Christmas Will Be Here Soon!

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”.

Summer and “Hawaiian Shirt” Time is fast approaching!

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!

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.

Cool Merchandise!

We have been busybees! We have lots and lots of “new” items in the store. And there is a lot of discounted stuff to view (we are getting overcrowded!). Great furniture for all those special places in your home (all quality solid wood – none of that “assemble yourself and then “break apart” modern stuff).
And we have the greatest authentic”RETRO” Diner booth! This one really makes a statement!

Our Stuff

We carry a wide range of second-hand merchandise, all at the most reasonable prices, in fact we’re like one big garage sale under a roof, with many items for less than you would even see at garage sales- everything from hundreds of earrings (at 50 cents a pair) to elegant antique furniture! We try to carry only SOLID WOOD furniture (pressboard, “engineered wood” rarely sneaks into the store). So, folks, it’s quality but at thrifty prices! Also, we have a tendency towards the odd and bizarre…..we have a stuffed iguana, a Victorian elephant leg table, military items like “trench art”, unusual sculptures, etc. And then we do have the usual, handy things – whether it’s a basket or a little stand to fit into a nook or even a Hallowe’en costume. You never know what you’ll find here. And we add new things every day!
