It’s always very exciting when something new opens in Charlottetown.
It’s even more exciting (for me) when they want to have my things in their shop.
The Young family (Adam, Rebekha and their 3 lovely boys) recently moved to Charlottetown and is opening up Young Folk and the Kettle Black. It’s a coffee shop/store. I actually went to high school with Rebekha in Ottawa, many years ago. It was so nice to see her again. She and Adam fell in love with PEI after visiting, (it’s hard not to) and decided to move here last year.
Last weekend, with my sick Ila in tow (I didn’t know it was hand, foot and mouth at the time!), I dropped off a bunch of paintings, fabric pieces and cards for the store.
It is a beautiful space, where the old Ampersand used to be. They are opening this weekend and will be selling all sorts of lovely things upstairs and downstairs there will be cake and coffee…
yes, the coffee… let me tell you about the coffee! It is the best coffee I’ve had on PEI. I almost cried when I tasted it. I’ve been wanting to go back and have another ever since, but have been stuck at home with a contagious child. Soon.
They are such kind and lovely people and it’s a wonderful little space, just what this little town needs.
