How long have you been in business?

I am the proud owner of Wee Piggies and Paws have been since 2010.

Why did you start the business?

Actually funny story……I heard about Wee Piggies and Paws back in Ontario in 2007 when my daughter was born. She was 5 weeks early weighing in at 5’2 lbs and had the smallest hands and feet. We decided to get a shadowbox done, which had a picture of her and castings of her hand and foot. My husband was at first not keen on spending the money to get the shadowbox, little did we know I would get 3 hahaha one for us, one for my mom and one for his mom. This caused a bit of a fight 🙂 but as time went by this became our most cherished piece of art.
When we moved to Kelowna everyone that came over complimented on this shadowbox and asked where I got it done and how they could get one. So my husband came up with the idea of us starting a Wee Piggies out here in the Okanagan. He researching the company which is a franchise to see if it would be worth getting into and next thing you know we bought the franchise for Kelowna. Funny that he was the one who needed convincing in the first place that the money was worth getting the castings done of my 5 lb daughter.
