It’s true! Canada’s favourite, feisty redhead is available online, and you don’t even have to travel to Cavendish, Prince Edward Island to get caught up in the excitement. The Anne store carries everything from dolls and baubles to books, DVDs, baby items, jewellery, stationary, collectibles and much more.
There’s few things more Canadian than a Caesar, and we’re not talking about salad. A little known fact is that this classic Canadian drink was invented at the Palliser Hotel in Calgary, Alberta. Ever since, it has evolved to include additions like pepperoni, pickles, shrimp, horseradish and so much more. But the one ingredient you can’t go without is the Clamato juice!
