Established in 2009 in Toronto, Coal Miner's Daughter is the product of many nights discussing how lovely it would be if we could start up our own little shops and share our love of jewellery and fashion with the world, little did we know at the time that we would end up building it together!
Coal Miner's Daughter is made up of owners Janine Haller and Krysten Caddy, along with an amazing team of shop gals. Janine worked in wardrobe at Stratford, the Canadian Opera Company, and Young People's Theatre after studying Costume Design at Dalhousie. Interesting fact: Krysten's great grandmother Rosilla (Rose for short) was a real Coal Miner's Daughter and worked at the Dominion Dress Company in Brantford, ON in the 1930's.
We specialize primarily in Canadian clothing, jewellery, and accessories designers and makers (many of them local), including Janine's clothing designs. Janine's line, Haller, focuses on small run production that she makes by hand, featuring easygoing shapes that feel great on. Keep an eye out for Haller at all of our shops. Among the jewellery collections we show you will also find designs in sterling silver and gemstone designed and made by Krysten.
Our goal is to have no less than 80% Canadian designers and brands in our stores. Canadian brands you'll find at Coal Miner's Daughter are Valerie Dumaine, Eve Gravel, Birds of North America, Pink Martini, Melissa Nepton, Jennifer Glasgow, and Sara Duke (just to name a few - there are so many more!). An example of non-Canadian brands you will find are Des Petites Hauts from Paris, ELK from Australia, and Noa Noa from Denmark.
If there is something specific you're looking for, feel free to contact us to see if we have it in one of the shops.
