Still OPEN for business!

Our 50% OFF EVERYTHING SALE continues until our property sells.

Hopefully, someone will come along soon and fall in love with our lovely 5200+ sq. ft. building. It’s a great place to live and work plus have additional rental income. We have been here 33 years and love it. But we are past retirement age plus Peter’s health is not good. Right now his cancer is “stable” ie. not spreading more. That is thanks to potent chemotherapy (he is in his 18th round as of Dec. 1, 2019). It is time for us to move on….

We continue to replenish stock in our store on almost a daily basis. Lots and lots to see! Everything from furniture to knick-knacks that would make interesting Christmas gifts.

Do drop by…. we are open Wednesday to Sunday 11 am – 5 pm. Mondays and Tuesdays by chance or appointment.

Phone number 519 856 4683.

If you wish to view our building on-line just type in the address:

132 Main Street South Rockwood Ontario

and the real estate listing will come up. Our real estate agent is John Gaida phone number 1 647 680 2145. A great guy!

Our property is for sale as we downsize and partially retire due to age and health concerns.

This CLOSING SALE is for real. (Last year we were closing in order to pursue an online auction business which proved too complicated for our aged brains.)

We are, however, continuing in the antique business at our Market Road Antiques location in St. Jacobs, that only requires our attention 2-3 days per month.

The CLOSING SALE in the Rockwood Second Hand SHOP will carry on until the building is sold and we have to move. Until that time inventory will be replenished regularly from “new finds” and our other location. Also, we shall be adding interesting items from our personal collections as well as tools, furnishings and other bits and pieces as we downsize.

We are open Wednesday to Sunday 11-5. Mondays and Tuesdays by chance or appointment.

2600 sq ft of REALLY COOL STUFF! We have furniture, antiques, decor, LPs, books, vintage items and collectibles, household, Hawaiian shirts, vintage wool blankets, artworks, all sorts of treasures and trash, etc., etc.

Phone no.: 519 856 4683

Happy 2019!

Just a note to let you know that our hours are:

Tuesday….OPEN by chance, Wednesday to Saturday OPEN 11-5 But if you wish to check with us if we are open, don’t hesitate to call: 519 856 4683. Sometimes we do have to close because of health issues…

Please do drop by and check out our selection of “Really Cool Stuff”! Just recently we put out a lovely “Cirque du Soleil” T-shirt. Really cool! Also, we now carry vintage LPs – from hard rock to easy listening. And to accompany those we have a selection of rock ‘n roll T-shirts, as well as Hawaiian shirts in all sizes.

If you wish to donate items for the store we would be most grateful. Remember, we are a struggling local business and would appreciate all the help we can get to remain open. As well, if you have any extra bags..plastic, etc. we would love to take them off your hands.

A note about Peter’s health…. his chemotherapy dose was increased in December since the metastasized tumours in his lungs and pancreas were increasing in size again. Hopefully this new regimen will keep them under control…we find out January 21st. However, it has taken a toll on him…increased fatigue, pain and a myriad of other side effects. However, he will try to be in the store now and then when he is not resting….

Please do drop by for a browse now and then; and to say “hello”. It does get lonely sometimes in the winter…..

STORE REOPENING SALE! ! Thursday, October 11 to Saturday, October 20

Well, circumstances have changed for us. And we have decided to reopen our store. I am sure many of our valued customers will be happy!

After a lot of thought, we decided at this stage of our lives it was silly to start a new business (online auctions) with all its attendant complexities, etc. And to stick with what we know best.

The past couple of weeks have been a flurry of activity as we unpacked vast amounts of merchandise that was in storage and restocked the store. There is lots of new stuff (we are always looking for new items, since we do have another location in Market Road Antiques in St. Jacobs).

We are opening Thursday, October 11 with a 50 % off EVERYTHING SALE. We shall be open every day during the sale except Tuesday, October 16 (when Peter has an appointment at the cancer centre in Hamilton). Store hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

So, please do drop by and visit us and let us become reacquainted!! Phone us with any questions at 519 856 4683.

Remember, we only take cash or cheques!
