We’re Kate and Julia the co-founders of LOCALITY! Just a couple of girls sharing our love and passion for all the fantastic things the Okanagan Valley has to offer! We launched our local Okanagan based subscription box service in February 2018 and have had a great response from Okanagan lovers across Canada.
Here is a little background on us: We are both born and raised Okanagan girls. Julia was born and raised in Vernon and I (Kate) was born and raised in Kelowna. Both of us lived away from the Okanagan for many years, we connected in Vancouver thanks to our husbands who knew one another through their work. We ended up living across the street from each other in Port Moody and then both made our way back home to the Okanagan within months of one another!
One late summer day in August 2017 we were hanging out on Kalamalka Lake talking about ideas, our love for the Okanagan, life with young kids and what our next steps were in terms of our careers when we decided to join forces and start LOCALITY!!
Our goal with LOCALITY was ultimately to play a part in the ‘SHOP LOCAL’ movement by providing our members with easy access to beautiful, artisanally made Okanagan based products and brands. Our dream is to capture a feeling of pride, love and personal connection to an area that has so much to offer in terms of lifestyle.
Whether you live in Toronto, Vancouver, the Okanagan Valley or anywhere in between; you now have access to the flavours of the Okanagan all year round with our seasonally curated subscription box. Our boxes are $84.99 per quarter and there are products worth anywhere from $120-150 inside the box. You can expect to find products such as bath and body, health and wellness, non-perishable food items and accessories. Our boxes are curated by us and delivered to our members every season! We are also teaming up with wineries and other local business to offer free tastings discounts and prize packs for our members.
We recently launched and sold out of our Summer Launch Box. We sent out boxes all over the Okanagan Valley and across Canada as far as Ottawa and Toronto. We had a great response from members and some super exciting posts from influencers like Jillian Harris! This was obviously great exposure for us and for the artisans and partners featured in the box. We have opened up more spots for our Fall Box so sign up quick so you don’t miss out on this awesome local surprise!!
We are super excited about our Fall Box and have some really cool exclusive products that you will only be able to get if you order now! Sales for the Fall Box close at the end of July or as soon as we sell out. Follow us on Instagram to get all the updates @iamlocality and check out our website www.iamlocality.com to see all the products featured in our Summer Launch Box and to order the Fall Box!
