Them Days in St. John’s

20180224 - Sam Saunders and Robin McGrath in St. John's CCNL.jpg

Last weekend, Them Days was represented at the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador’s 2018 Provincial Craft & Gift Wholesale Show. We were lucky to have a couple of volunteers out there help out by representing Them Days–Robin McGrath and Sam Saunders. Look how great they look, and our table too! Thank you for all the hard work you put into making our table a success, Robin and Sam! It is much appreciated.

If you would like to be a retailer of Them Days, please call our office at 709-896-8531 or send an e-mail to themdays@themdays.com. We look forward to working with you!

Hello, Maggie

I was reminded by a regular blog reader that I have yet to share a photo of Maggie (as I promised when I returned!) So here she is, back in December when I had to take her to work for the morning. Cute, hey?

For a more up-to-date picture (video, actually!), check out this Tweet by Jacob Barker at CBC…which probably should have been captioned “Them Days editor Aimee Chaulk nervously eating a grape with a fork.” You can see Maggie on John’s lap, and Beatrix too! (It’s been awhile since you’ve seen her for sure, blog readers…isn’t she getting so big now?!)

The power is about to go out…see you later, blog readers!

Lots of Snow!

We live in Labrador, so you might expect that we get a lot of snow in the winter. We generally do. But this is shaping up to be a winter of gargantuan proportions! These pictures were taken last Thursday, February 1, after we got 38 cm. And we’ve had a few snowfalls since then!

Welcome Back, Pei!

Last week, Pei started working at Them Days again. He recently graduated from his Master of Folklore program at Memorial, which coincided nicely with our receiving a grant from Library and Archives Canada’s Documentary Heritage Communities Program. We’re starting Phase II of the Labrador Identification and Dissemination Initiative, more commonly known as #IDThemDays, and Pei is going to be the Project Researcher for a whole year! You can imagine how excited I am. Since I started at Them Days almost 10 years ago (!!!), one of my goals has been to get the Miscellaneous section of our negative collection straightened out. Terra got the project off to a great start in 2016, but we only had enough money to keep her on for a few months. Now Pei will be building on what she’s accomplished. So expect some posts with archival photos soon! (And if you’re nearby, some tea-and-photo events too!)

Pei did a great job helping out with the Grub issue just before I went on maternity leave, and I know he’ll do a great job in this new position too! Welcome back, Pei!
