Meet Jan Hermiston & Elaine Winslow
Jan Hermiston and Elaine Winslow used to be traveling saleswomen. They sold high-end bedding and linens, and would go from small town to small town where people didn’t have access to these kinds of products. They would set up in hotels and other locations for a few days, and then pack everything up and move on to the next town.
Jan and Elaine enjoyed their years on the road and were able to see a lot of BC, but after several years the constant travel was wearing on them. “We got old!” jokes Jan, and so they decided to settle down in Williams Lake and open up their own store. They still carry their signature collection of fine linens and bedding, but they also carry an inventory of gorgeous gift and household items, as well as some of the most unique Christmas ornaments from around the world. Another important line they carry are the collectible Middleton dolls which are hand sculpted by Reva Schick (who also works in the store) and are sold worldwide.
They’ve operated their store since 2006, and Elaine and Jan have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know their customers over the years. In addition to their regulars from Williams Lake and area, they get many out-of-town and out-of-country guests, several of whom make it a point to stop in every time they’re in Williams Lake. They even offer travelers a 10 percent discount. Jan and Elaine love to chat with their guests and hear their stories, and Elaine admits that she likes her job so much, “I would work seven days per week, all year round!”
