This Week’s Staff Picks from Margie, Associate at our Yonge + Eglinton Location
Margie joined the Drake General Store team in February 2012 bringing her own special flare to our unique environment. Margie is a traveler and city explorer – passionate about friends, family, music and live performances. Her inspiration also comes from tending her urban vegetable garden.
What’s going on in your garden-in-the-city?
I just pickled my beets today and made tomato sauce with some tomatoes. Delicious! I grow a range of great vegetables - cucumbers, beets, tomatoes, onions, peppers, eggplant, zucchini, potatoes and radishes.
What products inspire you now?
The School of Life ‘100 Question Cards.’ I love exploring life’s big questions and use these cards as a toolkit for good conversation. Nothing better than sipping on some Chardonnay with friends and getting down to the nitty gritty!
And the Baggu Drawstring Purse. A great accessory for any adventure. I love the simplicity, design, and durable quality of all Baggu products.
Also the ‘Whatever Banner.’ It’s perfect for any occasion! The 100 multi-colour letters let you be creative and personalize any message! A great DIY to have on hand.
