Show Your Canadian Spirit

July not only is the month we celebrate Canada Day but this year the 20th Commonwealth Games are being held in Glasgow, Scotland from Wednesday July 23rd to Sunday August 3rd. In keeping with the theme we have some different Canadian pieces available.

In Cherished Teddies there have been different Canadian Exclusives over the years, but two stand out for us at this time. Joel – Wear Your Country’s Colours With Pride – and Jana - Loyalty and Friendship Go Hand In Hand – each retail at $21.95. For a limited time buy both pieces at the special price of $24.95, a $19 savings.

The bright red uniform coat of the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), or Mounties as they are affectionately called, are a familiar Canadian symbol. So as an added super special two more of the Canadian Exclusive bears, Constable MacKenzie - I’d Stand Watch For You Morning, Noon And Night - and Inspector Yukon - I Will Always Keep You Safe and Protected – normally $31.95 a piece are available at $34.95 for the duo, a savings of $29.

Also released from Bradford Exchange is ‘Lady Canada’, first in the Crystal Elegance of Canada series. Her red dress is inset with over 125 genuine Swarvoski crystals and features silver bas-relief maple leaf accents. Her hat is completed with a real marabou feather. Priced at $99.95 she is indeed an elegant lady.

Jim Shore has designed a new figurine. ‘Canada’s Game’ showcases a Canadian hockey player ready for action. It retails at $47.95 and is 8″ high.

In stained glass sun catchers we have a maple leaf with Canada printed on it. At $11.95 it is an excellent value and makes an attractive display.

Last Day For Chocolate Covered Strawberries In 2014

All good things must come to an end. The 2014 strawberry season at our local farm has wrapped up. So the last of our hand dipped chocolate covered strawberries are in the store today, July 11th. Considering how short the season was initially expected to be we did really well having it last for three full weeks.

Hope you enjoyed the berries as much as we did. Look for them again next year starting sometime around mid-June.

Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to everyone, and an early Happy Independence Day to our American friends. To celebrate our nation’s birth we are closed for the day.

With the heat we are currently experiencing it’s hard to remember how chilled we were through the winter. Now is definitely the time to turn our attention to iced teas and coffees. New in store we have blueberry muffin and café frangelica (dark chocolate, vanilla and hazelnut) for whole bean coffees, plus arctic raspberry in flavoured black teas. Each make a lovely cold drink option along with many other choices in our wide selection.
