The most magical time of year is right around the corner and after the year we’ve had, I can’t wait to celebrate with an ocean of holiday cheer this year!
The first ever East Coast Mermaid Holiday Gift Guide launched in 2016 and year after year we’ve grown to support more and more local businesses in Atlantic Canada. And after a summer of my fellow beach-lovers showing up in force to support East Coast Mermaid and our apparel line Sandy Toes Shop—well, this year we’re doing things a little different.
Being a business owner, I know that pre-holidays are the busiest time of year. There is SO much to do that oftentimes we miss out on the early gift guides targeted at increasing sales.
So this year, instead of a traditional gift guide, we’re celebrating YOU and all our followers with 12 days of giveaways!
Introducing the 12 Days of a New Brunswick Christmas GIVEAWAYS!
