Home / About / Team

I have had the amazing opportunity of being a manager at Little Shop of Pleasures. My mother (Chris Nelson) and her partner (Don Wilhelm) have owned this store since 2001, so I have always grown up in a very open-minded environment. I am grateful to never have had others people’s prejudgments instilled in me. I believe if it is safe, sane and consensual, then we can help.
I was already a long-time customer of the store for over 7 years when I started with Little Shop. I found that the staff were well educated about the products, it always had the best selection of toys, and I always found something new and exciting when I visited. The vast selection of Plus Size lingerie made it easy to always find something unique and sexy to wear. The customer appreciation program and great service kept me coming back.
Asst. Manager
Hi I am Cathy. I am the Assistant Manager for Little Shop of Pleasures. I started working here about 7 years ago. I like to bring a light humor to our store environment in order to make customers feel comfortable to ask for what they are searching for. I work with wonderful people and help great customers, for a company that really cares. Everyday is a new adventure.
I have worked for LSOP since 2011 and love my job. I find it gratifying to help people and like that every day is different. Being able to help people find joy or solve an issue for them is really satisfying. I find the team wonderful to work with as well, and like that they are all supportive of each other’s endeavours and challenges. I am also an artist, primarily in the medium of photography, and am currently working on a project about adult retail store workers.
A healthy sex life, whatever that may mean to the individual, is a fundamental building block of a happy and fulfilling life. The pursuit of this, as with all pursuits of self discovery, is one that should continue throughout a person’s life.Now, I like to imagine the never ending journey of sexual exploration as the Yellow Brick Road, and us as Glinda, showing up every now and then with some wisdom, guidance, and the occasional pair of magical rhinestone shoes.
I am a dedicated person with a family of five. I enjoy reading, and the knowledge and perspective that my reading gives me has broadened my mind and expanded my knowledge in many ways. I have been successful at raising a family, and I attribute this success to my ability to be flexible and handle many different types of situations. This flexibility benefits me when helping other people, which I live for, which is why I was elated to begin working at Little Shop Of Pleasures.
Hey there, this is Rachael your Pleasure Specialist at Bowness. I am so very happy to work here. The wonderful couple that own these stores are absolutely amazing. Working here feels like home. It’s a great place to hang out and talk to so many different people about how to please themselves and their partners.
I have been a customer service representative for over 5 years, selling everything from men’s 3 piece suits to loose leaf tea. If you enter one of our stores, my primary objective is to provide helpful, product-knowledge based information in a comprehensive manner. Due to the intimate nature of our products and the sensitivities surrounding the complex realm of human sexuality, it is a firm goal of mine to tailor your experience with careful attention to match your comfort level and your budget. Not buying today? That is fine by me! I would rather you leave happy than with something you didn’t want.
