…and it’s also where we are finding ourselves spending a lot of time these days. As we lay low at home, we are sending you and your families thoughts of love, health and peace. Right now as the world and our country battles COVID-19, we’re facing a lot of change and uncertainty. Everything has been touched by the pandemic, our lives and relationships, jobs and children. Local storefronts and restaurants are doing what they can to support our community.

We look forward to getting back to business and having our doors wide open to you once again. Orders are still being processed and if you would like to support us and make a purchase please call 705-748-9951 or email

We have decided to start a blog where we can connect with you and share some things that are making us smile. Take things one day at a time and remember the little things really do count. Help out an elderly neighbour, surprise a frontline worker with a meal, send flowers to brighten someones day. Take the time to write a letter or start a journal.

If you haven’t already seen Fleming College’s #TogetherAtHome  video please go check it out. Local musicians have put together something special for our community. This cover of The Foo Fighters “Times Like These” made my day.

If you are not the creative type and Netflix and chill is more your vibe, you have a ton of options at your fingertips. The other night my husband and I watched the documentary miniseries The Last Dance on the Chicago Bulls and I’m excited for more episodes next week. Season three of Ozark came out recently and it was so good! Last night we had family movie night and watched The Willoughbys, we all had a good laugh.
