Our Story

For as long as I can remember I have imagined myself owning a small store that sells beautiful things. These beautiful things would make people’s hearts smile. Whether they were purchasing for themselves or a loved one, I dreamed that visiting my store would be an experience filled with joy, love and laughter; and that my customers would feel like they were part of my village. 

I’m Melissa Hatty, and I have founded a small store; That Little Village. In my store you will find beautiful treasures from a wide variety of labels, some of the brands That Little Village will be stocking are local brands, made by talented makers here in our community. This is very important to me and the vision I have for That Little Village.

My online store was the launching place for That Little Village, with a bricks and mortar store in Riddells Creek soon following. The store is a place where locals and visitors, as well as online customers can receive friendly village customer service, while browsing and selecting wonderful gifts. That Little Village has become a reality with the amazing support of my family. My Husband and 3 children are all excited to be part of That Little Village. I feel strongly about being a positive role model to my children by showing them that hard work and a solid vision can make dreams into a reality.

I look forward to ensuring that your visit to That Little Village is amazing and joyful, and hope to assist you with your gift purchases for years to come.

With love
