Retailer Spotlight: Tiny TreeHugger!

Pamala, owner of Tiny TreeHugger, sat down to answer a few questions for us. Tiny TreeHugger is home to the BEAUTIFUL Prairie Sky exclusive AppleCheeks line - that gorgeous rich shade pairs perfectly with all of your warm fall fashions! Find yours here: Prairie Sky Exclusive

Prairie Sky is second from the top - by Megan D. 

1. When did your store open?

June of 2007 we launched our website! We had been building and working on it since Jan of that year [I had my 3rd child that March!].



2. Where are you located?


Winnipeg, MB.

TTH was home based for 4+ years before moving to a shared space for 2 years and now our very own brick & mortar for almost two years!


3. Do you have a brick & mortar (or local pickup available)?


You bet! In St Vital area in Winnipeg.

4. What makes your store unique in your area?


We specialize in cloth diapers, baby carriers & natural options. The cloth diapers we carry are made in North America. It is VERY important to me to support our local economy. #shopsmall & #shopTTH are my favourite hashtags of late! 


5. What’s your favourite thing about being an AppleCheeks retailer?


Creating our very own Prairie Sky! Blue has ALWAYS been a favourite colour & so choosing a shade that means so much to me has been a favourite! Finally meeting Amy & Ilana in person almost three years ago was a great highlight as well. It felt as though we've been connected for a long time [thank you internets!] and meeting them was so lovely! 


6. Did you use cloth diapers on your children?


You bet! With my oldest [born in 2002] I knew nothing of cloth. By the time I was expecting my 2nd in 2007, I had researched my options, noticed very little local options, ordered a sampler kit of various types from a west coast Canadian online shop & the rest, they say, is HISTORY. I've cloth diapered my three youngest children and truthfully, have been diapering that whole time.

7. What is your favourite AppleCheeks colour other than your store’s exclusive?


I am in LOVE with Kiss n Teal. Before that Limited Edition came along it my next fave was Lake Echo and SL2. Sensing a theme here? 


8.  Is there anything else you’d like fans to know?


After 10 years strong I'd love to hang up my cloth diapering hat but alas we are using cloth at night for a bed wetter. We know it won't last forever and my dream [always a dreamer!] is to cloth diaper a future foster child. So many unloved children need good homes...

I think this just adds to the cloth experience as a store owner and offering support to those who continue with needing cloth past the potty learning stage! 

Be sure to visit Pamala's store in person or online at for beautiful Prairie Sky Exclusive items, fun AppleCheeks swag and carefully selected items that allow you to reduce waste of single-use household items! Get social with TTH: Facebook, FB Chat Group and Instagram!

I love Prairie Sky!! It's SUCH a gorgeous jewel tone blue. The purple on the tag is the perfect accent. PS has my fave AC tag. It's so pretty. I keep hoping TTH gets another exclusive because I want to see more of that tag! 😍

I'm not sure why but my favorite has always been Billie Jean. :-)

Unfortunately we sold out of those a long time ago.
