Supporting Small Towns
We partner with artisans, artists, and entrepreneurs in BC small towns with populations under 45K.
Giving With Kindness
We believe a single act of kindness can create a ripple effect, find out how we pair kindness with every purchase.
Promoting Local Adventures
Each season we feature a different regional district and highlight what makes it special.
This is more than e-commerce, it's a movement.
Our vision is a world that values and supports small towns and those who make them home, but we can't do it without you. With each purchase, we have the power to make positive change. Our mission is to love people, inspire community, and promote small town adventures throughout British Columbia.
Spread the word, join the movement.
Giving with Love
We pair every purchase with an act of kindness in the North Okanagan. During the heat wave in June, we offered free exterior window cleaning for seniors.
Be kind, share freely, and treat a loved one (or yourself!) with the gift of local.
Our seasonal, curated subscription boxes are packed with love and filled with handmade products from entrepreneurs in small towns.
Each box features a different regional district in BC and contains 5-7 gifts made especially for you.
Products include housewares and décor, beauty and personal care, gourmet, accessories, stationary, and artwork. The product selections will change to reflect the values of the regions and give you an idea of what these towns have to offer.
We love reading your feedback!
‟I wanted to let you know what a joy it was to open my first (but certainly not my last) Townships and Tales subscription box! The products and their packaging were professional, and beautiful, and I really appreciated the smell of the products in the box. I immediately and will always associate the Kootenays with a lovely scent! My Christmas gift giving this year will be so incredibly easy!”

East Kootenay Box
‟Wow!! I cannot believe this. I’m shocked and almost in tears. As soon as I took the box from the mailbox, I could smell the beautiful scents through the box! Unbelievable. It’s packed so perfectly I’m almost afraid to disturb it all inside! The care and detail that is put in this box is amazing. You can tell it’s not just thrown together, but packaged with love and care and gentle hands.”
‟Thank you for your lovely box, I loved it all!!! I'm having a cup of the tea now. Coffee also a favorite thing and I have always loved artisan soaps. Scented candles make me smile. I definitely am not regretting doing this and look forward to the next one. And the added note as to what your act of kindness was from my purchase was priceless. Needless to say I am thrilled. Thank you again.”
