January spotlight

Community Spotlight: Copperfield

Established in the early 2000's, this family oriented community is a hidden gem in southeast Calgary.  It has quiet streets with excellent walkability and tons of places for families to gather from its own unique pond and walking trail to parks and playgrounds and of course  it has schools!  The commute to downtown ranges from 25-35 minutes on an average day and with Stoney Trail to the south, it offers quick access to the city's main arteries. Filled with young families, they have an active community association with activities for everyone,  check out cmcommunity.ca for more info.  With only a short commute to the South Health Campus, new YMCA, Pinnovate, Charmain's Steakhouse the Bro'Kin Yolk and every store you could possibly need in the Sephard business park,  you'll never have to leave.

Pro Tip: Sellers

Are you getting your house ready for the market?  Chances are you need to do a little updating!  A new light fixture might make all the difference in taking your old tired 2019 dining room into the next decade.  Carrington Lighting Clearance Centre located just off 5th ave and Crowchild in the NW is closing shop and selling off some beautiful fixtures at amazing prices.  It's a buyer's market, you need to make your place stand out.

​Calgary Hot Spot: Central Library

Have you been?!? If not, it's the weekend to go!  There's many activities for all ages and even a small indoor play area for the kids to burn off some energy.  One of the best features that there is a  coffee shop!!! Lukes is there to tend to all your coffee, hot chocolate and pastry needs.   A delicious hot latte and a great book are a great combo as we begin to thaw from these polar temperatures.  Open all day, everyday!

To do in YYC: Calgary Renovation Show

Head down to the BMO Centre this weekend for some home renovation inspiration.  There will be a ton of exhibitors ready to help you whether you're planning a renovation, doing minor upgrades, needing design tips or you just want to splurge on something new and exciting for your home like getting the world's largest hot tub at an awesome price.  It's going to be very cold so roaming the aisles of the BMO centre sound pretty appealing if you ask me.  Free if you're under 13 and lots of discounts available for general admission tickets.
