Hello I’m Lily Ellis and welcome to Birch + Bird! This is where I share my creative thoughts and design inspiration. You can also visit my new shop in historic Downtown Abbotsford, Spruce Collective, next time you’re in town. Thanks for reading!

Founded by Lily Ellis + Rachel Janzen in 2010 out of a mutual love of thrifting, simple living and great design. Together we started a small Etsy shop and soon hosted four vintage and handmade markets, The Old School Market and Fieldstone Vintage Market, and Scout Handmade + Vintage Market in our hometown of Abbotsford, BC.  Rachel and her family have relocated to Florida, where she is taking a break from blogging and enjoying fun in the sun with her family. Lily (me!) opened a new bricks + mortar store, Spruce Collective, in Abbotsford BC in Fall 2012 alongside 4 other like-minded girls. Thanks for visiting Birch + Bird!
