What are customers likely to find or experience in your shop?
Our hope is that customers will find something unique and interesting, something they didn’t know they were looking for or needed. We are very fortunate to have so many local talented artisans and that we are able to showcase their amazing works of art in our stores.
Why do you love what you do?
I love hearing people say they love our store and that we have created a destination where people travel from both local and from a far to experience our shop and the products we offer. We try our best to provide our customer with more than just great product, we aim to provide them with an experience. Anyone can go into a shop and buy something, but I want them to remember the experience they had that day when they bought that dress, gift or home accessory. It should be a memory to them:)
Why do you feel St. Jacobs is a great place to shop/dine and visit?
St. Jacobs is so quaint...it’s a hidden gem only minutes from a big city. We have a great selection of independent store owners and crafters (bakery, brewery, coffee roaster, potter, broom maker, soap market and pet bakery) just to name a few. What I love most about this little village is, you get the feeling of stepping away from the hustle and bustle of life. You can unplug and recharge here. It’s so beautiful in so many ways.
