County Keepsakes

“The only souvenir shop in Prince Edward County”

Specializing in local souvenirs and gifts.

Opened: May 15, 2014

After 10 years with the Prince Edward County Chamber of Tourism & Commerce, Janet saw a need for a shop specializing in local souvenirs and gifts. “With the beaches, art and food scene, the wineries and more, Prince Edward County is an exciting vacation spot and visitors are looking for mementos of their time here” says Janet.

Shortly after her retirement, Janet Robbins opened County Keepsakes. “My first year with County Keepsakes was very successful and I am looking forward to even more fun this year” notes Janet.

She remarks, “County Keepsakes is hoping to create a destination within a destination. This year, the shop will feature some very new and exclusive products and am anxious to see how they are received. We will have a food truck or two on site as well as ice cream. There will also be room for artisans and a local produce stand on site.”

County Keepsakes features many unique and exclusive souvenir items that are not available anywhere else. Janet chuckles, “we’re the official home of the Olympic Wine Tasting T-Shirt and the Adult Sippy Cups. Come by and have a look.”

Bluewater Marine Surveying

MARINE SURVEYS FOR INSURANCE AND PRE-PURCHASE

Marine surveying involves an assessment of a boat’s structure and all its systems as well as a valuation. Not only important for safety reasons, a marine survey is also a requirement for insurance.

“Prince Edward County has been my family’s home for 35 years and it has a long, proud marine heritage” notes George Bridle.

A graduate of Queen’s University, Seneca College and the International Institute of Marine Surveying, George enjoyed a 30 year career in technical management with the airlines, Bombardier Transportation and Calgary Transit.

Early retirement presented a new opportunity for George. Taking courses with the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron (CPSS) and with an application in for membership to the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS), George’s first year of operation for Bluewater Marine Surveying will be 2015. “Boating has always been my passion, my hobby is my 33 foot trawler – the Sarah Ann, and marine surveying gives me an opportunity to make my passion and hobby my occupation. I operate out of a mobile office where I can generate reports and stay onsite anywhere in Ontario for as long as is required. I also offer scuba services carrying out underwater hull inspections.”
