I remember sitting on my couch almost 5 years ago being exciting about my next blog post – a business I was going to feature or a Saint John-er I was going to interview. I missed that feeling! I’m hoping to be back from time to time sharing goodies when the mood strikes. Thanks for sticking around….

I’m back today to share a few more businesses that are truly hustling through this Pandemic.

River & Trail

Sean has always been a huge supporter of my blog. Anytime I have reached out for a #30in30 giveaway item or a silent auction donation he has never declined.

This weekend, I made my first purchase from his new online shop!

A post a few weeks ago on Facebook noted that this was a 2021 goal, but was moved ahead in light of the State of Emergency.

All kinds of goodies are online including Patagonia, YETI, the North Face and so much more!

Offline Board Game Cafe

Offline has started carrying jigzaw puzzles in their online shop. I’ve never been one for puzzles. Clearly my pals are interested, as my instagram has been taken over with photos of half finished masterpieces!

In addition to the puzzles, Susan and her team have been restocking with boardgames fit for families, couples or individuals in lockdown.

In Pursuit

This time of year would typically have us looking forward to the first Queen Square Market with our blanket in hand. The end of April / beginning of May has me looking for the relaunch of the In Pursuit Mobile Boutique set up on Prince William Street.

D has put a lot of her cards and pencils online in addition to her remaining YSJ and Dog Mom apparel.

I picked up this tote bag to carry around my emotional baggage, haha.

East Coast Bistro

East Coast Bistro is offering daily pickup of specials posted weekly. Orders can be placed by phone or e-mail the day before you want it. The specials include (among so many other things!) their famous milk buns, litres of soup and their ECB burger.

Follow ECB on Facebook here.


Vegolution announced this weekend that they will be taking orders starting this week for pickup Fridays. Not a ton of details yet – but stay close to their Facebook for the more up to date information.

According to their Saturday Facebook post they will do e-transfers by 5pm Monday and deliver on Fridays.

I. Can’t. Wait.

I love Saint John so hard.
