This Weekend at Norton’s Cove

I am STILL printing, signing, packaging, shipping Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks all over the place.

It’s gonna be a busy weekend! I’m in the studio working away today and Saturday, and Sunday is dedicated to training at the Café, meeting up with new employees, and getting the Café back to her sparkling self, ready to reopen on Thursday. I can hardly believe that summer is about to start! And we’re going to start it off with a bang!

I’m still packaging up product to send out to shops, and I’ve got a few more prints to pull before my orders are all full. We’ve also been updating our own displays, moved the coffee machine out of the studio, and we’re getting things ready to open up the café on the 16th! Lots to do! I can’t wait to order my first cappuccino and a hand-pie for elevenses two weeks from now! But for now, back to packaging squid!

This Week at Norton’s Cove

We are printing and packaging Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-prints, and Bookmarks this week at the studio. Order due dates are passing us by and we’re printing into the night to get it all done! We’re working on about half of the spring orders now, and will start printing all over again once these are sent out. This year is different than most because orders were taken in April at the Craft & Gift Wholesale Show instead of in February as usual, so I normally have an extra two months to work on those orders.

Packaging all those pieces: folding cards, stamping their backs, stuffing them into bags, adding tassels to bookmarks, putting mats on mini-prints & etc., can be tedious work sometimes. I love having visitors while I’m doing that kind of work to keep me company. Please do stop in for a chat. We’re open 10-6 Wednesday to Saturday.

We’re making plans for the Café: opening dates and booking bands and that sort of thing. There’s just three weeks left until the Café is in full swing- I can hardly believe it’s almost summer already! And yes, we are taking reservations for the full season already!

This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio & Café

The studio is open 10-6 on Saturdays this month, and any other time by chance or appointment. I have accepted a short term position working at the local museum & gallery, but will be back in the studio evenings and weekends to fill online orders and to print spring orders. Duke will be spending some time at the studio too, while I’m away, making a ton of rope mats! You know he likes a chat- please do stop in and say hello when you see the open sign out!

This Week at Norton’s Cove Café

We had an overwhelmingly successful Feast of Saint Valentine event at the Café on the 13th & 14th. In the fall and early winter, it’s easy to feel a bit tuckered out when it comes to thinking about the café and all the work involved trying to make everything run smoothly. We want the business to provide what our customers want, but also it needs to make enough money to pay the bills and enable us to keep going. That can be pretty stressful! But this event in mid-February, when we’ve been feeling refreshed and almost ready for spring to arrive again, reminds us of how much we love what we’re doing, and how much this venue means to the people around us. Honestly, the comments coming back have been very heart-warming. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It really is the nourishment our business needs!
Now that we have completed the downstairs space at the Café, which we call the Lower Deck, and some of the COVID restrictions look like they’ll be relaxing soon all across the country, I’m hoping to line up a new series of Live @ the Lower Deck events. I am looking for professional performers to stand in this spotlight and entertain us. Interested artists should introduce themselves via email and include links to examples of their work.

This Week at Norton’s Cove Café

The Feast of Saint Valentine is almost sold out! Thank you so much for such a wonderful response! Click HERE to read the menu and order your event tickets! We’ll have a full staff in house to make your evening meal a pleasure, and I will be trying out the new Lower Deck space for the first time- please do come hang with me there for a drink or two in a relaxing atmosphere with your bubble before or after your meal. We’ll be funnelling everyone through the upstairs entry- don’t forget to bring your VaxPass QR code!

I am collecting love songs for the special Valentine’s playlist- what is your favourite love song?

Mussel Heart Norton’s Cove Cards and Mini-Prints are available in the studio, the online shop, and in the Café gift-shop! Cards are $7.25 each, Minis are $14.50, and Framed Minis go for $50.
