Westboro Village retailer Magpie Jewellery recently celebrated their milestone birthday with a bang! In-store artist meet-and-greets with Open Fire, Strut, Erin Wallace and Caelen Ellis, cocktails cupcakes – even a photo booth!
From truly humble beginnings, Martin Wright began the Magpie journey with $40 and a dream. He had a vision of a shop filled with an abundance of beautiful things. Poetically named “Magpie”, a bird that obsessed with jewellery and shiny objects; Wright himself, a certified gemologist, accredited appraiser and self-proclaimed lover of wildlife and the outdoors. Magpie has been the go-to spot for uniquely Canadian pieces for years and this year, Faces Magazine’s named Magpie Ottawa’s Favourite Jeweller!
“Everyday at Magpie, we do our best to act in a way we believe is responsible to each other, our customers and our community. We’re looking forward to the next 25 years including the launch of our very own Magpie Signature Jewellery line.” – Martin Wright
Happy birthday Magpie. Here’s to the next 25 years!
