It’s crazy that the Christmas Features have come to an end. This year I was able to feature 14 amazing small businesses. I can’t express my gratitude enough to these smalls shops for allowing me to feature them. – Thank you!
Our last and final Christmas Feature is Lavender and Mint Boutique, this small shop is based in Tsawwassen, BC. Lyndsay is the founder and owner of Lavender and Mint Boutique, but she is also a mother to three beautiful girls, and a wife to a supportive husband. Her business started when they lived in Richmond but it has since moved to Tsawwassen when they moved there.
From what started out with a 30-year-old sewing machine and a mother deciding to make her own children’s clothing when she had her first daughter, has grown into a small shop in the lower mainland creating beautiful hand-made items. Her shop makes everything from Children’s clothing, accessories and also bedding! They can be found online or at Scout and Co in Richmond, BC.
As you can imagine the hardest thing for this small shop is Time Management. Imagine 3 girls under 3, a husband, a household and a small shop! I’m pretty sure Lyndsay has super powers to make all that work!! However with hard work comes much reward, Lyndsay’s favorite part of running her small shop is hearing her customers feedback on the items they have purchased, so if you do purchase something be sure to tell Lyndsay what you think. Her advice “Start small, grow organically and enjoy every minute of it”. What Great advice, how often we are tempted to grow our business by inorganic means.
If you check out their online store you can also find Lyndsay’s blog, where she posts anything from Mommy must haves, recipes to quotes of the day to inspire you! All of their items are machine washable, wash in cold with like fabrics and lay flat to dry! Handle with the same love and care that went into making them.
Lyndsays family’s favorite tradition is actually the same as mine! They get together on Christmas Eve for a big family dinner and at the end they each open one gift, always Christmas Pjs. The Christmas excitement is overflowing, with the lit Christmas tree and all the kids excitement it makes for very heart warming Christmas Tradition.
