Whimsical Vintage Creations started as a home-based business only three years ago and has quickly grown into a full retail operation. Whimsical Vintage Creations refinishes and sells furniture, teaches classes and workshops, and carries local vendors’ goods such as a complete line of paint and finishing products.
According to owner Kyla Tetley, “Stony Plain is the perfect balance of local charm meets urban bustle. It’s home to numerous unique small shops, which makes it an ideal location for boutique shoppers. It’s also close enough to Edmonton to draw destination shoppers while being far enough out that it doesn’t feel commercial.”
“Through Stony Plain we have had the opportunity to network and create relationships with other businesses. We have been provided with wonderful maps for shoppers, and overall have felt very welcome. Stony Plain’s use of social media provides exposure in addition to being informative. Their commitment to keeping Stony Plain beautiful is pleasing to our customers.”
When considering opening a business in Stony Plain, Tetley continues, “If you are committed to running a business, Stony Plain is a great place to base it. The resources and supports are in place, and other business owners are very welcoming.”
