I am so, so excited to welcome East Side to the roster of #30in30 shops as one my favourite local businesses.

East Side Shop started in Fredericton and over the past 10 years has expanded to Saint John and to Moncton.


I love the skateboarding culture in Saint John. I spent a long time this week hanging out with Dan Boyer, Assistant Manager of the Saint John location, learning all about skating in SJ. I loved hearing about the plans for the new indoor skate park, too!


There are so many great gift ideas at East Side.

They have a huge selection of shoes for men, women and children. Their clothing is definitely catered to guys – t-shirts, hoodies, winter jackets and jeans for both youths and adults. They have a healthy collection of clothing for girls as well.

Take a look at the photos and albums below for some gift ideas!

(And of course, check out the giveaway!)


Their selection of backpacks is great – loads of Herschel and Fox brand to choose from.

Their shoe collection is crazy. I especially love the vintage looking New Balance and Adidas! I’ve also never seen a collection of TOMS quite so large.




NIXON watches are so, so stylish. The collection at East Side is huge, well priced and for both men and women.

No board supply shop would be complete without a collection of decks.
*Hint, Hint see below!*



A few weeks ago Adam bought a Coal hat from East Side and it’s awesome – It’s corduroy and features a RAM and it RULES.

I seriously cannot get enough of these socks. Yes, that is absolutely Larry Bird.


Check out the Snowboarding gear – Snowboards, Boots and Accessories – plus jackets! (for adults and youths)



And to top it off – some custom Saint John East Side tees
