A yearly STI test is recommended for anyone who is sexually active, especially if you:
– have had unprotected sex
– are starting a new relationship
– had a condom break or come off during sex
– have experienced symptoms after having unprotected sex.
While we are all spending more time at home, it is a good opportunity to visit your health provider and get tested.

Although we love what we do, COVID-19 has definitely made things more stressful. Our team has had to constantly make changes to the store and how we help customers, and unfortunately, some customers are anxious or worried, and sometimes they take it out on our staff.
So receiving a surprise gift like this? AMAZING. So thoughtful, and so unexpected, and just so lovely. We almost cried with gratefulness.
THIS is why we keep showing up each day, even when we are exhausted, or just wanting to crawl under the doona. We know that what we do helps people.
Thank you to the family that dropped these off to us. It really means so much ❤️❤️❤️
