It’s officially summer; the sun is shining, the pools are open and festival season has begun in Windsor Essex! Around here, we wait what seems like an eternity for the warmer months to arrive and once they’re here, we go full throttle into summer mode! Going through long, cold winters always makes us Canadians appreciate the heat more.
Whether you’re gearing up for a backyard BBQ with your family, an afternoon picnic in the park, a brisk walk along the waterfront or an afternoon of adventure around the city, make sure you’ve got these summer essentials by your side:
It’s no secret that scrunchies are cool again but unfortunately most of us tossed our stash decades ago (serious regrets). Whether it’s pop culture trends or just the fact that they’re super functional and fun, scrunchies have made a comeback and we’ve got you covered for your next fix with our ever changing stock of Loop scrunchies. Made in New Brunswick, we’ve got fun, bright patterns in a variety of sizes as well as silk options and even a swim collection that’s chlorine/pool/beach friendly.
We’ve got places to go and people to see.....and we need our stuff to come along with us! There’s nothing quite like a good totebag for beach, party, farmers market and vacation essentials but who says it has to be boring? Our Canadian made totes come all the way from Lighters Candle Co in Prince Edward Island and they do not disappoint. Not only do they hold a lot, they also say a lot, and who doesn’t love that??
Summer is the season of snacking and we wouldn’t have it any other way! It seems like we’re always on the go during the warmer months so our snacks have to be portable too. Luckily for you, and the planet, we have an ever changing collection of beeswax wraps that are made locally by Beekeeper Wraps in Windsor. Fold them into snack bags to carry your favourite goodies or use them to cover that bowl full of pasta salad for the backyard potluck. They’re versatile, eco friendly and extra cute PLUS they make an awesome conversation starter!
We’re not talking just any old t-shirt, we’re talking Windsor shirts that are actually cool so you can rep your city no matter where your summer adventures take you! Whether it’s the classic neighbourhood tee from RARE Apparel or the fun Spirit train tee from Spotvin, we’ve got your back covered (literally).
There’s nothing quite like a cold drink on a hot day but ice cubes aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be. They water down your drink and ain’t nobody got time fo dat! Grab a bag of locally made whiskey rocks from Ian Coffin and keep your summer drinks as cold as they should be without sacrificing taste.
