A healthy diet of words

A bit of eye candy in the window of a local news agent.

This established Ottawa shop, Brittons, is now sharing space with a bookseller — a creative way to survive these tough economic times.

Brittons is one of the few independently-owned news agent left in Ottawa. I love it because it’s a gathering place for everyone from this diverse, downtown neighbourhood. Within the space of an half-hour, you’ll hear all the local gossip, including construction updates, parking woes, where to get new winter tires and news of the latest birth or death. It feels a bit like Coronation Street. I hope their space-sharing strategy works.
