Tis’ the season of shopping and I say shop small business or local retailers..!
There are so many shopping opportunities outside of big retail and box stores. Many unique services, re-purposed and one of a kind hand crafted products, things to wear, things to eat, things to look at, the list is plenty.
A purchased item becomes like a proverbial skipping rock when shopping from a small business. The rings in the water are the effects that this purchase has on everyone.
It’s not just a purchase; this is an acknowledgement to these people, to their crafts.
I also like to think of how the actual product is conceived. When an owner/operator has built their product or service from a dream this offering is now dipped in passion and you forever know that you will be receiving a reputable product or service that was built from a clean conscious and a lighter carbon footprint.
The foundation of your product/service was built on pride, love and passion.

A bit of what you may not have known
Rowena’s has been in its current location for 13 years and was started from a dream and produced with a lot of creativity due to a meagre budget. The renovation work to the shop were done by hand and with the influence of style and creative flair the second hand fixtures used to put her together gave Rowena’s her own unique style.
At the time Whyte Ave was not the trendiest shopping strip in the city that is now. In the beginning the owner did not take a wage and worked part time in order to grow the business.
Rowena’s is named after the Owner’s Grandmother; Kathleen Rowena Cameron and makes great contributions towards the community by supporting many non-profit organisations and events through out the year.
