Hi there, I’m Carla. I am the owner of Little Smoky Gift Co. I am also “Mom” to one boy and three girls. My husband and I farm in Little Smoky, AB (barely a map dot approx 45km south of Valleyview in northern AB).
Rural living is so much of the “why” that inspired me to create my business. I’ve always liked the idea of supporting local, however the logistics of doing so somehow didn’t seem to fit my current stage in life. Four children and full-time farming means that when I go into town or to the city (which is Grande Prairie for me), my list is long with farm parts to pick up and a monthly grocery list to fulfill. It certainly doesn’t allow for perusing cute little shops or leisurely shopping for local treasures. With no speciality boutiques in the nearest town, I decided to start Little Smoky Gift Co.; somewhere where you can shop many local and Canadian-made businesses and products, and even have a complete gift of local delights made up and delivered, saving time and money!
I love helping others create beautiful gifts for life’s special occasions, I’d love to hear from you!
