At a time when we're being bombarded with terrifying news updates, and of nonstop worry about family and friends, is it really necessary to put on a pretty necklace, a dangly pair of earrings or pop in a pair of studs? The answer is yes. It allows us to have a small glimmer of normalcy, a fleeting moment of reprieve, and it can definitely be a mood booster.
Jewellery quickly became a very important section of our little shop. It was always important to carry Canadian artists, who care about our environment, our people, and companies who stand by their craftsmanship.

jj+rr is designed and curated not too far from home in beautiful Toronto, Ontario! Waidy & her sister Jenny, go above and beyond for their retailers, their pride for their company shines like a bright beacon. Waidy's start in the jewelry & accessory business began while working her way through Ryerson University, when a coworker admired a hair accessory, of Waidy's own design, and purchased it right on the spot! At that moment there was no way stopping them from reaching for the stars! FAB's pieces have been featured in Seventeen, In Style, Teen Vogue, Self, Toronto Fashion, Chatelaine, Flare, and more!!!
Where did jj+rr's name come from? It was created from family, the glue that holds us together. It was created from the love of Waidy's two sons Jaden and Ryan + Jenny and her husband Rick...you can't get much cuter than that!
Glass House Goods is a one woman show from Napanee, Ontario. Ricki had a desire to create a brand like she hadn’t seen before. GHG was created to remind women of their strengths, their truth, and their sass in a stylish way. Leaving only the wearer with the knowledge of the secret message hidden on the inside! Glass House Goods created a bracelet that is exclusive to Red Brick Emporium. A simple, everyday reminder just for our RBE lovelies!
Ricki just launched a new line called Our Girls. This new line is designed to remind you of the girl you once were, and the girl you might be raising, a niece, a god daughter or a family friend. A line to remind them of their strength, fierceness, and heart.
