About

Krystal Nicholson, The Shop GuideKrystal Nicholson is the founder of The Shop Guide. Armed with a background in Communications (B.A., University of Calgary), Marketing, and Event Management, Krystal has spent the last eight years in the corporate world. Her time in Marketing & Communications was enhanced with planning events and corporate gift buying where she utilized her sophisticated design aesthetic.

Krystal soon realized that people were always curious as to where she purchased something, requested her opinion on an item, asked for design tips, and her personal favorite – helping find the perfect gift. That’s when she discovered she is a first-rate buyer with a passion for everything retail. Enter – personal shopper gig.

She thrives supporting the working professional, the busy family, the small-med-large organization, and the event planner to make the right purchase when time is limited. Krystal is a negotiator at heart. She loves bargaining and finding a great deal. Her shopping philosophy is – first, use what you have and, second, buy only the things you can’t live without. Her natural love for helping people, offering advice, eye for style, and passion for shopping led her to become a personal shopper in Calgary (YYC). Growing up in Toronto, ON, and settling down in Calgary, AB, she is now soaking in this beautiful big sky country life with her little family that she is so very grateful for.
