Some ideas whether you’re hosting or visiting friends or family over Thanksgiving weekend 🍁
•Candles add to the ambience whether in pillar or taper form
•Words of thanks go a long way to show your appreciation for a home cooked meal
•Cute plates for a cute pumpkin pie
•Clean up the mess without the waste using Swedish dish cloths!
•Tea is always a nice cozy apres dinner beverage
•Coasters are a must for a ring free table!
•Tea towels and napkins are a nice gift or add a nice touch for your fall kitchen decor
•Ceramic bud vase or planter is a lovely touch to any hosts home!

We’ve got these and more ideas in the shops!

Things are getting cozy in the stores! Though the sun is still keeping us warm, we’re preparing for the cooler Fall days. Teas, new mugs and your favourite knitwear from PEI are all waiting patiently for the real Fall feelings to set in 🍁 Happy first day of October!

Saturday Sept 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, as well as the families and communities who continue to grieve their loved ones.

We acknowledge the painful history that Indigenous communities have endured and the intergenerational impacts it continues to have.

Today we encourage non-Indigenous folks to take action and support Indigenous communities in a way that feels right for you.

The shops will be open Saturday from 11am - 4pm for Community Hours. We're closing early to allow staff members to make space for education and attend any Truth and Reconciliation events of interest.

We will be donating 20% of net sales made on Saturday to the IRSSS.

We hope that by keeping the conversation going and sharing educational resources, we can continue supporting each other on our collective journey toward reconciliation. See our link in bio for more resources and events taking place around the city tomorrow🧡

We are celebrating 12 years this month!! It doesn’t feel like that much time has passed until I look at photos from my first year (swipe to see) and realize all the wrinkles, grey hairs… and most importantly wisdom, that have come since that first year 😉

I’m incredibly lucky to do what I do. Though there are so many ups and downs that come with owning a small business there is also so much reward, and that is what makes the tough moments and the grey hairs worth it.

It feels so special to see the same faces in the stores that have been visiting since our first year, and it feels so special to meet new faces every year in hopes they too will become familiar faces. Because it is all about you, our customers, our community, the support that has given us 12 years in Roncy and 5 in Leslieville.

Thank you for continuing to stick by us, to trust us with your special occasions, hopefully knowing that even a visit without a purchase, to say hi and let us pet your dog, is also just as special and appreciated💛

Keep your eyes peeled here or on your inbox in the coming days, there may just be another way we’re saying thank you! (Link in bio to subscribe to our newsletter so you’re the first to know) 🫶🏻

We’re here, we’re open! Just getting many ducks in a row for all that is unfolding this month. September is a busy one. I know this, I also forget this every year until I’m knee deep in all the things!

September is such an adjustment from the sleepy Summer at the shops.

Who else is feeling big things this month?

Happy Sunday! If I make plans on Sundays I always make sure part of my day is still dedicated to rest. It’s not always easy for me, and often comes with guilt. 𝘐𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳 𝘥𝘪𝘢𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘶𝘦: “I can rest after I do laundry or buy groceries or clean”. I bet that sounds familiar to others? It always feels it needs to be a trade off. It’s something I’m forever working on. So for those also working on that, consider this permission to rest without guilt today ☀️

Thanks to everyone that came out for the second annual !!

At Scout we are big believers in a handwritten note and love how many others feel the same. Cards are a wee obsession of mine and hand picking each one out to fill our card racks is one of my favourite parts of the job. It makes me so happy when folks come in looking for that perfect card, and brings me even more joy when they find it.

It’s been a bit of an odd year for retail (again) and these days created to remind y’all to support your local indie businesses out there are extra important. So thank you for supporting ours💛

If you made it in hopefully you were able to stock up on some cards and maybe walked away with some nice little paper freebies 💌

We are closed for Canada Day because gosh darn those weekend staff work hard, and they deserve a Saturday off💛

Canada Day can hold some confusing emotions for some. If you’re celebrating a better opportunity Canada provided, the history of your family and how they arrived here as immigrants or refugees, or holding any other feelings of pride on July 1st, I think it’s incredibly important to also encourage a greater understanding of how this land came to be Canada.

I have a hard time reconciling those two, I don’t see how I can celebrate when Indigenous people, who were here first, are still suffering from years and years of trauma, abuse and unfair treatment. We claimed their land as our own, and then did everything possible to “take the Indian out of the child” (a quote from our first Prime Minister in reference to the purpose behind the residential ‘school’ system). This is our history, and it’s important to acknowledge.

Wear orange tomorrow, consider the true history of the land you’re on and keep challenging and asking questions. If you feel called to do so, make a donation to the IRSSS or any other incredible organization doing the work to give back to Indigenous communities. We’ve got organizations and resources linked in our bio.
