One Small Room began as a mobile children's boutique & online store and has since evolved into a permanent storefront location in Squamish BC. Launched in 2013, we offer stylish, unique, and high quality children's wear with a focus on local, independent, and/or environmentally responsible designers. Our boutique also carries excellent quality, carefully selected second-hand children's clothing.
"One Small Room" was the name of our family's toy store located in small-town Manitoba in the 1970's (that's my husband in the newspaper ad!). The focus of the original store was on unique, locally handmade wooden toys. Today, our boutique focuses on children's wear sourced from a thoughtfully curated group of designers, as well as providing the community with an opportunity for kid's clothing to be passed on and re-used.
The name "One Small Room" not only has meaning for us as a family, but our shop literally is a very small room - we started our operations out of a converted 1981 Chevy step van with a total area of 80 square feet. We've since "expanded" into our permanent storefront location, which is still a pretty tiny 380 square feet.
