pinkginger gets mentioned in cyberpresse.ca

I worked last weekend on Sunday and I had a lovely visit from a customer who lives in Gatineau.  We struck up a great conversation about argan oil, organic personal care products, neighbourhoods and restaurants!  By the end of the conversation, she left with some great Deep Steep products http://www.pinkgingershop.com/brand-products.php?brand=Deep%20Steep products and our business card.  She told me she would mention pinkginger to her daughter who is a writer for http://www.cyberpresse.ca and to my delight there is a lovely little article about pinkginger and Merrickville.  Our customer even took a great picture of the outside of our store!  Here is the link: http://bloguesmu.cyberpresse.ca/granos/ or keep reading below for both the French version and my translated version (I am truly sorry for any errors in translation). But before that, just a small bit on argan oil;

For our customers who are looking for amazing argan oil, we will have it in the shop soon and online!

Argan oil is called miraculous by some.  Argan oil comes from the nuts of an argan tree, most of which are in Morocco.  Some of our customers who use argan oil tell us that there skin texture has drastically improved due to its restorative properties and ant-aging effects.  It is extremely high in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids.  Many claim it helps with psoriasis, dry skin and provides for a more youthful look!  I can’t wait to get it in the store!

Yes, I did digress – below is the article from cyberpresse.ca in both French and English!

Merrickville, Merrickville

Ève Dumas

Lorsque ma mère, qui habite à Gatineau,  en a marre de magasiner sur le boulevard Maloney, elle et son chum font une promenade du dimanche jusqu’à Merrickville. Ce charmant petit village se trouve à 40 minutes d’Ottawa, en direction de Kingston. On y trouve de jolies boutiques,  des pubs sympathiques et des produits locaux, dont les  extraordinaires moutardes et chutneys Mrs. McGarrigle’s.

Ma chère «Moumsie» ne manque jamais de me faire part de ses découvertes par voie de courriel. Je partage sa plus récente missive électronique avec vous:

«Dimanche, nous  sommes allés à Merrickville pour acheter la mousse à bain bio (je t’en envoie un petit contenant par la poste pour que tu puisses l’essayer et je te donnerai le gros contenant quand je te verrai). Cette petite boutique est vraiment bien. Ça s’appelle Pinkginger et une des deux proprios, qui s’appelle Chay Geauvreau, a aussi un blogue. Elle, son chum et leurs deux jeunes enfants sont végétaliens et elle ne vend que des produits (pour les petits enfants et les adultes) qui sont bios. Il y a même du Dr. Alkaitis dont je t’ai donné les produits en cadeau et que j’avais fait venir de la Californie (si j’avais su). Elle est vraiment gentille, je lui ai recommandé de s’approvisionner en huile d’argan et lui ai donné un endroit à Pointe-Claire où elle peut s’en procurer.

Je lui ai parlé de ton blogue (elle ne parle pas français mais son chum est franco). Voici son site si tu veux le regarder : www.pinkgingershop.com. On peut acheter en ligne.  Et son blogue : www.pinkvegan.wordpress.com.

La mousse à bain que j’achète pour les enfants est le Deep Steep. Tu peux aller voir.

And now for the translation:

Merrickville, Merrickville

When my mother, who lives in Gatineau, is tired of shopping on Maloney Boulevard, she and her husband goes for a Sunday drive to Merrickville. This charming small village is 40 minutes outside of Ottawa, in the direction of Kingston. One finds there pretty shops, cozy pubs and local products, and the extraordinary mustards and chutneys Mrs. McGarrigle’ S.
My dear “Moumsie” never fails to inform me of her discoveries by way of email. I will share her latest e-mail with you:
“Sunday, we went in Merrickville to buy organic bubble bath (I sent a small container by the post office to you so that you can try it out and I will give you the large container when I see you). This small shop is really good. It is called Pinkginger and one of the two owners,  is named Chay Geauvreau, also has a blog. She, her husband and their two young children are vegans and she sells only products (for the small children and the adults) which are organic. There is even Dr. Alkaitis of which I gave you as a gift and which I had got from California (if only I had known). She is really nice, I recommended to her to supply  argan oil and gave her a place in Point-Claire where she can get some. I spoke to her about your blog (she does not speak French but her husband does). Here is the site if you want to look at it: www.pinkgingershop.com. You can buy on line. And her vegan blog is at www.pinkvegan.wordpress.com. The bubble bath that I bought for the children is Deep Steep. You can go to see.
And that’s the end of the article.  I found it very sweet for her daughter to directly post her Mom’s email in her blog entry. And that’s why I love blogs, you get away from the overly edited corporate speak and into a world where people are more real or more true to themselves.  By for now.
