Our New Adventure

                                                                                                 Opening Day, 2012

Building and launching a store is not unlike having a child. You start with the idea, which may seem crazy, but totally doable, so you start doing some research, and soon it’s the most natural choice in the world. Maybe it comes together quickly, without trying. Maybe it takes a little longer than expected. Sometimes you have to adopt, but eventually you have this new entity in your life, and are starting down the exciting adventure. The challenges are certainly different, but it’s worth the effort and struggles to see them succeed.

These were the thoughts that went through my head when I started dreaming about owning a baby boutique. My husband and I were tired of travelling to many different shops through the Fraser Valley to find the baby products we were looking for; products that were naturally and responsibly made, reasonably priced, and preferably from Canadian companies. After a while, it just made sense to open a store that would gather all these great products together, and Precious Kargo was born.

Throughout the years we’ve added more products while remaining true to our ideals of natural, safe, supportive, responsible, and reasonably priced. We’ve been excited to highlight so many local companies, not only because we could support our local community, but because their products worked so well for our children.

Ironically, we started out with the idea of an online store, but the stars wouldn’t align in our favour, and an opportunity to take over an existing boutique in our hometown fell into our laps. So here we are, back at the beginning, launching our online store, our second child, to follow the metaphor.

Our staff members have decades of experience in cloth diapering, baby wearing, and overall parenting, and have used the majority of the products we carry at the store. All the Precious Kargo staff have great input into the products we carry, and are always on the lookout for new and useful products to bring to your attention. Please feel free to get in touch and ask us questions! From cloth diapers, to ring slings, to natural sunscreens, we are excited to share our personal experiences with our customers, as well as share in the experience of parenting.
