“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” – William Morris


Not Your Every Day is an Okanagan-based e-commerce shop created to support local Makers and Creatives while offering something beautiful and original to shoppers with discerning tastes.

Launched in March 2018, Not Your Every Day offers a year-round, online marketplace of quality craft items, artwork, jewellery, home decor, and fun accessories that are made with heart and hand, to make your everyday Not Your Every Day.

Inspired by the depth and breadth of talent around her, Lori-Anne Poirier was motivated to create a platform for area Makers, Creatives, Artists and Artisans, to offer their beautiful wares for sale. At the same time, she felt compelled to offer a series of workshops called “Mind Your Own {Small} Business, to help them take a hobby or table-top talent up a level, to create or increase an income from something they love to do.

Not Your Every Day is a celebration of quality, personalized production, inspiration, style and taking hold of the beauty in life. Whether you’re a maker or a consumer, we believe you’re a fabulously unique individual who has a passion for lifestyle gifts that speak especially to who you are.



In addition to collecting personal, handmade wares (both for the shop and for herself!), Lori-Anne enjoys going on adventures with her husband, Kyle, and their two beautiful children, with the business and family mascot, Sir Tuppence (or Tuppy) in tow. She also has a passion for writing and photography, coffee and collecting old stuff.
