Pandora’s is your year-round costume store If you love the idea of a ‘tickle trunk’ then you will love Pandora’s Costume Box. This little downtown local business specializes in all things costume. Owner, Marian Truscott, is passionate when it comes to costume designing, dyeing, pattern construction and building costumes. She has been involved with all aspects of theatrical costuming for over 20 years and has been a costumer for film and theatre. Pandora’s Costume Box has been in Kamloops for over 16 years. Marian first started out by working out of her home, until about seven years ago when she moved into their full-time location on Victoria Street. What really makes this costume store stand out from others is that Pandora’s Costume Box is open year-round. It’s not just another Halloween ‘pop-up’ store. “We carry items year round for all your costume needs,” explains Marian. “We always carry supplies for zombie parties, disaster scenario injury makeup, different eyeglasses for nerd parties and we have a lot of Burlesque props like high-quality fishnets, feather boas and all in varying sizes. We are also the only place in town you can get latex wings.” The costumes made by Marian and her skillful team are high quality and made to fit all shapes and sizes. You won’t find these skills in ‘pop-up’ stores where everything is one size and made to last for one wear. “We make our costumes, so they made to fit real people. Also they are not a one-use

Pandora’s Costume Box offers so much more than a seasonal costume store; they provide a unique service for their customers where they can change their lives. Changing

people’s lives is something Marian’s enjoys: “Having somebody come in that isn’t thrilled about getting dressed up. Then when they leave, they are excited about what they are going to wear.

Concerned citizens rally to protest proposed mine

Letter to the Editor We, citizens of Kamloops who are opposed to the degradation of our air, water, land and the well being of our health, animals, and grasslands are rallying to Stop Ajax at 330 Seymour St, Kamloops on Saturday October 26 at 12:00pm. We would like to invite all citizens to join us for the Rally who are opposed, concerned, undecided and even Ajax supporters (in hopes of changing minds). We will share with the City of Kamloops the harm that will be caused to having a copper mine not only in close proximity to a city but within city limits. To address the implications of extraction-based industries and the future of not only the Canadian landscape but also our own backyard, our water shed, our recreation area and for some in Kamloops their front yards and ranch lands. In addition, the loss of some of the best fishing lakes

Sincerely, Concerned Citizens fighting a battle to protect the environment and health of Kamloops, BC.

On October 18 and 19 Reel Change brings its SustainAbility Film Festival to Kamloops, where they present a series of documentary films focusing on pertinent and timely social, cultural, environmental and economic issues. Films range from internationally acclaimed films about human survival and food security, to Canadian-made films about threatened wild salmon stocks and urban rivers. Each film is followed by a panel discussion featuring local experts who provide local context and stimulate discussion about local sustainability issues. The intention of the festival is actual behaviour change and nothing inspires like film. “The topics are very relevant, and close to home,” says Kamloops and Vernon event organizer Marcia Dick. “Each of the films carries a meaningful message and in my case, has resulted in changed behaviour. I ride my bike as much as possible, hang-dry my clothes, compost, eat organic food, refuse to buy farmed salmon and continually look for new ways to lessen my impact on our planet’s resources.” Catch some flicks at the Art Gallery on the 17 and Yacht Club on 18 and 19. The films are free but a donation suggestion of $5 would be much appreciated. For more info, visit freshoutlookfoundation.org/events/reel-change-sustainability-film-festival.


BUSINESS PROFILE North Shore echo October 17, 2013 n 5

A unique shopping experience catered to you If you are a woman who enjoys the finer things in life, you will fall in love with the Look Boutique. This comfortable little shop offers designer clothing to mature women at great prices. You will always find a great deal on designs by Joseph Ribkoff, Simon Chang, Stella Carakasi, Color Me Cotton, Soya Concept, Yoga Jeans and Cativa, Dolce Vita, to name a few. You can also splurge on the vast selection of boots and shoes by Art, Neosen, Trotter, Cloud and Marc. Of course you can’t forget accessories like scarves and jewelry to really polish off the look you are creating. The Look Boutique has been in Kamloops for almost a decade providing high quality clothing for women. Sharlene Patko has owned the boutique for four and a half years and has loved every minute of it. “We have changed it up in the last few years with more of a focus on Canadian designers; we are at 40 per cent right now. We also have many items that are also manufactured in Canada, which is harder to find,” says Sharlene about her commitment to support as many Canadian companies as she can. What makes the Look Boutique stand out from other stores in Kamloops’ downtown core is they serve women 40 years-old and up. “We dress mature women who want to have fun,” comments Sharlene about her business model. “We purchase items that won’t cling too tight, dresses that have a classic length for mature woman and we are the Kamloops supplier of Yoga Jeans.” Jeans have a reputation of making a shopping experience go from good to bad. The process of trying on over 20 pairs to find the one that sort of fits can leave you pulling out your hair. Yoga Jeans have eliminated this horrible experience! If you are wondering what the heck are Yoga Jeans, they are the most awesome pants ever. “They are amazing!” shares an excited Sharlene. “Yoga Jeans are Canadian made in Montréal and are a memory denim which holds its shape. Many stretch jeans will bag out but not Yoga Jeans. You can even do yoga in them and they fit every body type.” The Yoga Jean is the perfect example of why the Look Boutique offers a unique shopping experience. The ladies who work at the shop know how to fit different body shapes. They also know their product inside and out. “We strive to send our customers out looking great, feeling great and in the perfect outfit. This is a full serve store,” proudly says Sharlene about the customer service they provide the women of Kamloops. Sharlene’s favorite part about owning the Look

Girls just want to have fun at Look Boutique and owner Sharlene Patko does her best to make it happen.

Boutique and helping women buy clothes is the experience of shopping. “When women are buying new clothes they are having fun, I get the privilege of having fun with them,” comments Sharlene. The Look Boutique is prepared for the fall/winter months. You will exclusively find boot kits where you can take an existing boot you already own and make it into something different. They also have leggings from Spain which pair nicely with any boots. When it comes to sales and promotions, Sharlene always has something going on. “Our customers that want to get onto our email will receive a monthly promotion. This allows us to provide gifts to our loyal customers,” says Sharlene. To sign up, just give the ladies at the counter your name and email and you will be added to the monthly email list. Facebook is also a good way to keep in touch with the promotions going on at the boutique. If you love soft materials, rich colours and unique accessories, the Look Boutique on 4th Avenue is the shop for you. Sharlene, Annie and Susan enjoy providing the mature women of Kamloops with high quality and fun designer clothing. Sharlene gives special attention to the fact that it is these women who are also providing her shop a service. “I’m extremely thankful for the support we get here in Kamloops and I try to never take it for granted,” comments Sharlene.

Hunters take instructions

Josh and Olly are hunters and they are dragging their dead deer back to their truck after a successful expedition. As they go they meet another hunter, who is pulling his deer along too, who shouts to them both, “Oiga! I don’t want to tell you how to do something ... but I can tell you that it’s much easier if you drag the deer in the other direction. Then the antlers won’t dig into the ground.” The third hunter leaves and Josh and Olly decide to try to do exactly what he has suggested. Some considerable time later Josh says, “You know, Olly, that man was right. This is an awful lot easier!” “Yep, Josh, but we’re getting farther from the truck,” moans Olly.

I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing ‘fairly well’ for my age as I just turned 62. A little concerned about that comment, I couldn’t resist asking him, “Do you think I’ll live to be 80?” The doctor responded by asking, “Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?” “Oh no,” I replied . . .”I’m not doing drugs, either!” Then he asked, “Do you eat

rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?” I said, “Not much since my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!” “Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?” “No, I don’t.” I said. He asked, “Do you gamble, go on vacations or have a lot of sex?” “No.” I said. He looked at me and said, “Then, why do you care to live that old?”

Your Horoscope VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23) Try not to allow your partner to lead you astray or upset your routine. Social activity should be conducive to finding love. Focus on moneymaking matters; stay away from emotional disputes. LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) You may find yourself in an emotional fix if you interfere in other people’s problems. Changes regarding your career direction will payoff handsomely. Curb your bad habits and compromise if your partner gives you an ultimatum. You will gain knowledge through adventure. SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) Others may want to steal your thunder when they realize your ideas are pretty solid. The locks, stove, gas or electric wires may not be secure. Don’t get upset about situations you cannot change. Don’t overlook that fact that someone you care about may be hiding something. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) Take that long overdue vacation if you can. Get friends to help you with the preparations. Do your best, but don’t make too many promises or you may exhaust yourself. Your mate may be distressed if you refuse to make a commitment CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan. 20) Your ideas may be good, but they aren’t necessarily right for everyone. Look into some personal changes. Arguments will flare up if you get backed into an emotional corner. Think of starting a new business or emotional partnership. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) Offer consolation, but don’t give them any direction. You should get out and meet new people this week. Keep the promises you’ve made or you can expect to be in the doghouse. You don’t want to give anyone fuel for the fire. PISCES (Feb. 20-Mar. 20) Put your house in order and sort out your personal direction. Unique forms of entertainment could capture your attention and bring a romantic interest. Change your image with a new look in clothing, hairstyle and attitude. ARIES (Mar. 21- April 20) Take time to catch up on gossip; make plans for adventure travel. Your personal life will be under the gun and you may want to avoid the questions your lover is going to want to ask you. Uncertainties regarding relatives will make situations uncomfortable if you attend a family function. Opportunities to go out with colleagues will be in your best interest. TAURUS (Apr. 21- May 21) Don’t let your partner put you down. You can complete any projects efficiently if you put the effort in yourself. Take matters in hand when it comes to dealing with clients or colleagues. You’ll continue to make gains if you call people who can help you close the deal. GEMINI (May 22-June 21) You will enjoy socializing and unusual forms of entertainment. You may find that children are not as accepting as you have been. Only bite off what you can chew. One-sided relationships are likely. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Be careful when using machinery or electrical equipment. Your personal life will be under the gun and you may want to avoid the questions your lover is going to want to ask you. You’re ready to blow up and your stress level is in over drive. Discuss your findings behind closed doors with your boss LEO (July 23-Aug 22) New projects may lead you into a dead end. Get involved in groups that are creative in nature. Follow your desires and dreams. Your partner could make you angry if they steal your thunder or embarrass you in front of others. Horoscopes courtesy of astrologer Michael Thiessen.
