filters and other items, we are  sorry to say that we are all sold out. There has been an incredible demand for all of these items,over the past weeks.

We are over-whelmed with the response and the calls from all over Canada and the United States, but our suppliers have run out of everything.

on our patio piazza this Monday, August 21. You are invited to watch the partial eclipse safely on a live video as well as live streaming from NASA. Do bring your  own solar eclipse glasses and your solar filters for cameras and set up on our patio if you would like. Come early to the store for the best spots available.
