About My Business:


Right In My Own Backyard is a company started in September of 2011owned and operated by Kimberley Thompson to produce backyard accessories. Based in Cornwall, Ontario Canada, Right In My Own Backyard began with a line of what we call the Backyard Bucket which was created with homeowners and businesses in mind so they can keep their outdoor spaces clean and attractive by offering visitors to their premises who smoke a nice, safe place to put out their cigarettes. The Backyard Bucket is made of galvanized metal, and initially we started out with just a simple, hand painted floral design, that we filled with sand for people to use as outdoor ashtrays. Bringing vinyl film into the mix allowed the Backyard Bucket to grow into much more than just a backyard ashtray by opening it up to personalisation with business logos, custom phrases, names, dates and more. Now the Backyard Bucket is an alternative to the traditional gift basket customised to your occasion be it holidays, birthdays, baby showers, retirement etc. Imagine the "Backyard Gift Bucket" as a corporate gift basket with your business logo on the front. Wish aunt Louise a speedy recovery with a personalised get well bucket. A new mother will surely appreciate a gift bucket with her baby's birth details that she can continue to use in the nursery and later on pass the bucket on to her little one to store small toys. As the company grows, we intend to develop the galvanized metal line to include Vases, herb pots, and log holders etc. The outdoor or "backyard" line as we like to call it will expand into backyard signs, mailbox, front door, and window décor, and we also have plans to introduce décor items for inside the home such as vinyl wall art and small accessories like votive holders and seasonal décor using glass wood and terra cotta.
