What inspired you to start your business?
Wanting to support local artisans and offer more shopping variety to women.
What is your business philosophy?

Creating a positive welcoming space where local women can shop and feel great in their new purchases!
What is the secret to your success?
Having products the customers love and can’t find locally except for at the artisan markets, making it very convenient to have over 20 different BC designers featured in one place where you can try the pieces on before buying.
After living in Vancouver most of my adult life, Tamara moved to the Island 4 years ago and loves it! She lives with her husband and 2 children in Nanaimo, and enjoys all the outdoor activities like boating in the summer. She loves Christmas and can’t wait to decorate my new store and participate in the Ladysmith Christmas festivities this year as a business owner instead of just a visitor. 🙂
