We had an interesting trip to Prince Edward County and found some COOL STUFF!
However, the news closest to our hearts was that Peter saw the oncologist today and
the existing tumour in Peter’s left lung has increased by 2mm since March; the one hanging off his kidney has not changed. The great news is that no new tumours have popped up anywhere.
Peter sees the surgeon towards the end of July. Probably we’ll wait for another 4 months and then, possibly consider surgery if the tumour gets larger.
We shall be closed from Friday, July 1 to Tuesday, July 5. Taking a little vacation as well as enjoying our annual buying trip in Prince Edward County. Hopefully, we’ll come back with a load of more “Really Cool Stuff”!
On July 5, Peter meets with his oncologist to find out the results of his most recent CT scan – fingers crossed!
Well, summer has zoomed in very rapidly. And our shop is filling up with more and more interesting (and some “everyday” items)…… it’s hard to keep a handle on it all, actually! But we are trying our best! To get an idea of the essence of our shop (over 2000 sq. ft. – it looks deceptively small from the outside) we are posting the following slide show so kindly prepared by Shari Lovell, photograher
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
We are OPEN Tuesday (from about 2 p.m.), Wednesday – Saturday (11 a.m. – 5 p.m.). To make sure we are open, it is advisable to call ahead, just in case (we are dealing with various medical issues right now, so life is a bit complicated…)

We shall be closed from May 13 to May 24. Going for a much needed holiday to Manitoulin Island where we have a cabin on the shores of Lake Huron.
Needless to say, we shall always be on the lookout for new and interesting items to add to our shop – so check us out after we return!

Oh dear, our store is in chaos as we attempt to do inventory, add new and interesting merchandise and tidy and reorganize all at the same time! Please do come – lots of aisle spaces to meander.
Remember we have tons of great Hawaiian shirts for those winter getaways!
This week our hours are: Tuesday (11-5), Wednesday (1-5), Thursday, Friday & Saturday (11-5). CLOSED Sundays and Mondays.
TREASURES FOR EVERYONE!
(Always a good idea to call us at 519 856 4683 to confirm we are open – we have the odd medical emergency that arises.)
Need anything unusual? We are the place to check out! Our store is full of “Really Cool Stuff” and more comes in every day….we can hardly keep up with it all. For example, we just got a vintage (19th century) sleigh rug! AND a beautiful “campaign table” whose top (in 3 hinged sections) folds up into a long table (we have never seen anything like this before).
Of course, for you “RETRO fans” we have a good selection of teak furniture, lamps, etc. And lots of “Star Wars'” parapharnelia and other toys…… (The “Big Bang boys” would have a blast in our store!)
Our shop (over 2000 sq. ft. – 5 large “rooms”) is crammed full of merchandise – from antiques and collectibles to contemporary items. Everything from solid wood furniture to dozens and dozens of vintage Hawaiian shirts! And there is lots of Christmas stuff, as well.
And all at bargain prices! Come one, come all!
We are open Tuesday (from 2-5), Wednesday – Saturday (11-5).
(We apologize that lately our hours have been erratic (health issues, funerals….)
If you want to make sure we are OPEN, just give a shout at 519 856 4683. If you need something “after hours” don’t hesitate to call….we live just above the shop, and can run down anytime to let you have a “private viewing”.
Well, it’s been a long time since my last post…..YES WE ARE STILL IN BUSINESS! (And have been for the past 30 years!)
It has been suggested I should post more frequently. It certainly is a good idea, I guess. It’s just that we’re such “computer klutzes”!
Anyways, just to tell you that our store is OVERFLOWING with new and wonderful and interesting merchandise. Something for everyone, including a huge collection of wonderful colourful Hawaiian shirts in all sizes! Great for the summer season. New, they often retail for over $100! Ours are $24.95 to $29.95 (if you buy more than 2, we’ll give you a deal!); and yes, we try to stay away from those manufactured in China, except for the quality silk “Tommy Bahamas”.
In the near future we shall be having a giant GARAGE SALE at “give-away” prices -literally! (outside/inside our garge unit) – so keep an eye out for that, O.K?
Until next time, then! Have a great sunny week!
Our store is exploding with lots of new items – from furniture to tiny little things….we even have some really cool Hallowe’en costumes! Cool stuff, fabulous selection, great prices!
Come and browse…you’ll be amazed!
We’ve just returned from a massive buying trip in Prince Edward County. And we MEAN massive! We found a 150+ year old pine armoire; a rare child’s coffin (that was only used to display the deceased and/or to photograph them); and tons of interesting smaller items. One of our most successful buying trips ever!
It’s going to take weeks to sift through it all so we recommend you keep coming back over and over…..there will be new items out every day for months! At our usual thrifty prices!!
But we are also treating ouselves to time off – quite a bit this summer (I (Vija) really need it and Peter especially needs it because for months he has been doing the work of 2 people!
CLOSED: July 4 th and 5th
CLOSED: July 13th to 28th (Manitoulin Island here we come! We haven’t had the opportunity to make it out there, yet due to my health and pain issues. (I’m hoping to deal with those gently and without any stress)
CLOSED: August 8th and 9th (to attend a wedding in Ottawa), we hope.
CLOSED: August 24th to September 4th (Manitoulin again – I (Vija) really need the rest and also time to exercise gently to try and regain my health). We think, we are going. See above post.
