We are grateful for long time customers and customers from other towns like Shelburn and Digby. We have become so well – known for sourcing for things that other stores cannot get for you but we can. We just found a cool snare drum rolling case at wwbw for a customer in Barrington and he was so happy with it that he bought more gadgets for his band. Love the Christmas season because we do so well with all our customers from away. So if you need drum cases or any music gadgets or accessories, you now know where you can get them.

A week ago, after we’ve just put up the Christmas decoration for the store in time for the town’s Christmas’s Parade, some asshole threw a rock thru’ the display window. Although it was broken, the display window is a thermal window, therefore only the outside is broken and not the inside glass.
Of course, we were pissed. Here we are all trying to make the town look nice and trying to get ready for the Ferry to come back to town and hoping the the economy will make good, we have jerks throwing stones in our windows and also others down the road. We were not the only one hit so said the cops and some customers who had come in after the fateful day.
Tonite the cops called to let us know that a youth was arrested – HALLELUJAH!!! and will be charged in court. How he was arrested? well, I hear some video cameras caught the jerk in action. Good job to our town’s cops!
The downtown had a theme for this Christmas and that’s follow the GingerBread man to town and Home Hardware is selling the above ginger bread man and I was thinking that had we known a little bit in advance, we could have ordered some unfinished wood craft supplies and did our entire theme with the GingerBread Man.
Buying just a piece of the above is $15, not a bad price that’s for sure but I could have worked on a gingerbread house and little gingerbread men some other things along the theme of the Gingerbread man. But for now, I’ll just have to settle for one of the above and hopefully, next year we get more notice about the theme much earlier.
For those who are wondering, YES! we are open on Sundays! not to worry ! From 12 – 6pm every Sunday. So come in and shop and rent a movie or buy a movie.

So I got a call recently asking how much I’d pay for a brand new iPad mini. Knowing that “brand new” typically means “used but in like new condition” rather than “still sealed in original plastic” I offered $150. A while later an ipad mini comes in, but in horrible condition. I ask what they’re looking to get for it and they say “you offered $150 on the phone.” Well, on the phone I was told it was brand new, and this obviously isn’t. So against my better judgment I still offer to buy it for $100, and the offer is accepted.
Later that night I get a nasty voice mail from the person’s significant other, roasting me for “ripping her off because she’s a woman” and saying the ipad is worth over $400 + tax new. Well for starters, it wasn’t new and you can buy them new at Walmart for $298 + tax.
Feast your eyes dear readers, and tell me, would you have even paid $100 for this?
Yes, we are open after the Remembrance Day service – at the Mariner’s from noon till 6pm – for those who needs a movie or a game for the holiday.
It is that time of the year again – isn’t it? Yes, Christmas shopping for family and friends, for your associates and for anyone you think deserve something from you. Yes, once again – I’m asking that you support our local downtown business because it’s thru’ supporting your downtown local businesses that keeps us in business.
Shop downtown, love your local store and keep the money in town instead of shopping elsewhere. This year, we are keeping our shopping downtown as well, so I hope you will do the same thing and support your locally owned business. Don’t forget our local Farmer’s market – where you can get all your fresh produce and locally made items there too.

Yes, we have it all, extra cables for your Wii, Xboxes and even your PS3. We also carry charges for your laptops and HDMI Cables for your computers/TV. Sure there might be other places selling them but I can bet that we are selling them at a lot cheaper than they are, so I was told by many customers.
You may not see them in the cabinets but we do have it in our basement if not the store room. So do check if you need any cables, chargers – even for your GBA, Nintendo DS -es.

Yes, you’ve heard right – we do special orders and just was asked by a local organization to order a few electro harmonix big muff for them. We can order any music stuff for you if you have a specific model as we have a few suppliers that we can order from. If we can’t find them in Canada, we can definitely look for them for you in USA. That’s the best part of owning a small business, we don’t have to follow rules and regulations like the big boys where they get what they get and can’t do anything about it. We on the other hand can make the special orders for you and it takes a week or so to arrive depending on where we are ordering from. Christmas is round the corner, don’t forget to support your local small business.keep looking »
