On one of our daycations we visited the town of Cobourg and had an enjoyable time browsing the stores in their downtown section.
One particular store that we loved was Nessie’s. A friendly store where you can purchase items from Britain, and one we will certainly be returning to.
Inside was like taking a trip down memory lane. I was born in England and didn’t come to Canada till I was 8. My husband spent some of his childhood there from when he was 3 to 11. We also lived there from 1975 to 1981 and two of our daughters were born there and registered Canadians born abroad.
There is a wonderful selection of British foods … tea, pickles, marmalades, candy or sweets as they are called over there, cookies or biscuits as the British say, and a wonderful selection of Scottish baked goods. It was a chance to buy some of our favourites.
If you are a Coronation Street fan, like I am, there was a huge selection of goods promoting the show … mugs, bags, calendars, teapots and more. And my husband was thrilled to find a couple of his favourite boyhood comics in the hardcover annuals.
You can check out Nessie’s on Facebook.
It’s time to share where we live with Our World Tuesday and Signs, Signs.
