Friday afternoon (Aug. 15th) and Saturday Aug. 16, and maybe Sunday (depending on weather – give us a call 519 856 4683) we are having a large garage sale at “give-away” prices.
And now (August 11), we just returned from Ottawa with a load of amazing stuff (actually our reason for going was for a wedding),
Well, we returned (July 28) from Manitoulin to some rotten news. Peter has just been diagnosed with a 0.6 cm cancerous tumour in his upper left lung. On the 18th of August we go to the cancer hospital to find out what will be done. Hopefully it will just be cut out and that’s that (this is Peter’s 2nd cancer event – last year they removed a 10.5 cm tumour plus his left kidney).
Please come to our garage sale and our store…….
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.
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!
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!
