Sugar Maple Trading Company is a labor of love, born from a desire to help others develop and practice the daily habit of celebration with the hope of strengthening homes and families.
While the seeds for Sugar Maple were planted long ago, the idea finally blossomed in 2015 when I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Concerns about preserving time and strengthening family connections occupied my thoughts, and I sought ways to make the days last. I began practicing mindfulness--celebrating the everyday moments of my life.
The true "aha!" moment came for me when I reached into my grandmother's amber glass candy dish to get a piece of Swedish Fish for my granddaughter. A memory of sharing the same candy with my grandmother flashed through my mind, and I realized that the candy dish not only held candy but cherished memories as well.
You may not buy a candy dish today, but we hope that you will find something that brings you joy and that your family will cherish for many years.
