Let Your Crown Be Crooked
Crooked Crown is a gift boutique, bringing specialty curated items to Kamloops (and the dot com). We love supporting other Canadian brands, and also love female led, founded, and owned, businesses. Our core values include connection, community, and inclusivity, and is a lens we apply when we consider all aspects of our business.
While Crooked Crown didn't always have a name, the dream of the store has been alive for almost 30 years. The pieces of my dream finally started to fall into place in January of 2020, and we haven't looked back since.
The name? I have been collecting Sid Dickens tiles since 2009, and a lot of our tiles have crowns on them. While we were sitting at the kitchen table trying to come up with a name, I kept looking at all our tiles. The quote, "Fix another woman's crown, without telling the world that it's crooked", kept popping into my head. I thought Crooked Crown would be the perfect name for our brand.
At Crooked Crown we absolutely love giving back to our community. We support many different charities and fundraisers throughout the year with both financial and in-kind donations. We proudly have partnered with Brennan’s Ugly Sweater Run, which raises funds for the BGC Kamloops (formerly The Boys and Girls Club) Powerstart program. We also fund an annual bursary to a graduate of their First Steps program. To learn more about BGC Kamloops, and the First Steps Program click here.
While I didn’t grow up in Kamloops, I’ve been calling it home since 2006, and I absolutely LOVE it here. If you ever need a recommendation of where to eat, drink, or sweat in Kamloops, feel free to slide in our DMs. Not only am I obsessed with Kamloops, but everyone who works here is too.
