Meet the Owners…


Chris and Don met in the spring of 1997 and started a kinky and wildly romantic love affair that lasts to this day.

Chris is an avid researcher and loves learning. She will talk your ear off about pleasure chemicals, win/win, love languages, and nutrition for sexual health.

Don, a professional musician for 25 years, is a voracious reader and loves to learn new things. He brings the energy, enthusiasm, and love of learning he had for his musical career to the customers of Little Shop of Pleasures.

About Our Business

Chris and Don love life and love helping Calgarians fulfil their sexy dreams. As Don is always saying: “I never have to go to work.. I get to go to work”. We attribute our success to our philosophy of winning not being getting money in the till, but when customers leave the store happy. Happy customers are repeat customers, so we take the business of pleasure very seriously.

We have come a long way in the last 15 years. Chris moved to Calgary from Ontario. After attending school and running 2 small businesses, she met Don, and within 2 years both were owners of Adam and Eve’s Exotic Boutique. Chris’s organizational skills and business savvy grew the business to 3 locations and 16 employees. Foresight and planning kept the business afloat and brought us through the recession and to the name change: Little Shop of Pleasures. We are stronger than ever!
