Baubles has a new location!

For over 25 years Baubles has graced Brunswick Square Mall with style and flare and will continue to do so from its new location on the 2nd level. Baubles’ owner, Sandy Teed, has brought in new lines of jewellery and clothing to the new location, while still complementing the existing brands. Baubles has something for everyone!

The open-concept floor plan of the new space features beautiful lighting,  creating a delightful and inviting shopping experience.

If you didn’t already know, Baubles carries products from Spanx to scarves and everything in between. While still carrying classic lines like Tribal and Renvar, their new lines include locally hand-crafted jewellery by “Crazy Sisters” and trendy clothing from Soyaconcept, Esqualo, and Charlie.B.

Also, from now until Thursday, May 31st, with every purchase you make you will be entered into a draw to win a gift card worth $250.

Check out the photos of the new space below!

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas”

Add to your holiday experience by a shopping day in our quaint and charming city centre.  There is nothing quite like the seasonal trimmings uptown – the lights, the shop windows and the holiday feel of the city at Christmas.

Uptown Saint John Inc. and the Saint John City Market have partnered to offer FREE Horse Drawn Trolley rides around King’s Square every Saturday in December, leading up to Christmas, between 1-3pm.  The trolley stops on King Square North – so gather the kids, bring your date, or venture out on your own to enjoy a nostalgic ride around the decked out King’s Square.

Rogue Coffee, Our Newest Cozy Coffeeshop

So, if you haven’t already heard, uptown Saint John is now home to a pretty incredible little coffeeshop, Rogue Coffee.  Tucked into a quaint little nook off Grannan Alley, Rogue fits like it was meant to be there all along, bringing us specialty coffee in a cozy space.  Time stands seems to still as you sit and sip.

Located at 36 Grannan Street, here you will find solace amid the permeating aromas of all things coffee. The space has been tastefully decorated, keeping the exposed brick and beams and industrial feel with soft touches of wild flower bouquets and a more contemporary coffee bar counter.

The coffee, espresso and various brews are impressive, utilizing the first Mod Bar in Atlantic Canada. Rogue also serves Kombucha on tap, Prosecco on tap, and nitro-infused cold brew.  Watching the baristas prepare your drink is watching an artist, and be sure to grab a handmade treat, freshly made by their neighbours Port City Royal.  Rogue plans to host musicians in the adjoining alley at times, and offer ‘cake and prosecco’ nights as well as various other events for coffee connoisseurs and enthusiasts.

Be sure to stop by and follow them online;

And below, presenting the lovely owners; Mike and Vanessa, a dynamic duo – ambitious, charming and fun!   Stop by the coffeeshop to see them for real, and grab a Rogue coffee while you’re there!
