Uptown Mug #80 . Mishelle Carson-Roy

She works in a colorful store, she wears colorful clothes, and ‘she’s a rainbow’ colorful personality.  Mishelle manages Freak Lunchbox on King Street, and she certainly adds a spark to our community.  Always with a huge smile and full of fun, we are lucky to have her as one of our uptown people, and show her off whenever we can.  She is also very talented with the camera – if you are on Instagram, look her up and enjoy life through her eyes.  And, when you’re feeling like some sugar, stop by Freak Lunchbox to pick from a plethora of yummy treats and say hi when you’re there!

Let’s get to know Mishelle!

Where were you born/Where are you from?

I was born in Saint John and have lived in both Gingerbread Styled Houses and The Jellybean building..I’m just naturally drawn to old architecture and sweets!  I moved to Halifax for college but returned in 2010 to have my son. The saddest part of leaving Halifax was leaving behind my job at Freak Lunchbox, You could imagine my excitement having our Saint John location follow me home a few months after my return.

How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?

I’ve been working uptown since 2011 and I’ve loved every minute of it. There’s just something about our people here, so many of our regular customers have become friends over the years!

What is your favorite season, and why?

I’m a sucker for our Fall Season. There’s something about watching all of the leaves change colour that just makes you feel warm and cozy.

Any pets?

I have a 20Lb Cat at home named Kevin, and a house trained Lop Rabbit named Waffles.

What is your Uptown Insider Tip?

My biggest insider tip is to just take yourself on a walk through the streets of uptown and look up. It’s amazing how many tiny details this city has to offer and we miss out on so much. Take the time and see for yourself!

The group has since given regular concerts throughout southern New Brunswick. It members are Hok Kwan and Katherine Moller (baroque violins)and Tim Blackmore (harpsichord & recorder).

 

 

 

 

The Carleton Chamber Players, a modern-instrument ensemble varying in size from two to five musicians, was formed in 2016 to perform late 18th century repertoire for various combinations of flute, strings and keyboard. Led by Tim Blackmore (harpsichord, piano & recorder), the ensemble’s other core members are Hok Kwan (violin), and Daniel Britt (violoncello). With the addition of another violin and viola the ensemble functions as a chamber orchestra for the Early Music Festival.
