Canadian Spirit During The 17th Pan Am Games

The 17th Pan Am Games have begun in Toronto, running until July 26th, followed by the Parapan Am Games in August from the 7th to the 15th. A simple way to cheer on all our Canadian athletes is by wearing a flag of Canada pin. They are also great when travelling overseas, or as a souvenir to take home.

We are pleased to offer Canada flag souvenir pins with Guelph printed in gold plate at the base. Hand crafted in Canada each pin retails at $4.95 and makes a tasteful show of Canadian pride.

We have a number of other Canadian products in stock, such as Gordon Hare wall art, Hoselton polished aluminum sculptures, mountie figurines, plus plates and calendars by Canadian artists. Need a souvenir? Come see us, we’d be glad to help.
