What is your business called and what does it do?

The Farmhouse – I sell silk florals, kitchen & bath items along with accents including rustic signage, galvanized items & candles.

What made you want to do this work?

I have always loved decorating and interior design, prior to going on Maternity leave this past year I had come up with the idea to start The Farmhouse and the time had finally come where my leave had ended and it was time for me to start a new chapter!

What problem does this solve?

My website allows people to shop for items from the luxury of their own home at a cost-efficient price.

Who are your clientele/demographics?

Age 18 – 65, women & men.

How does your business make money? How does it work?

We retail online; however, the next game plan would be to open a small studio!

Where in Calgary can we find your profession?

Online currently!

What is the best question a prospective customer could ask a member of your profession when comparing services?

“What are your products made of?”

Our products are non toxic and vegan free!

“Where do you see yourself in the next 5 to 10 years and what makes you stand out from other rustic brands?”

We want to open a small shop while we continue our online business! Along with making your homes cozy and comfortable, In 5-10 years we also hope to make a large difference as a company who has done our part in helping animal rescue agency’s. For every purchase made we donate a percentage to our local pet rescue to help animals in need.

What is the best part about what you do? What is the worst part?

The best part of what I do is help create a cozy space for customers to relax in! A downfall of what I do is not yet having a larger space for retail!
