Just a Card

There’s a campaign happening on the world wide web that I feel I can wholeheartedly be a part of…

I have been saying these words for all 15 years that I’ve been in business here.  If everyone in my hometown bought one card each year, I’d be able to make a living as an artist.  But my business has made it for 15 years- because I’ve had support from a loving family who didn’t mind helping out.  And because I’ve also been working for another company for the past 10 years in order to gain a dependable income.  For most of those years, I have not taken a pay-cheque from Norton’s Cove Studio Inc.  Oftentimes, the business costs me more money than it makes.  And now I’ve taken all the credit/financing/loans I can get to build a restaurant which needs the support of the community too.

It is incredibly important to shop locally and support our own community.  Just a card. Or a piece of cake.  It makes a huge difference to twelve employees of Norton’s Cove Studio & Café now, not just me.  So it’s even more important to me than ever before to help spread the word.  Just a card.

One thought on “Just a Card

  1. Janet & Duke, I always enjoy your short stories about living near the sea in Bonavista Bay. My ambition along with my daughters and husbands is to visit the Wesleville are soon, not before the Summer of 2018. Meanwhile, if you are in Halifax or near by, let me know. We have sold our home that we had about 40 odd years & have rented an old house built in 1880plus. We are in the North end of Halifax now and we enjoy it. Phone 902 430 8487 & leave a message. Best to you both, Carl
