The May Long Weekend Is Here!

2015 seems to be racing by. Already we’ve arrived at the Victoria Day weekend. Enjoy the outdoors whenever possible (between the raindrops).

It’s time to barbecue. Choose from our selection of salsas, marinades, sauces, dips and seasonings. Pick up a cast iron fajita pan to use on the grill. Refresh yourself with iced tea or iced coffee. We have a selection of acrylic glasses, pitchers and trays for serving on the patio or at a picnic. For dessert treat yourself with our chocolates, candyfudge or nuts.

Do you know someone who likes to garden? Come see the outdoor artwork by Rockwood artist Gordon Hare. We also carry a wide range of his indoor pieces. We have garden themed figurines in many other lines as well, including Cherished Teddies, Precious Moments and Willow Tree.

Please note we will be closed on Monday May 18th to enjoy Victoria Day with our family and friends. Have a fun, safe long weekend.

Puzzling over a gift for mom? Look no further than our chocolate letters. M-O-M is the traditional greeting for many of us, but the are many variations on the theme: Ma, Mum, Mama and the very formal Mother to touch on a few. There are also options for grandmothers too, both short and long. Nan, Gamma, Nana… the list goes on and on. We make all 26 letters of the alphabet in milk chocolate, so there is lots of room for creativity.

Have a very happy Mother’s Day this weekend.
