We are two sisters who married two brothers. Adam and Ariel recently move back from Manitoba so we decided it only made sense to combine our formerly known businesses Happy Little Paint Shop and Trunk & Treadle. It all started out at Alyssa and Miles country farm and that is where the little country store was born:) We are excited to be expanding and moving our Country Store into a more convenient location for our customers! We open on November 1, 2018 and will be posting many events and workshops on our Facebook page or you can sign up to be notified on all upcoming events HERE.
Alyssa and Miles have owned Trunk & Treadle for 4 years and have been busy raising their 5 kids, homeschooling, and making beautiful handcrafted wool duvets, wool pillows and baby blankets! They have mastered the beautiful technique of hand sewing each blanket to perfection! Alyssa and Miles enjoy raising their sheep on their farm, Alysheep. They have experience in all aspects from shearing the sheep to handcrafting warm and cozy items with their sheep's wool.
Ariel has owned Happy Little Paint Shop for four years and has been refinishing furniture for the past five years. She immediately fell in love with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint and has a passion for teaching others how to use the paint through workshops. She is a certified MMSMP retailer and teaches Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint Workshops in Olds, AB. Ariel and Adam have 3 kids and love raising Highland cattle on their farm, Farm Sweet Farm. Adam and Ariel also have combined their love of building and painting and on the side refinish furniture as a husband and wife team who love to do custom work, He Builds She Paints.
