CALLING ALL CHOCOLATE LOVERS!
Ottawa’s Drew and Erica Gilmour have spent their careers working with farmers in developing countries around the world. Combining their love of chocolate and their access to specialty cacao beans seemed natural. They began slowly, making chocolate for themselves and their friends, and then became truly obsessed with finding and sharing the incredible and differing tastes of cacao.
Organic sugar is the only thing they add, which means their product is dairy-free and gluten-free. Find Hummingbird chocolate Sundays at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market at Brewer Park.

Too often our closets become cluttered with out-of-season, out-of-style items that are no longer suited to our lifestyle. Inside Out is a new twist on an old idea. Sisters Amanda and Angie aim to inspire by reorganizing your closet to be more functional. In collaboration with you, they will evaluate your wardrobe, offer ideas about how to wear different items and help decide if items are no longer useful. Discarded clothing is donated to various charities. Alternatively, lightly used designer items are consigned online. Find more info at shopinsideout.ca
