Fun and sassy Canadian made gifts & goods


One Sixty One started with our first store in Cambridge, Ontario. As the shop became more established, we knew quite quickly that it was time to expand and look for a second location! We found a location in picturesque Paris, Ontario. After some time, the decision was made to close the Cambridge store to focus on growing our new store.

Supporting small businesses is essential for the growth and prosperity of our local economy. It’s no secret that the last few years have been difficult. We are proud to offer unique handmade items from over 150 artisans from all across Canada in an effort to help make it easier for people to shop small. We also have an in-store refillery station for our eco-conscious patrons! 

Come in and check out all of the amazingly talented local artisans, who just may be your neighbour.


Owner of One Sixty One and Hound Corner, Valerie knows what it means to be a small business. That’s where her passion for supporting small and local comes from! When she isn’t curating small shop finds or baking delicious treats for your canine best friend, she can be found thrifting, reading or relaxing at home.



There is such a huge selection of unique items to choose from and all are fairly reasonably priced. The owner is so nice and always takes the time to chat with her customers.

I happened upon this little jewel searching for bio degradable dental floss. I went in and spoke with the shopkeeper. She was sweet and had so many unique things in her store.

Really friendly and knowledgeable owner/staff. Super welcoming, answered all my questions and knew the creator of each item the shop had for sale!

It’s about time downtown Hespeler got a store like this, a great little one stop shop for a nice gift. Val is very knowledgeable and it’s obvious she puts a lot of thought and care into curating her store.

There is no other store quite like this one. The selection, the service, the atmosphere all are beyond expectations.
