Mega Summer SALE at The Camellia.

Iris blooms in Northern Ontario

Here in Northern Ontario, we are halfway through our so-short Summer, and what a summer it's been! There have been some super hot days, some really cold days and nights, and hordes of mosquitoes and ticks. The upside of being so close to Lake Superior is a cooling breeze blowing off the Lake. 

We are closing our storefront at this time, so we have a MEGA Retirement SALE on all remaining product and fixtures. You will be able to shop online, after the store is closed. Below are some photos of some of our fixtures for Sale, if you are interested, phone and make an appointment.

Goodbye to 2022, The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

Thunder Bay Flower & Gift shop

It's time to say Goodbye to 2022, and to welcome a New Year. This Christmas has been better as we could gather for a meal with our Family & friends. The isolation of the last couple of years has been difficult for most of us. This Holiday season we have had extreme cold, and a lot of snow across most of Canada. Thank you to all of you who have supported our small business, The Camellia, this past Year!

It's almost time to welcome 2023! How are you celebrating?

Entering 2023, we may resolve to organize our belongings. So many of us misplace our stuff on a daily basis, and waste so much time looking for things. Curtain hooks like the ones above, work quite well to hang up assorted homeless items. It sees like every surface gets cluttered with items, as most of us can't be bothered to put things away.

We all have creative pursuits we wish we had time for, like Painting. We tell ourselves, when we have done this task, or paid the bills, then we will paint. Creative pursuits have been proven to help our mental health, so it's important to find the time to pursue them.

Sewing is another creative task that we may wish we had time to pursue. We may resolve to stop endlessly scrolling on social media, which would free up some time to sew.

Here we are, a few days away from Christmas! Most of the real Christmas trees for sale in the stores here had some type of moth infestation, so some of us had to cut down a small tree from our backyards. There is nothing quite like the smell of a real Christmas tree! We have lots of snow on the ground here in Thunder Bay.
