NOMI was founded in 2007 by Kristi Cross, who envisioned a storefront that would exhibit her jewellery designs alongside other Canadian handmade products. The name NOMI honours her supportive parents who always encouraged her to follow her dreams: (NO)buyuki, her father’s name, and (MI)tzuko her mother’s.
After many years on Newmarket, Ontario’s historic Main Street, it has become a place for locals to discover unique handcrafted gifts created by local artists. It is with the support of these very loyal regular customers that NOMI has flourished.
Sixteen years after opening, shopping habits have changed, so NOMI has increased its online presence to expand its reach across Canada.
