This winter has pushed everyone to their limit!
How many times have you said, “I am not shovelling anymore!” but then you find you’re outside, removing the never ending white stuff from the end of your driveway, just so you can get out in the morning.
Makes one want to hibernate … but what to do? What to do?
What about you start planning for spring?
Believe it or not, it is coming, and right now is the perfect time to look at what needs to be done around the house.
Remember how you wanted to replace the flooring in the kitchen? Or what about the basement bathroom you want to renovate?
We can help you.

Summer is coming (that’s the rumour going around)
With the record amount of snow we’ve had, don’t tell me you didn’t eat your feelings. Well, it’s time to start shedding the winter weight and get yourself healthy!
The Gym Fitness Centre has two different boot camps available on the auction — Four-week Bikini Boot Camp and Four-week Gladiator Boot Camp … the starting bid is $74. You better hurry and bid on one of these packages because they won’t last long.
If the boot camp isn’t your thing, don’t worry, the auction has three-month yoga membership for Two Souls Yoga.
After all those workouts, you better grab yourself one of those 60-minute float session available from Float Pod Spa (your muscles with thank you).
Don’t forget, exercise isn’t enough. You also have to eat right. You will find five $100 gift certificates from Durham Natural Foods — a great place to purchase any body care, vitamins and organic products to help you on your way to a healthy you.
What other treats can you find?
There are so many different items up for auction we couldn’t possible list them all … not for the lack of trying, but there is only so much typing one person can do!
One category you might be interested in is the entertainment section. There are gift certificates for theatre, musical and comedy packages, and there is also several different packages available for Northern Lights Festival Boreal. All of them starting at 50 percent the original cost!
Why not make it a date night! There are some restaurant gift certificates up for grabs, as well.
We’ve covered home and garden renos, health and fitness, and entertainment …. what else could we possibly have available in the Northern Ontario Winter Auction?
What about a better night’s sleep?
Beside spending half your time shovelling snow, the other major portion of your time is spent in bed. Great news! We have four mattress up for bid. You could scoop up one of these comfy mattresses for half price! A great mattress would help make hibernating the rest of winter achievable!
What about sports and leisure?
We have two $500 gift certificates from Skater’s Edge Source for Sport and there is a Polaris helmet from Elliot Equipment Rental — both of them starting at 50% the original retail price!
There are also items that would be a great gift for your mom (for Mother’s Day that’s fast approaching!) All starting at half price … you just can’t beat these deals. Mom would love to receive a bouquet from Bella’z Blooms. Don’t forget, all moms are into comfy wear. You’ll find women’s Under Armour hoodie from Haggar’s Men’s Wear — a great gift for mom! You will definitely bump up to the top of her favourite-child list.
