The beautiful thing about books is that you don't need to plug them in!  They are there, page after page, to take you away from your daily routine and whisk you off to some magical place, to encounter interesting characters, to learn about real-life history, biographies of famous people... Your children and grandchildren should be encouraged to read as often as possible, with a steady stream of new books given to them each month.


Whether you grew up with vinyl records, cassette tapes, or compact discs (CDs), these days the lasting music format is the CD.  Many people still have a vehicle with a CD player and have a CD player at home or at work.  Greatest hits from the world of Pop music, Rock music, Country music, Adult Alternative music...it's all hear for your enjoyment!


We all grew up with television.  After school, after supper, prime time, late night... There has been and still are tons of wonderful TV programmes for you to enjoy & savour.  From comedies to drama, mysteries to romance, every single DVD season offers some 20 or so shows.  Great shows made right here in Canada, or in Britain, or the US.


There's so much value in the many magazines that are published today.  They are topic-specific, so you can find magazines and learn more about just about anything: Horses, Boats, Cooking, Archaeology, Science, Astronomy, Cars, Trains, Ships, People, Farming, Air Forces, Geography, Current Affairs, Yoga, Health, Running, Cycling,...whew!!!


Your home, your office, your room...your walls.  They are just SO much better with art hanging on them.  And not just anything people call Art...try a one-of-a-kind piece of original Fine Art and see the difference!  Today's art often has finished edges and does not need the expense of framing in order to hang it on your wall. And did you know that original Fine Art goes up in value over time. So why not find an artist you like and start collecting his or her work? Great to look at and possibly a great investment.


There was a time when many boys would start building models at home...leading to careers in the navy, army, air force, trucking, working on trains.  They also are great for the mechanically inclined person who is intrigued by all of the bits and pieces that go into making something big, mechanical and moving.

Building plastic models will provide hours of fun.  There is also the decorative aspect, painting them and applying decals to give them that realistic look!


While creating your own art is not everyone's "cup of tea", for the creative soul they cannot live each day without either creating their own work or studying someone else's.  Art is inspiring!  It lifts one's soul.  Start off with some drawing (sketch pads, pencils, erasers, charcoal or pastels even) and then move up to watercolour or acrylic painting on special paper or canvas board or panels.


Puzzle making is all about perseverance...mystery...close examination...logic... and at the end you have a lovely piece of art which can be framed and then hung on a wall of your home.  Cheap puzzles produce cheap-looking end-products, whereas higher-end puzzles are marvellous pieces of art created by highly talented artists.


Despite the wonders of modern technology, it does't always work.  And if your phone's battery is dead, low or plain finicky...you may not be able to rely on that GPS smart phone app.  Sometimes those apps mess up and send you in the wrong direction.  PAPER MAPS and MAP BOOKS are amazing ways to learn and find your way around, all the while being able to be "off the grid".

What residents of Strathroy are saying:

I make sure to stop by at least once or twice a week, the staff are great to talk to and are always keen to make special orders for me. This is the only place in Strathroy where I can find all my favourite TV shows, as well as some cool retro CDs.

What residents of London are saying:

BANNER Land! has so much to offer everyone!  There's lots of great ideas for myself...but even if I'm not buying for myself, this store has something for everyone's birthday and Christmas gifts. Lots of ideas to get people away from their computer & phone screens!  And for everyone self-isolating with COVID-19...amazing ideas to keep us busy & happy in our own home.
