Ten Years And Counting

February 10th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

We released our latest newsletter:

Hello again to all our regular readers and and welcome to you new ones..

We, Alison and I, have owned the About Canada brand since February 14th 2006. Which makes this weekend our tenth anniversary for the store. How time flies!. (The brand is made up of About Canada on Banff Avenue and the About Canada Online store)

Since 2006 we have developed the brand and continued to make both stores attractive and fun places to browse. We strive to make the shopping experience interesting and enjoyable and to make the shopping environment comfortable.

Our core philosophy is to provide neat Canadian products at an attractive price.

We love what we do, and get a great buzz from the enjoyment people get from shopping with us. We hope that this enjoyable experience follows through to be also found when shopping with us on the internet at About Canada Online.

This weekend is also Valentines Day and I have brought together some Valentine Gift ideas.

At the foot of the newsletter I also have some information on the popular line of clothing from Graham Howard Designs.

So first for the Valentine Gift ideas. Valentine Heart

I selected a range of items from a range of prices, all of which are on the theme of lovers and loving.

I mentioned that I had some information on the popular line of clothing from Graham Howard Designs.

Unfortunately Graham Howard passed away two years ago. Since then his wife has continued to produce his designs of distinct Canadian made clothing. However the small factory where the material was dyed and stone washed has closed (due to the owner retiring). Graham`s wife has tried for months to find a new supplier, in Canada, that can dye and stone wash, without success.

So, though it is not certain, it appears that what we have left will be the last of this version of the line. We always held deep stock, as it is such a popular item, but I would suggest that if you want to buy one, or get a replacement for when your current one reaches it`s end of life, now would be a good time to act.

By the way. If any reader knows of a Canadian company that can dye and stone wash, let me know and I will pass the details on to Graham`s widow.
