Our main store has an interesting history. It was once part of a resort lodge complex in Algonquin Park near Source Lake, built in 1947. After a fire destroyed much of the Glen Donald Lodge, this building was spared and relocated to 207 Marsh Street, in Clarksburg in 1954. It then served as the Post Office for many decades. The high arched beam ceiling is worth a visit on its’ own.
We recently added additional space for our wares, in a 19th Century barn, located in the Municipal Parking Lot in Thornbury, directly behind The Diamond Studio.
We are right next to the walkway that runs from the Hester Street parking lot through to Bruce Street.
Right now with lockdown, we are open by appointment only, but we expect to be back at both spots very soon.
Our specialty is Canadian antiques and historical Canadian art. Our store is full of rare finely made pieces with interesting histories.
We also sell folkart, Inuit Art, sterling silver, vintage posters from the wars and from travel, antique Steiff Teddy Bears, and architectural salvage.
Our one exception to antique art is the brilliant photographic art of our good friend Blair Locke. Blair’s Georgian Bay and Beaver Valley Landscapes are special additions to any style of decor. They are also beautiful reminders of what you are missing, viewed on the walls of your city homes.
If you are looking to sell, we can offer advice on values and how best to market your treasures. For special estates we can hold an advertised sale right at your home.
Please take a look at the video on our website. Then, if we can be of service, please give us a call.
