A moment to breathe
With the unfortunate news of Cory’s cancer metastasizing and now at stage 4, we have decided as a family to take the business in a different direction for a minute, allowing us to focus on his treatment and our time together as a family. We will be spending time in the shop to create at our own pace without the obligations of timelines for custom orders. Just for a while. The shop has been and always will be our little piece of heaven on earth but for now, we need to step away from certian commitments that come with custom orders and we will focus on building pieces for our stock until further notice. Again, we appreciate your kindness and your support. We are not closing, just changing the pace a little.
Nick and the boys.
About Kalem's Corner
From our family to yours, thank you for supporting our small business. We add a little piece of our hearts in every project we create, and grateful to be a part of your family and your home in some small way.
Cory, Nick, Kalem and Sammy
This is us!
Get to know a little bit about us, our family and our small business.
The People we love, the Community we grew up in and the Land we respect.
Meet our teenage son Kalem.
He's always smiling, loves to make people laugh, has an incredible memory and is on the Autism Spectrum.
Kalem helps with marketing and of course, fundraising! He is a philanthropist by nature and adores being with people. This business allows him to make our customers smile when he presents them with our creations. His passion for giving and pleasing others has inspired us to do the same, and we do our best to empower him and include him in our little family business.
We dedicate "Kalem's Corner" to our son Kalem with all our love.
Every order is unique and customized. We bring the wood back to its original grain, and start from scratch.
Welcome Signs, Scrabble Family Signs, Planters, Wall art, and seasonal outdoor boards are all handcrafted and customized to whatever look you prefer. Is your living space clean and classy or do you prefer rustic and country?
Add a wreath to your welcome sign for any season from Wreaths by Rachel who can customize your wreath to any colour and style that fits your home decor.
We are more than just a small family business; we are a team who try and encourage our two boys on the spectrum to spread awareness, acceptance and promote inclusivity by advocating for those who may not have a voice.
We have incredible relationships with our community partners and through Kalem's Cause, we fundraise throughout the year to help families from our community who can use a little miracle to get them through a challenging time.
Kalem's Cause is only successful because of the generosity and kind-hearted community we live in. We love this town!
Our Community and Friends
As a family we have had such an amazing network of friends and family supporting us over the years. Dealing with two Autism diagnoses hasn't been easy but our family, friends and community partners are there for us through it all and continue to show their love and support. Sometimes it is as simple as being kind to our kids when visiting their local establishment.
We would like to pay it forward by using our platform to promote some of our incredible local establishments in beautiful SD&G. We invite you to shop local to build a stronger community!
Kalem’s Corner acknowledges that we live, work, and play in the traditional territory of the Mohawk, Haudenosaunee (St Lawrence Iroquois) and Huron-Wendat peoples. We recognize and respect Indigenous Peoples as traditional guardians of this land and the enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories.
Support Kalem's Cause
For the past 10 years, we have raised money for local families who can use a little help during the Christmas holidays. 3 years ago, we launched Kalem's Cause and continued our fundraising efforts through online auctions of some of our pieces. Now you can contribute towards our cause simply by selecting the amount you want to give. All proceeds go towards Kalem's Cause and local families in need. Thank you for your support. #kalemscause #giveback
