Hello there!

Hi there, and thanks for your interest in Local Artisan Boxes!!

Due to some amazing response from my appearance on Chek TV's The Upside on Jan. 19th, I've had to temporarily halt orders so that I can ensure all current February orders can be fulfilled. February boxes are now all spoken for!

Subscriptions and single orders will open up again in early February for the April box. 

In the meantime, please subscribe to my newsletter (in the menu bar up top) and you'll be the first to know when this happens! Thanks again for your interest. I'm thrilled!


My name is Julie Paul, and I'm very excited to share my new venture with the world. Local Artisan Boxes are subscription-based boxes that contain all good things from coastal BC, in particular Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

I'm a Victoria-based writer and massage therapist, and I've been a longtime supporter of products that are local, handmade, and inspiring. We have a plethora of good stuff here--we're very, very lucky. I know some of you have been here before, and may be dearly missing our coastal vibes, and I want to share them with you. These days more than ever, with our limited bubbles and lack of travel, getting a little sweetness delivered to your front porch feels even more special.

Local Artisan Boxes are officially rolling out now, with the next box being delivered in February 2021, on a bi-monthly basis. Subscriptions and single box orders are steadily coming in!

How does it work? You can choose from a single box, or subscribe to one full year of boxes, (6 boxes), and I'll put together a beautiful mix of goodies for you from our amazing local artisans and makers. I keep sustainability and eco-friendliness in mind as I do this--and focus on consumables: items you will actually use or eat or be able to give as gifts. At this point, my intention is to keep the boxes gender-inclusive, although in the future I hope to add options that will cater to more specific audiences. Oh! And I use my writing chops to include a few details about each item and its maker. They are available to ship across Canada, as well as for local customers via free delivery or pick-up.

The December "soft launch" boxes sold out within a few days--thank you so much!! Check out the photos on Instagram, below this page.

If you're a BC creator, please, get in touch by clicking the email icon above. I want to hear about your offerings and consider them for future boxes! And there will be a "joker" in each box, too--an item from another part of Canada that fits with my vision for LABs.

Thank you, and be well. We've made it through 2020. Phew.
