Quality Over Quantity

Sarah Baeumler April 13, 2017 5 Comments

Our economy is heavily reliant on consumption. Us, the consumer, needs to continue purchasing in order for the system to be successful. This is why advertising is omnipresent in our society. The more we buy, the more it helps the economy grow.

This theory has been abused by many brands, they have played on this and help to create a world where we buy for pleasure, we buy without necessity and we buy cheaply and frequently. We buy cheaply, therefore the quality is poor, therefore the item breaks or becomes unusable after a short time, and then we buy again. This has been our condition for the past few decades.


More recently, however, we have seen a change in the way some of us consume. More of us understand that we don’t need as much, we don’t want huge debts and therefore are becoming more conscious consumers. Quality products are more expensive and many can’t afford the prices, but the concept of buying quality, also relies on buying less and when necessary.

With this rise in conscious consumerism, many high-quality brands have emerged onto the scene. One of those here in Canada is Poppy Barley, an Edmonton, Alberta based company that specializes in shoes and accessories.


The ethical brand was thought up by sisters, Justine and Kendall Barber and was established due to their passion for quality materials and ethically manufactured products. Their brand is focused on buying better and buying less. The shoes are designed in Canada and made in family-owned factories in Mexico. Justine and Kendall care deeply about how, where and who makes their items and are transparent in their processes and methods.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kendall a few months ago; her passion, dedication and drive naturally exudes from her every action. Not only is this brand one that cares, but also the design and quality of their shoes and accessories are of the highest. The designs are focused on the classic shoe, but they also push the boundaries and offer some more risqué options.

It is comforting to see such a wonderful brand based in Canada, doing everything they can to help change the outlook of consumers and provide the public with a different option. Consumerism is based on choice, so it’s up to us to choose better, and Poppy Barley is just that.

Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.

I AM AMONG THE MANY THAT SEEK THE HELP OF DR. WAKINA, WHO IS A LOVE SPELL SPECIALIST. MY ROCKY MARRIAGE CRASHED RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES THEREBY CAUSING ME TO MAKE THE DECISION THAT GOT THE DESTINY OF MY FAMILY BACK ON TRACK. DESPITE USING WAKINA SPELL, I MADE SURE MY HUSBAND RECONSIDERED RETUNING BACK TO ME WILLINGLY WITHOUT ANY PRESSURE, BUT THE CASTED LOVE SPELL WORKED ALONGSIDE HIS WILL TO BE WITH HIS FAMILY, THOUGH SOMEONE DID USED MAGIC AGAINST HIM.
DR. WAKINA VIA HIS EMAIL (DR.WAKINALOVETEMPLE@GMAIL.COM) EXPLAINED THE MAGIC THAT MADE HIM TO RUN AWAY FROM RESPONSIBILITIES. DOC SAID THOUGH HE WILL MISS HIS LOVE ONES BUT THE MAGICAL SPIRIT WONT LET HIM COMMUNICATE OR EVEN GO CLOSE TO THEM.
IT WAS A ROUGH MOMENT TO STAY WITHOUT MY HUSBAND FOR ALMOST A YEAR. BUT TODAY, THE MAN I LOVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY HAS BEEN CLEANSED OF EVERY NEGATIVE SPIRITUAL OPERATION BY DOCTOR WAKINA.

Was going to correct that as well Yvonne. Yes, poppy barley is based on Edmonton AB.

I hope that's fake snakeskin trim, because killing an animal solely for fashion is pretty shameful

Love this! One little correction: although Kendall and Justin grew up in BC, Poppy Barley is actually an Edmonton (Alberta) based company.

Not trying to nit-pick; just want to let you know. XO
