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!

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.

Happy February!

We have lots of new stock…..items arriving daily. Where are we going to put them all?? !

A Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year to All!

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!
