Egbert & The Yoga Bunnies...

Egbert & the Yoga Bunnies

You're right - that does sound like an awesome band name!

But, in fact, it's merely a suggestion of the wide variety of Easter items currently in stock at the Mercantile.

That's right. Easter! You'd forgotten somehow, hadn't you? It's actually Good Friday THIS COMING FRIDAY. It's easy to lose track with these movable feasts!

There's no way for us to forget in the shop since we're surrounded by some of the finest Easter treats available: chocolates from Roger's and Saxon and Denman Island and, of course, the extraordinary creations of Toronto's own Laura Slack - including the meticulously rendered and handpainted (and entirely edible) chick named Egbert, pictured here in glorious colour (and available in both milk and dark varieties); but also jelly beans and malt eggs and Hershey eggs and marshmallow chicks and bunny treat bags and egg table charms and our famous ceramic Yoga Bunnies, also pictured here - who might arrive for Easter but stay in your home to offer leporine serenity year round.

Once people do twig to Easter, they usually make quick work of our stock so don't leave it too late.
We are CLOSED on Easter Sunday AND Easter Monday, regular hours on Friday and Saturday. Hop on in!

Not too soon for Advent Calendars!

Roger's Advent

There's always a debate this time of year: when is it too early to put out Christmas stuff? Nobody wants to push things and nobody wants to be completely sick of carols before it's appropriate (we confess our tolerance is low!) but Advent Calendars are one area where we take our cue from customers. We've already had people come in and ask if we're getting our traditional chocolate advent calendars from Roger's Chocolates of Victoria BC. Well of course we are!

This year's new design, Winter Fun, by John Burrow is guaranteed to sell out so don't wait. And apart from it being top quality chocolate - and apart from it being fun to open a different window every day in advance of Christmas, Rogers' Chocolates is proudly committed to Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa, so making your Christmas sweet isn't making someone else's bitter.

We do offer some other advent kits as well - where you can fill the windows with your own treats - but we know some people have been waiting for this announcement as a kind of unofficial start to the season, so consider yourself notified!
