Joining Hands With the Neighbours- Shop Local Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills




Running a business in a small town is tough.. really tough.. so this year let’s keep business inside the proximity of our two towns. Every day or close to it I will post what’s available in each town. Let’s keep business in OUR TOWNS– and not elsewhere. Let’s promote our towns together and SHARE what we have to offer each other. Let’s visit each other and support each other.

As Deedee Sonnenburg said:  I did some Christmas shopping downtown yesterday, everyone was so kind, I got to chat with everyone, things you don’t get in the bigger box stores, and I gotta say it felt really good!!!”




Believe me; nobody is going to turn down the chance to have chocolate fudge as a gift for a special occasion. Opening that package of delicious chocolate fudge and smelling the rich aroma is always a special treat Christmas memories are made of.

No matter where you choose to purchase your chocolate fudge from, the great part of the gift is in the decorative tins you choose. You can really be elaborate with the designs. Each person on your list can receive their own special personalized tin matching their individual taste. For those who have a little extra money to spend on gifts, you might consider using a wooden box or some other sort of special treasure keepsake to add the chocolate fudge to.
