foods... my girls on the other hand are craving hotdogs and Pizza and are dying to go back to Terroni.  Thankful for the prepared foods at Summerhill Market and Harvest Wagon too!

A book or quote that has made an impact on you:

Do your part; stay apart!

Your favourite LOHN scent:

Lohn x Tuck Shop Grand Portage* obvi:)

* We jumped at the chance to collab with Lyndsay on a candle that would bring the outdoors in. Called 'Grand Portage' it has notes of cedar, pine and last nights fire. You can shop it here.

Right now Tuck Shop's online store is open and offers FREE shipping. They've extended their End of Season sale too. Each online order they receive helps keep their staff employed and increases their ability to survive during this time. Be sure to shop local :)
