This is a very challenging time for so many people and so many small businesses. We love supporting local and wanted to do our part in showcasing some fantastic small businesses.
This week we are speaking with Tabitha Hobbs, owner of Lovely Finds Market. They are an online store based in the Fraser Valley who are passionate about finding Canadian made quality products for you. Their products are hand picked for either being handmade, natural, Eco-friendly or sustainable. They believe it’s important to help the environment, communities, and provide healthier products for families. They are proud to support other small Canadian businesses as well. They currently ship within Canada. You can find them on Instagram, Facebook and on their website.
What made you choose this type of business?
I have a small obsession for natural and Eco friendly products. I have always wanted to start my own business for many years so I did the plunge to start an online store that can also benefit so many more small businesses like myself.
What is your favourite small business (aside from your own)?
I have so many favorite small businesses but if I have to pick one then The Happy Hippy soap company as her Natural soaps are my favorite and of course I carry her line !
If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
My advice for anyone starting out would be to always stay positive and keep going ! Your hard work will pay off one day!
What are your long term business goals?
My long term business goals would be to continue to grow with happy customers, add new makers and products, and create some job opportunities within my company.
What is your funniest/weirdest/most memorable experience with a customer or client?
I don’t believe I have any except happy customers !
If you are like us then you will love our products too.
