sharing a little love with a new friend in town

Shared by Anita Ruivo + Dwayne Brown

What do you love about the new Frank and Oak store in Westboro?

Today was a really cool experience in social networking – asking people what they love about Ottawa and what they love about a new store in town. We set up our canvas in the new Frank and Oak store in Westboro for a few hours and asked customers what they loved, and surprisingly their answers were hard to distinguish between Ottawa and Frank and Oak. It was also really awesome to meet so many interesting folks – tattoo artists to teachers, photographers to hair stylists, restauranteurs to print specialist, designers to writers and archivists to artists. It truly was a social networking event that combined welcoming a new store to town and celebrating some very cool and positive folks who help make up the vibrant community of Ottawa!



“I find myself constantly inspired in this community, whether it is just by walking through the streets or along the canal, meeting new people, taking a yoga class, or discovering parts of the city I haven’t seen before. For this reason ‘Inspiration’ was my word of choice.” ~ Sarah Gleason
