    EPISODE 55 - New Year, New Location, Some Updates and More to come

    Hey guys!  So it is 2023, we are still running around like crazy tying up loose ends with our business and making strides towards new adventures with UpCycle Canada in 2023

    Dave here!  Jumping on to say hi!  Been thinking of you all and  wanted to give you a quick update on the store, our business and what is ahead this year.

    We officially closed our retail location as of Dec 24th 2022 when our landlord presented us a 5 year lease option on our store which we could not commit to as well as the obvious rent/lease increase - with sales slowing down we knew it was time to close our dream store location.

    We have found a new home at the https://niagarafleamarket.ca/

    We have a nice size booth - a fraction of our storefront space but at a cheaper rate with less overhead.  The market is open every Sunday - so if you are in the area on a Sunday drop by and see our new home.

    We are going to be back with new eco-friendly guests this year here on the podcast as well as getting back into our recording of the podcast

    We are thinking of doing a live podcast recording - toying with that idea, let us know if you want to be in our studio audience!!??

    Lots of great things ahead, we miss all of you, wanted you to know that we are still here despite all the hardships and disappointments with the closure of our store frint, we will carry on with our custom orders, vendor events, our podcast and serving you!, our friends!

    Thanks for your support
    Love always 
    Dave and Jen

    EPISODE 52 -

    Our Dad Space Podcast - How To Get Out of Your Own Way and Find Contentment in Your Dad Journey

    As we close off 2022, we are busy closing down our storefront, still working full-time, completing custom orders and saying goodbye to our walk-in retail customers, we wanted to share some of our other podcasts that we do with our UpCycle Canada Family!

    I Created Dad Space - a podcast for Dads by Dads to encourage men at any stage along their journey to be a better Dad!  I would love if you checked out our podcast and subscribe and share it with those you love!

    This is a sample episode to give you a taste of the show!

    We will be back together with Jen to talk about all the updates for UpCycle Canada - looking forward to that as well!

    So here is a summary of the notes from this episode on Dad Space

    DAD SPACE EPISODE 27 - 
    How To Get Out of Your Own Way and Find Contentment in Your Dad Journey
    As a Dad we tend to operate in a provider mode - putting others first, making sure everyone around us is good - but what about us, what if we are not... good.  What happens when we "get in the way" of others, we push others hard, maybe too hard.
    How do we become more mindful of others in our day to day and become aware of moments when putting someone ahead of us and stepping aside can change the course of someone's day - or even their life?!
    I had one of those days yesterday, I didn't have time to jump into a room I frequent every week, a room on Clubhouse - the social audio app where you can connect with others and speak on hosted "stages" in topics that interest you as a participant.  I was busy, I had lots going on that day - no time for Clubhouse - but there was this voice - "You need to be there, you will miss this opportunity, go there now" - but I don't have time, "Go there now" - but the room is almost over, it's too late to jump in on the conversation... "Go there now!"  So I did. I joined the room as it was closing, unaware of the topic of the day, I missed all the great speakers, I was as lost as a grade nine student on the first day of classes!
    With no thought of the result, no consideration really as to if my words mattered in that moment or if they were going to be received, I shared my praise for her instead of me and my thing - I got out of the way.  The results were fantastic.
    I have been mulling this over and sharing this thought with others as we cross paths, they tend to write this down as I shared it with them - so here is my thought for this week, and for you - "If you can't find contentment in the journey, it won't be there to greet you when you arrive"  We get in the way by putting ourselves first, even if we are trying to make others around us better - we put great stock in the result, that is where and when we will be content - when I reach this goal, cross that line, hit that target - THEN, and only then will I be content.  
    Get out of your own way, today!

Great Podcast Idea!

I a world where we just throw trash away like nothing, a show about repurposing and elevating old items is very refreshing. No pun intended! Great Show! - Mark Savant
