Amber, One of my online friends parents have just launched a new online store, at BestofPEI.Com, for the already succesful real world store that they own and run in Charlottetown on the Prince Edward Island (PEI), that’s in the north east part of Canada.

They asked Amber for help in getting the site known to the online community, so she posted a blog about it, and now I’m doing the same.

I like the idea of this store because as the name states, everything that they sell was produced on PEI, in a world full of 24 hour Tesco’s and Walmart’s in nearly every town it’s great to see a store that still supports the local producers.

In there own words -
