We are a family business of Mom and Daughters! A fashion destination for him and her. I found myself growing up always wanting to play “dress up” in my mothers very fashionable head turning styles. From there I watched my four daughters keenly desiring to do the same in my closet. The seed was sown and in 1990 we opened Designers For Him And Her, located in Exeter and Bayfield, Ontario.

Metanoia Boutique is a curated marketplace of independent sustainable brands.
Metanoia Boutique started as an idea: it should be easier to find ethically made, sustainable fashion.
I learned about the detrimental impact the fashion industry has on the environment and the mistreatment faced by many of the garment industry’s workers during my first year of studies in Fashion Business Management at Seneca College. I promised myself that I would choose to support brands that were doing what they could to be responsible producers.
It started by changing my own shopping habits: ditching fast fashion and researching brands that fit my values. Turns out it is challenging to find items that fit my style at a price point I could afford. I also tried to thrift pieces when I found something missing in my wardrobe. However, even thrifting had its drawbacks. It takes time, dedication, and patience. Now you see why most people would turn to a $5 basic T-shirt at any fast fashion retailer where it falls apart within a few wears, ends up in a landfill and is replaced with another $5 T-shirt.
What if you could invest in a well made T-shirt for a slightly higher upfront cost that would last you a lifetime, lowering the cost per wear, and didn’t harm garment workers and the planet in the process?
Noah’s Ark started in the autumn of 1992 as a vision to reach into the community of Exeter providing a positive shopping atmosphere where people could come and spend little on clothing and select other items donated from towns people.
Noah’s Ark showcases many items of clothing for all ages and in all styles. In addition there is also has toys, music, some jewelry and household goods – all donated from community members.
Items are sorted carefully and priced accordingly that meet within in most all person’s budget. Many items are priced lower than low and when a ministry opportunity presents itself to any of the three staff members and or a dozen volunteers, the opportunity to bless a person in need is the mission of the day. This prompts an opportunity to minister the “Good News” to those that have ears and as well an open door to pray with those that need prayer.
Many people in Exeter and surrounding area, as well as visiting missionaries, have been blessed by the generosity of the community through the extension of Noah’s Ark mission.

Over the next twenty years, from the same location in Exeter Ontairo, Rey Wuerth and his wife Willa moved the shoe repair business toward retail sales of footwear, skates, roller-skates, and accessories.
Third Generation …
