Support Small Sunday – Treasure Cove!

Treasure Cove has been a staple in the Airdrie community for many years. They are a strong supporter of local creators, and we want to show our appreciation!

With an ever-changing selection of comics and collectibles, it’s also a great place to find our books. In case tabletop games are your thing, their games room has re-opened! Next time you’re in Airdrie, be sure to stop by and say hello.

Support Small Sunday – Owl’s nest Books!

To start this month’s support local feature, we’d like to shout out an amazing independent book store, Owl’s Nest Books.

They have an amazing selection of Albertan authors and also the newest from national bestsellers. It’s cozy inside the store, and the staff are friendly and helpful. It’s hard not to find something exciting to read there. Check out these titles we picked up on our last visit. 

Added bonus: we can grab some coffee and pie from the nearby Sunterra too!

August is Support Local Month

The past two years have really focused on the importance of shopping local, and just like you, we’re doing our part.

Pencil on Paper will be sharing some of our favourite local businesses every Sunday in August, so keep watch for the first one tomorrow. 

Remember to show your local shops some love too!
