About Us

About Us

The road to Dockside was driven by the global pandemic that effected so many of us. After a long career in technical sales and marketing, I decided to follow my passion and The Dockside Store grew into the concept of curated gifts and items for cottage and lakeside living.  With loads of help from friends and family along the way, the Dockside vision of bringing beautiful and useful things to you for lakeside living was born.

The Vision

Dockside believes in the value of spending quality time with friends and family. Whether you are at the cottage, camping at a public campsite or simply hanging in your backyard or park.  In our modern world, there is so much distracting us from the beauty of nature. We all need connection with others and the natural world around us. We are so fortunate in Canada to have such a wealth of natural beauty and I want to reflect that in the items I offer and hope you purchase with purpose.  Dockside wants to be your one-stop shop for everything related to your cottage or lake home.

“I invite you to join me in this journey and share in my passion of the great outdoors and Dockside Living."

Thank you for joining me on this journey.
