About Us

Meet Jennifer and Brent

A six-month backpacking trip through Africa in the early 1990s inspired the creation of Buckstone Inc. Co-owners Jennifer McNutt Bywater and Brent Bywater were blown away by the craftsmanship of the local artisans and decided to purchase a small number of products to bring back to the North Bay area. Soon after discovering these unique items, they became North Bay’s very first street vendors.




Our Mission

To develop a prosperous business, which will be admired and respected for its contribution to the goodwill and personal success of its employees and associates.
Our suppliers from Indonesia and other countries will receive our support and concern for their well being, with our strong regard for human rights, and the dignity which they deserve.
We will be a customer-driven company which will serve our community and encourage our employees and associates to do likewise.
Our clients will receive excellence through quality products, service, and a positive attitude.
Our expectation is, that by empowering our management team to grow, and by stimulating personal development, fostering the qualities of integrity and respect for others, a dynamic and successful organization will result.
