We are so lucky at Consignment Canada and in this business to meet so many interesting people – consignors, customers, trade and film customers alike.
One of our trade customers, a Wednesday morning regular was Derek Hodge.
Derek would come in first thing on a Wednesday morning to find whatever treasure would work for him in his own business, Hodge-Podge Collectables. Mid-Century modern was Derek’s speciality and boy did Derek ever know his stuff. But we think one of the main things that brought Derek into Consignment Canada most Wednesdays was to visit Pepper, Carly’s corgi and the store meet and greet dog. Derek loved Pepper and she in turn looked forward to the almost weekly treat and fuss Derek made of her. She always knew Derek was in the store as she barked excitedly before he even reached her. Sadly Derek passed away suddenly in North Vancouver on August 20th. So many of us will miss him dearly, but Wednesday mornings for Pepper will never be the same. RIP Derek.
