Take it outside
With summer fast approaching, I love spending more time outside in the sun, whether it be a walk with my dog or taking in one of the many outdoor performances at the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival.
The warm weather also means that grilling season is upon us. Check out our Kitchen Toys section for some neat tools to help you get the most out of your grill!
In June, as we celebrate Father’s Day, I’m reminded of the many fond memories I have of my own dad. Though he’s far away in Germany, I always look forward to our next visit, and enjoy talking to him on the phone, and hearing some of his many stories. We can help find the perfect gift for the dad who loves to cook, grill, or just eat!
I am pleased to share that in May we raised a total of $180 for the Orangeville SPCA and the Alzheimer's Society through donations at the Orangeville Farmers’ Market and our knife sharpening clinic. Thank you for your support of these worthwhile causes.
Finally, don’t forget to join us on Facebook for the latest product info, recipes and more! Best wishes,
