Newmarket's Main St - Shopping, Services and Movie Star Good looks!
|Main St Newmarket - Yours To Enjoy!|
Admittedly I've neglected Main St Newmarket somewhat of late until nearing the Jazz + Festival when I returned again to the prodigal son, or daughter as it were. As I scoped out Main for good photo shot locations, I began to notice a few empty units from where Scotia Bank stood for many a year.

"Hey you're Tom right?", he said to me.
Ken Sparks'd seen me from my various video, F.B. & blog postings and wanted to introduce himself. Turns out he and his wife own the Good Vibes franchise store there and had been commissioned to sell T-shirts for the Festival,

I recall having popped into the location when they first opened but wasn't clear on what they offered, which is an exclusive line of kids / teens/family clothes sold by "Good Vibes", featuring the "Life Is Good" line of shirts and clothing wear with their cool distinctive message logoing. I still want to have a closer look see to see why it is people travel from all hells acres to buy this line as the areas only consumer distributor for miles. The Boston based Good Vibes parent company also donates 10% to children's and youth causes which is an interesting business model. I'll be back!
Speaking of T-shirts, across the street, CanadaT.com has just expanded their printed T- Shirt selection by eliminating the sales of retro records from the store which they'd added for a spell, but which proved hard to manage - however the new array of wacky message shirts got me chuckling and thinking as well about some ideas of my own for T-shirt designs. As a visually creative and word guy, it fits me to a "T". Ha.
Glenn Wilson, spousal co-owner of CanadaT's, along with Olga, informed me that they had done some business on the Saturday during the Jazz + Festival, and, most notably, when pressed, he agreed that indeed he'd had a busier Saturday than usual and those days in general during it, so that is good. I'm sure he would still would liked to have the T-shirt printing contract for the event but I'm confident he'll be in the mix for next year now that they are a little more exited now about it's potential growth and it's longevity as an event.

Recently I watched a documentary on the origins of the printed message T-shirt. It was a fascinating history and one that inspired an idea to create a contest for designing T-shirts, and perhaps putting them for sale for the winners in a store and online as well. The good people at Custom T.com liked the idea too having thought about it before and as we talked I got excited. Hey, it doesn't take much these days! Lol. And judging by some of the outrageously talented artists in the area as witnessed at the Jazz+ Fest, there should be no shortage of entries. Stay Tuned for future Announcements and links here on this!
Other newish stores on Main, in addition to the new Comic store location, Goulash House, Hops Brew Pub and yogurt house already, include a green scooter distributor and one place that seems to have everything including a kitchen sink! Lol. A new Tea House featuring specialty unique teas adorns the n.w. corner of Main & Eagle beside a now available former bank location, meantime further north on Main S a new Fish & Chips restaurant is being added to the growing mix of fantastic downtown diners!
