Teeny-Tiny & Mighty Aromatic
Posted on July 07 2020
On April 9, 2015 I opened Bespoke Aromatics in downtown Cobourg. Many moons ago I owned 2 health food stores, as well owned a wholesale distributorship known as Natural Sense Aromatherapy.
It was a dream of mine to one day have a boutique devoted to Aromatherapy because I have had a life-long passion for scent. Other than literally hundreds of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy products I also filled my gallery with all the things that I adored such as; vintage styled night-gowns, sparkly rocks, soaps galore, long floral skirts, hippy bags, art, wind chimes and other aromatic delights such as soaps, bath salts and skin care products.
It was a blast, and I couldn't have done it without the help of my daughters and my young side-kick grand-daughter.
The shop became known as the best smelling store in town. The locals wow did they support (truly grateful) and other people came from miles around, because they knew me from my former businesses and have remained clients for 25 years.
Plus we were the only Bar in town that served children.
And then boom - mid-March 2020 the entire world was literally locked down, and we were informed to button the hatches and stay home!
Well actually I didn't stay home, for the first 2 weeks I went down to the store and spent hours cleaning, organizing, thinking, and shedding a few tears.😢
As the weeks passed, in order to protect our family and the health of our customers due to the Covid-19 pandemic I had to make some fast and serious business changes.
June 13, 2020 was our last day in downtown Cobourg, I have moved the business to a 'home-based' and 'online' model.
Or shop in-person by reserving a day and time (evenings too)
