Our Maud: The Life, Art and Legacy of Maud Lewis 
The encyclopedia on all things Maud, Our Maud: The Life, Art and Legacy of Maud Lewis tells the story of Maud’s life, and traces her impact on Nova Scotia. The book looks at how Maud Lewis has become a role model for children with juvenile arthritis, her posthumous role in the creation of Atlantic Canada’s largest art museum, and how her story has become known around the world, culminating in the hit feature film Maudie, starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke. $29.99

Pendleton Wool Products
Since 1909, Pendleton has produced Indigenous blankets, robes, and shawls. Prior to the introduction of mill techniques, traditional blankets were made from hides or pelts of smaller animals which had been sewn together or woven from wool, feathers, down, bark, and cotton; and, in some areas, shredded cedar bark. These colourful blankets were integrated into everyday and ceremonial uses; part of a dowry, weddings, gift-giving, powwows, dance prizes, naming ceremonies, funerals, and memorials. From $37
