Featured Business - The Flamingo

The Flamingo opened its doors on October 1st, 2022. The store is a collection of art, home decor, apparel, wellness, stationery and much more sourced by owners Navin and Tanya Monteiro (including their own amazing work!). Everything in the store is hand picked and sourced by real people who love supporting artists and small businesses. 

Products are sourced through different mediums, some directly from manufacturers, some from known vendors and some from other small businesses around the world. The Flamingo carries products that have been bought from India, UK, Japan, Australia and some right at home in Canada and the U.S.

The focus is on pieces pertaining to mental health and body positivity. Tanya works with a bunch of different mediums, sewing, drawing, painting, constructing and making Resin pieces. Tanya and Navin make things that are loud, they’re out there and they’re telling little humans that representation exists and it’s ok to make our own rules.

Over the years it became a shop that supports marginalized communities, women empowerment with focus on making art affordable and accessible while sticking to our motto – B.U.M -being unapologetically myself!
