About

Here to inspire and add to the beauty.

Hello! Welcome to Yukon Jim's Trading Co. Yukon Jim's was created to share my love for beautiful things, ideas and inspirations with you. Yukon Jim's was born after watching the film "The Revenant". I have always been an artist and have worked in retail, occasional sales and selling antiques most of my adult life. After watching the movie, it reminded me of the trappers and traders of old who would scour the earth finding beautiful treasures to bring back home and share with the world. That was where my dilemma started, I could only share my art locally(which I love), but wanted to find a platform to share it with the world. So when I found Etsy I decided that would be my platform.

Growing up in the north, I also love the Romance and texture of nature and those who harvest and create from it. My great grandfather was from Sweden and worked as a lumber jack when he was young up in Canada. It's inspiring to think of the hard work and fortitude it took for these men to blaze a future for us all. I love Christmas too! I have been making Christmas ornaments for years and collecting vintage Holiday treasures. Growing up I remember going to my grand parents house and sitting under the tree looking at all the beautiful decorations and ornaments. Setting up the Christmas tree was my favorite thing, unpacking the ornaments one by one like it was a new found treasure all over again. I love that feeling and nostalgia these things created, was always a time of generosity and love. So Yukon Jim strives to share these experiences with you through his handmade and repurposed ornaments and vintage treasures.

Yukon Jim's also loves to promote the idea of "LOVE" in all of it's wonderful forms. I was inspired to create a line of LGBTQ ornaments after finding there wasn't a huge selection out there for my community. These are my favorite ornaments to make, it's like exploring a whole new territory. I hope my rainbow friends and their families enjoy these as much as I enjoy making them!

And as always.....ADD TO THE BEAUTY!
