In The News: The Local Wishlist on CTV!

I had the pleasure of spending Friday morning with the lovely and talented Ana Almedia from CTV talking about local gifts. That segment aired Friday night in Section Six. I haven’t been able to find a recording to share, but if you caught it and wanted more details on the gifts you saw, here’s what we talked about:

Thank you to Ana and the CTV crew for helping more people discover great local gifts this year!

These selections were taken from the 5th Annual Local Wishlist. Discover hundreds of gifts made in Nova Scotia or available from independently owned businesses in your community HERE.

About the author

Gillian Wesley

Since getting together six years ago, we have given away our television, begun weekly DIY nights, experimented with urban homesteading, challenged ourselves to drive less (100 days car-free in 2013), and have learned more about food security. We have experimented with a range of budgeting strategies, all of which involve consuming less stuff. We buy food with reducing packaging in mind. We got a dog. We have been doing these things for a variety of reasons: financial, social, environmental, to achieve a better work-life balance. It has resulted in us enjoying an increasingly simple and satisfying lifestyle. We’ve been influenced by a lot of people we’ve encountered and things we’ve read about along the way, notably the Transition Movement, the Antigonish Movement, and, more recently, traditional Acadien living. And we’ve learned that we are by no means alone. There are many, many people who are taking steps to downshift their lives. Sign up for our eNewsletter, and we’ll send you a round-up of our new and upcoming projects once a month.
