Christmas gift in goldThis year no gifts will be bought for the Whitson children. They have been good kids but they have reached the point in the consumer evolution that “you guys don’t know what we want.*” “You guys” meaning Tracy and I. This year they want money. Money so they can go buy what they want with no strings attached! Continue reading

Shop Local this Victoria Valentine’s Day

When Valentine’s Day rolls around it can be tempting to just grab some chocolates or jewellery from the nearest big name department store. But there are benefits to shopping locally — it strengthens Victoria’s economy while keeping our communities healthy and happy. Here’s a list of some of our favourite ~*~romantic~*~ local offerings.

Pristine Gemstones
