My Little Shop In Fernwood

As I think on what to write about for the blog, one topic always comes to mind YOU!

After all, how could I focus on anything else when you’ve played such a huge role in getting me where I am today? It just wouldn’t feel right!

So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. 

Your support has allowed me to bring my dreams to life and create a space that is one-of-a kind, just like you!

To help you understand just how crucial your role has been in all of this, let’s check out some  reasons supporting local businesses matters. 

Why Does Your Choice to Shop Local Matter?

When you shop local, you’re helping keep Fernwood’s charming character alive. The money you spend in our lovely little neighbourhood, stays in it! The sales tax from your purchases are reinvested into the community, so you can feel good knowing you’re making a difference close to home!

When you visit CREAM Life + Style, you also get to experience the warm ambiance that I have created, and I think it’s pretty special. My hope is to inspire you to create a home and personal style that reflects your true self, brings you joy!  By featuring well made vintage and unique items from local makers, there’s a little bit of everything in store. I’ve pulled major inspiration from the 60’s & 70’s consciousness of love, creativity and rock n’ roll counterculture and when you shop local, you get to experience the groovy space yourself! 

I’m constantly overwhelmed by the amount of amazing humans who step into my shop and exclaim how much they love the space – I’m eternally grateful to have been able to turn my passion into a profession and I invite you to come in and visit me yourself. And, I know I’m not alone in feeling the love.

The incredible small business owners at the following local shops appreciate your support just as well. So here’s a little shoutout, make sure to check them out online or visit them in-store:
