Apparently a lot! This time on Dean’s last visit he found an envelope stamped and dated from Smallman & Ingram in London Ontario where his grandmother Mabel used to work. Mabel was born in 1891 and started working at Smallman when she was only 8 or 9 years old. She eventually moved on to Kingmill’s and then finally to Simpsons/Sears because they paid her five cents more a week! There she stayed and was the oldest living employee making it all the way to 103. I guess it’s true what they say. Hard work pays off – at least five cents more a week anyways. 😁. What Dean Found Last Time
Happy Family Day!

THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING TO OUR UPDATES and for… WELL… JUST BEING YOUR SUPPORTIVE SELVES!!
It’s a new year and we want you to travel the world on a dime and feel the air from every spot.
Here is a reminder of how free you can be! Set yourself up to ride through the year, smash goals and take every opportunity you come across.
Just like these ‘superbikes’, discover your super abilities and use them! We all have them! Plan to put them to use, even if it’s something as simple as adding colour and playfulness to your home or singing while driving down the road with your head out the window, hair blowing in the breeze. All of this can bring you joy- and finding joy naturally brings out your super-abilities with little effort.
New New New!
A big welcome to Whit’s Findings on their new booth setup. Already with some beautiful furniture pieces out the door, I can’t wait to see what they bring in next! Stunning!
Next time you’re in, take home some of the excitement we give!
The other day, Dean got the shock of his life while shopping in the store like he usually does. He’s a regular here and we were all beside ourselves when he showed us what he found.
A picture of himself as a boy! You know you’re an antique when…. hahaha. Sorry, Dean.
As a boy, he always stood at the bow of what was to become a family boat in Port Dover- And there he is! Is that a fantastic find or what? What an eye he has to have found it! We love it! Thank you so much for sharing your joy with us!
