About The Woodland Emporium


I’m Charla Smith, a teacher, a mother of two grown daughters, a grandmother, and the entrepreneur of The Woodland Emporium .  Our delightful store is located on the plains of Oklahoma.

The Woodland Emporium carries items for the child at heart in everyone and is filled with nature-themed,  such as wood, cotton and wool items that are Earth-friendly.  We prefer to support non-toxic, organic, recycled and upcycled products when we can. We also carry products to infuse the imagination and love of learning. We are often a bit whimsical!

Providing children and adults with opportunities to instill the love of reading, creating, playing and learning is our mission for The Woodland Emporium.  We curate top-notch heirloom quality lovelies for the whole family.  We hope you enjoy our enchanted store and look forward to a life-long relationship.

About Charla

With my teaching experience, I fell in love with books.  But, not just any books.  I have a high standard for books, and with that I am proud to offer you some rich literature that has been time-tested over my 14 years of teaching with children and with my own. 

I love hands-on and believe that experience is the best teacher.  In my teaching career, we rarely used a textbook to learn about Science. So, I hope you enjoy some of our collections offered here.

I also love the concept behind the Sudbury schools where children are free to learn whatever they choose.  I think our purpose in life is to live in joy and create and that being free is the basis for it… no matter the age. 

So, pay close attention to your and your loved ones interest, they will lead the way... we hope you find lots to choose from The Woodland Emporium!
