Countdown to Christmas

December 1st to 24th

This year we created a giant advent calendar just for our customers. We are filling each of the pockets with products from our shop. Every day one lucky customer will receive the contents from one of those pockets. Of course, you’ll have to visit our Victoria Park shop and make a purchase to get a chance at receiving a gift. To make things extra special we have included gifts from our shop AND 14 other local shops including fantastic items like a bicycle basket from BikeBike, a 2 for 1 coupon from Nerd Rollers Skates, a $20 gift certificate from SalvEdge Boutique, gift certificates and a collector holiday growler from Cold Garden Beverage Company, an ornament from The Galleria, art from from Moonstone Creation, $20 gift certificate from Prairie Girl Flowers, a gorgeous mug and coffee beans from Kaffeklatsch, free coffee drink coupons from Calgary Heritage Roasting Co., specialty tea from Loughheed House, breakfast for two form Bite Grocer & Eatery, a leather wallet from Horace & Jasper, desk accessories from Mission Green Building and a $20 gift certificate from the CORE. Our shop is brimming with one-of-a-kind items made right here in Calgary. But we can’t stock everything which is why we’ll be happy to direct you to another local shop. We encourage you to do all your shopping local this holiday season.

You’ll also notice that there is a 25th pocket on our calendar. This pocket is for charity. We’re collecting donations for Two Wheel View this holiday season. Two Wheel View is a registered charity organization that creates opportunities for young people to learn and practice lessons in leadership, health and wellness, self esteem, achievement, and environmental stewardship through their participation in bicycle education programs and bike trips.
