Lake Preston woman expands business


Codi Smith of Lake Preston recently expanded her home-based business, Codi’s Creations, to include women’s and baby clothes and other gift items. The business is now called Codi’s Creations & Boutique.

“As the mother of two with one on the way, I’ve been looking for a way to expand my business but still be able to have more time at home with my children,” said Smith. “So, over this summer, I worked at expanding to boutique items to have ready for this fall, including clothing, baby and additional home and gift items.”

Most of Codi’s Creations' items will be posted for sale on her Facebook page, but her merchandise can also be seen at local craft and gift shows including the Lake Preston Craft and Gift Fair coming up on Saturday, Dec. 12.

“I am looking to meet the needs of locals in the area and let them know they don’t have to travel to a larger city to find the perfect gift, home décor item or article of clothing,” Smith said. “Shopping local and supporting small businesses in the area is important for our small towns and rural areas.”

Anyone can message Codi’s Creations & Boutique on Facebook or email her at
