Easter2019

Don't tell the kids but a certain long-eared cotton-tail comes to the Mercantile a little bit earlier than to your house... and drops off a TON of colourful treats for every budget and every taste. We're giving you a heads up to let you know we've seen the bunny tracks and we've got the goods to prove the existence of the Easter Bunny!

Old standbys like Jellybeans, Easter Gummies, Malted Eggs, Chocolate Robin's Eggs, Foil Eggs and special seasonal offerings from friends like Laura Slack, Denman Island, Roger's, Saxon and gummy treats and carrot-cake marshmallows from Tout de Sweet.

PLUS, we've got dishes and egg cups and napkins and tea towels and table charms (including bunnies in a variety of sizes). You can even buy our delightful daisy-eggs right from the window display!
We're open Good Friday and Saturday as normal but closed Easter Sunday and Monday. We'll give you more reminders as we get closer but the goodies tend to go fast so we thought we'd let you know now to give you plenty of time.

Get FUNCHed UP!

FUNCH lunch bags

Spring is right around the corner (and March Break is just about over!), which means there's still a few months of school lunches to be made, carried to school, shoved in a locker and eventually consumed. While we do have lots of good things to go IN to lunch bags, people often come to us looking for a more environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional lunch bag. We finally have just the thing.

Meet FUNCH.

These beautiful and durable bags are made of insulated Tyvek printed with a gorgeous selection of designs and come in two sizes - each with a Velcro closure. So not only will these bags keep your lunch fresh and secure until lunchtime, because they're made from Tyvek, they're strong, recyclable, washable and tear and water resistant. Look for them on the rack right inside the door to your right.

Time for a Heart to Heart

Valentine's Goodies

You know that we love our customers. And we know that our customers know that the Mercantile is the perfect place to provision for LoveDay - that's why they've already put a serious dent in our selection of Valentine's Day cards!

But don't worry, there are still treats galore - whether it's cinnamon hearts to pass out at school, luxurious chocolates from Roger's and Laura Slack, a sweet/tart combo for your sweetheart from Tout de Sweet or heart-shaped spinach and cheese ravioli from Queen's Pasta for a romantic dinner at home. Or all of the above wrapped neatly in a CandyHearts Tea Towel!

That's just a fraction of our Valentine's selection but February 14th is a day that tends to creep up on people so we thought we'd let you know before the rush.

XOXOXOXO from all of us to all of you!
