On one of our daycations we visited the town of Cobourg and had an enjoyable time browsing the stores in their downtown section.
One particular store that we loved was Nessie’s. A friendly store where you can purchase items from Britain, and one we will certainly be returning to.
Inside was like taking a trip down memory lane. I was born in England and didn’t come to Canada till I was 8. My husband spent some of his childhood there from when he was 3 to 11. We also lived there from 1975 to 1981 and two of our daughters were born there and registered Canadians born abroad.
There is a wonderful selection of British foods … tea, pickles, marmalades, candy or sweets as they are called over there, cookies or biscuits as the British say, and a wonderful selection of Scottish baked goods. It was a chance to buy some of our favourites.
If you are a Coronation Street fan, like I am, there was a huge selection of goods promoting the show … mugs, bags, calendars, teapots and more. And my husband was thrilled to find a couple of his favourite boyhood comics in the hardcover annuals.
