Wish we had shops like this up North!

We found this shop while driving through St. Jacobs and I fell in love! This place was huge and had every kind of antique or collectible you could ask for! Deco art, dishes, signs, furniture and so much more. Sadly  there weren't too many primitive booths. I swear that most of Canada has either skipped the whole primitive decor or it just hasn't caught on yet. The prim shops are hard to find and I even know a few that have closed up due to lack of sales.

 I would love nothing better than to take a great big truck and head to Ohio and fill it up!  Anyway, here are a few shots of the inside - I was too busy looking for treasures to take more photos. I always like to have Shelby with me when we go to places like this because she always points out the things I like that I sometimes overlook. She's got a great eye for cool and unique things as well.

Click on photos to enlarge!

This is the view walking through the front door. It's much bigger on the inside than it looks - there are about 4 or 5 rows like this!

I have a love for old washboards but I'm very thankful I don't have to use one!

Love these 2 photos and the old phone below.

Beautiful antique carriage and spinning wheel.

I wanted to buy everything in this booth but the prices were out of this world!

Hope your weekend is a good one!

  3. Hi Connie.. Lovely place to shop.. Great pics..
    I agree about Canadians not having a lot of prim shops...
    I do know of one opening in St. Martins in you ever come East?

  4. That looks like a WONDERFUL place to go!!! Reminds me of one of the craft malls I was in last fall in Ohio's Amish Country:)
