Best Comics Store – Gold Winner – Cape & Cowl Comics & Collectibles

Goodness gracious! A heartfelt burst of gratitude to you all! 🥇

Words really can’t totally express what this means to me, but I’ll sure try! 💙💚💛💙💚💛 Many incredible milestones have happened during this whirlwind five years so far, and any entrepreneur and small business owner knows it’s no easy task taking on such an endeavor, but my legacy is what I’ve been able to do for my community, and it is my honour to continue to do that. You can be sure as all heck things won’t stop here! I have so many fun ideas for the years to come, just you wait and see!
We move soon to 622 Sackville Drive just by the Sackville library, but for one last hurrah at 536, come take part and visit our popular craft fair and give some local artists a holiday boost while getting your yuletide shopping wrapped up! See you Dec 21/22!”

Halifax-area comic shop offering space for youth counselling
