Hey Corin! Looks like you'll be in London next week when I'm in TO, but I'll save a stamp and drop off my 4,000 or so CT #PaperNickels for safekeeping @TheCameronHouse http://www.dontspendithoney.com/#
Ava Scarlett had something to say about three things this Canadian Tire caper runs on, and has been generating ever since it started (those would be happiness, love, and good luck), and here are her words, verbatim: “Happiness comes from lots of love and and how about the good luck is you have to get some, and not be so impressed. And wash the dishes. And that’s it.”

This card arrived with Canadian Tire Money, no return address, no name, just those two words: Canadian Alchemy. This is just one of the many beautiful things Corin has received in the mail accompanied by CT bills.

A photo of the so-far collection (as of Feb 2012) at Erwin's Bakery in Kamploops, BC where the owners, Robyn and Shawn Haley, have instituted ‘Canadian Tire Tuesdays’, which means that on Tuesdays they’ve been accepting CT$ at par. How incredible is this?

Raghu Lokanathan (left) and Jonathan Byrd (centre) are two of the incredible artists whose songs are featured on the upcoming live double-album. Corin loves these guys and could talk about them endlessly. There he is, happily gazing upon Jonathan!

All that Canadian Tire money had to be counted, so Sandy McTyre brought with him an official Don't Spend It Honey accountant to do the job. The two nights combined brought in hundreds and hundreds of Canadian Tire money to go towards the Paper Nickels live double-album production costs. The event of the year- and it wasn't yet February!
