My favourite part of the shop is the Coast to Coast section. I love the wooden canoe paddles for your walls, fun beach towels and lawn games. Also, how cute is that pillow?

If you’re a reader like me, you’ll love their curated list of Canada’s top 10 reads. Anne of Green Gables is on the list, one of my favourite books of all time! History buffs and Canadiana fans will enjoy The World Needs More Canada – an amalgamation of anecdotes, insights and photography from over 100 storytellers and thought-leaders across the country.
