Faces of Truro Live
We're so excited to announce a brand new collaboration in my hometown of Truro Nova Scotia. I was born and raised here and while we don't live in Truro at the moment, we're so thrilled to be able to help show-off this special town. I've had the pleasure of watching Truro evolve over the years and the transformation of the downtown core has been remarkable, to say the least. These days you can find all kinds of festivals, events, concerts, block parties, and things to do all year round. And, what's even more special than the events and happenings of the town are the humans making it all happen!
So that's what this series is all about. We're proud to introduce #FACESOFTRUROLIVE where we have the privilege to shine a spotlight on some of the incredible biz owners behind the brands and we're kicking it off with a visit to Thrown Together Pottery with Danielle Sawada.

I maintain that there's no one else who loves pottery as much as I do. In fact, I have a substantial collection and most of it came from Danielle's studio. I've been working for years to replace all of my tableware with pottery and I'm getting very close! But, aside from pottery that you can purchase, there are also some truly unique things happening behind the scenes and that's really what we wanted to focus on today.
