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…..

Phone number: 519 856 4683
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!
Last chance for great bargains! THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY
The store closes permanently Saturday, July 21st.
Open 11 to 5 CASH or CHEQUES, only, please.
519 856 4683
Well, that time has come. Our store will close July 21st, 2018.
Why? We have been in business 32 years and it’s time to slow down. Being open 5 to 7 days a week has become a bit much, especially for Peter who is living with metastatic cancer (he is in his sixth round of chemotherapy). Vija’s health is also not top-notch. But we still will soldier on in this enjoyable business.
In late September, we shall be starting an on-line auction house out of our building, calling it:
MAIN STREET Online Auctions
Our own collections as well as consignments from clients will be featured. Our present premises will be the stage to come and view the items of the current auction a few days before the actual bidding starts on-line . Photographs and descriptions of everything will also appear on-line.
For now, all merchandise in the Second Hand Shop is 50% off the lowest marked price. Until closing. We are open every day 11 to 5 (unless we have medical appointments). It’s always good to phone ahead to make sure we are open 519 856 4683.
We are simply overstocked!! Hence we announce a 3 day CLEARANCE SALE!
Thursday, May 24 to Saturday, May 26. Open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Remember, we only take CASH and CHEQUES. NO Debit or Credit Cards.
The shop is brimming with lots and lots of new stock….something for everyone…from furniture to decor, antiques and collectibles, oddities, household items, Hawaiian shirts, stuffies, treasures and trash, etc., etc. ….. A maze of interesting stuff!
Our phone number: 519 856 4683
After our successful sale, we have been replenishing the store constantly with new items. More and more are put out every day! Tons of stuff yet to price and cram into one of our rooms…oh will it ever end? No…….
Come see us! You never know what you will find. We even have a “Cat in the Hat” plush figure! Tons of Hawaiian shirts. And the usual assortment of oddities, collectibles, decor, furniture, even a good selection of Pyrex and Tupperware, etc., etc.
Open Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 519 856 4683
It’s time for our annual March Sale again! It runs from Saturday, March 17 to Saturday, March 24 – 8 days. We are open every day during the sale from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Over 2000 sq. ft. – 5 large rooms – loaded with lots of cool stuff – from knick-knacks to practical items to antiques and primitives to oddities to Hawaiian shirts to good Retro stuff to quality furniture, etc., etc. There is something for everyone. The deals are unbelievable – 50% off everything…no exceptions!
CASH or CHEQUES only, please. NO Debit or Credit Cards.
We have lots of new stock…..items arriving daily. Where are we going to put them all?? !
Do drop by to say “hello”. You may even see Peter….he just underwent his second round of chemo and is tolerating it much better than the first time (due to a reduced dose). Just had a CT scan and we should have the results next Monday. Please join us in hoping for a positive outcome!
Open Tuesday to Saturday, 11 – 5, unless there is an emergency. Our phone no. is 519 856 4683.
Just a note that we shall reopen on Wednesday, January 3rd (not Tuesday, January 2nd) since Peter has an appointment at the Juravinski Cancer Centre in Hamilton on Tuesday to recommence his chemotherapy (after a pretty rough first 4 week session).
Christmas items are half-price. And we shall be adding new merchandise daily. Also, a lot of items are tagged with CLEARANCE prices to make way for new stuff. Please do visit us.
Regular hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m to 5 p.m., however it’s a good idea to phone and confirm since we are dealing with Peter’s medical issues, which sometimes can be unpredictable.
Our phone number: 519 856 4683.
Wishing everyone a fabulous 2018!
