Mother's Day


Cornelia Bean knows mothers – the store is owned and run by Cory, a mother to three children (and second mom to a few staff), and Cory’s mom is often sitting by the window with a coffee and speculoos cookie. And so, because of our love for mothers here, we have made sure to carry some of the most beautiful gifts for this year’s Mother’s Day.

We really need more than one day to give our thanks, our love, and our admiration to our mothers. We could spend every day of the entire year voicing our gratitude and wonder at the phenomenon that is a mother. Whether she is your birth mother, adopted mother, family member or friend that mothers you, this Sunday is our chance to say an extra special thank you and love you!

We are stocked with Manitoba-made products and in case you missed the Third and Bird craft fair last weekend, we carry many items from the elegant and timeless Mud and Stone pottery, as well as, fun and unique Coal & Canary candles. You could also add a jar of Manitoba honey or we can help you choose a few beautiful tea or coffee selections that are unique, delicious and thoughtful. For a final touch, add some of our beautiful and bright Paviot napkins.

Just when we’re done celebrating Mother’s Day, it’s time for the May long weekend. A weekend that signals the beginning of lake life, camping season, and summer! Finally! Whether you’re in the city, park, or lakeside, you can brew the perfect cup of tea or coffee with our new Espro tea and coffee presses. The Espro presses have a patented double micro-filter for the cleanest cup possible, as well as being light, durable and very portable. Come check out our huge lineup of coffees from around the world to use in your Espro press!

If you’re ready to get healthy and happy for the summer, pick up a Kombucha brewer and pitcher. Kombucha is a super healthy drink option for the summer that you can easily make at home or the cottage. We carry the beautiful organic black teas that you need to brew your own and would be very happy to guide you through making your own first batch!

There is lots to celebrate this year – Mother’s Day, the May long weekend and the approaching summer! We would love to share these celebrations with you and your family and help you find the best way to honour your mother, embrace the May long weekend and bring in summer!
