With customer testimonials like “Can’t wait to hold my next dinner party. The pepper and salt mill will be the centre piece of my table setting” or “I was visiting from (St Louis) . . . and purchased one of your pepper mills. OMG – it is not only beautiful but works incredibly”, it is no wonder that proprietors Irwin and Susan Seidman are delighted with the direction their artisan micro business is taking.
After many years in an urban corporate environment, the couple decided to pursue the dream of a small town artisan lifestyle. They settled in Southwestern Ontario (Owen Sound) and in 2010 opened Spicemills.ca. Irwin, who does all the hands-on design and fine crafting says that he has always enjoyed working with wood.
