As many of you probably know, I’m from the South shore of Nova Scotia, the East Coast of Canada. The pink dots on the map below, are general areas of where I have lived. I have never met nicer, friendlier people. And boy do we love our Tim Horton’s!
Last year when we drove home to Nova Scotia, we stopped at every Tim’s in our path. When at our first one in New Brunswick, a woman, two people behind me in line, and I started chatting, a completely stranger, I knew I was home, back in the Maritimes.
Last year as well, a student at Acadia University created a great brand, East Coast Lifestyle, which has turned into a movement. It was founded on the basis that people want to wear and represent where they come from. Not only are “normal” everyday people wearing this band but also NHL players, actors and celebrities are too.
I finally decided that I needed to own one of these sweatshirts. I want to support the East Coast.
My sweatshirt also arrived with a temporary tattoo and this card with the story of how they started. I am proudly wearing my East Coast Lifestyle sweatshirt in Saskatchewan. As long as it doesn’t get too hot out there today.
