Outdoors + New Event + Shout Outs

August, Don't Leave Us! Summer time, and the living is easy but... August is almost over (ahhh!) We've been doing a lot of desk work lately - juggling new Fall apparel designs, work and kids, and some fun new collaboration opportunities. Things get busy and sometimes overwhelming. One of the best cures is a little time with our divine goddess friend, Mother Nature. And there is no better place to take it in than Kootenay Lake! (Yah I know, we're biased, but can you blame us?) Here's some Kootenay and outdoor inspired eye-candy just for you. The highlight of the month was...

We thought we would provide a re-cap on both events as well as throw in some local lovin' in between. If you'd like to settle in for a run through of our "workin' Moms weekend" between Creston and Cranbrook, we've got the goods here.  Workshop - Creston, BC Did you know that we host workshops in the Kootenays and Calgary for small business owners and entrepreneurs?

What's in Store: Spring 2019

What's in Store: Spring 2019

Ah, May. Not quite Spring and not quite Summer, where are we? Well, we are in the midst of a fresh batch of outdoor and Kootenay-inspired gear, so there's that!  We had a ton of fun putting this group of designs together! Because we are a small-scale shop we try give our customers as much variety as we can. We also just love designing, so offering up new looks when we launch a set of apparel gives us room to experiment and a chance for you to own something unique. Our Spring line is now live and we are pumped to once again have our goods stocked at...
