We are breaking with tradition this year and heading south for Easter weekend. While we won't be making our homemade bread or hand decorated eggs, we will be enjoying the holiday with Ukrainian friends, so there will likely be plenty of paska and other familiar fare. The shop will be open and in the capable hands of Karen this weekend. Hours are Friday from 12-4, Saturday from 10-5 and closed Sunday and Monday. Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter and happy and safe trails to those who are travelling.

Thank you to the great team at 'Canadian House and Home' for the very nice feature on the shop in the April issue. It's always a pleasure to work with the creative people behind Canada's top design magazine. (photos: Janet Kimber)
