Gold Winner Nicole McInnis, Oh Dina!

Silver Winner Holly Nauss, Promise of a Pearl

Bronze Winner Amy Chandler, Friday55

“I’m honestly so surprised I won again. I just am,” says Nicole McInnis, who creates modern bridal headpieces with a vintage vibe under the moniker Oh Dina! “We live in this place where there’s so many amazing artists...wining gold again is beyond me.” In the past year, McInnis has moved to a new space in Dartmouth—“We have really high ceilings and there are flowers hanging everywhere, it’s really dreamy”—and racking up Instagram followers (over 10K). “I’m making stuff and shipping stuff,” she says. “I’d like to thank the Canada Post ladies in the Dartmouth Shoppers. They’re my girls.”
