Join us June 1 & 2 as we celebrate three years of business with a gratitude party for our incredible community!

We want to use our third birthday as an opportunity to continue to give back and celebrate our community, and to do so we have partnered with the Dartmouth Family Centre. All weekend long we are collecting baby shower gifts for participants in their Prenatal Program, to be distributed during a baby shower held at the completion of the program.  

Community Love Letters are making a comeback for the weekend as well! Take a few minutes to write to write a little note for health care providers or other community members to show them they’re loved & appreciated! We will have all the supplies you need!

Saturday June 1, create a fun letterpress print with Tina of Arquoise Design (11am-2pm)!

Sunday, as part of SWITCH, The Pineapple Sweets Co is offering cotton candy samples and specials all afternoon (12-4pm)! The Downtown Dartmouth Business Association has lots of great events happening on & around Portland Street as part of SWITCH. 

In store specials, high fives & hugs all weekend long.

We would love to celebrate with you!

Kimberley & Jason
