Oh, the shows! If you think these are all about Grandma’s china and big furniture, you are mistaken. There are a variety of a shows offering a wonderful mix of historically significant pieces to not-so-curated treasures.
There are several shows we enjoy selling at.

This fabulous outdoor show is held twice a year featuring hundreds of vendors.
This is Ontario’s biggest waterfront festival with live music, midway, antique dealers and artisans. It’s typically held on the long weekend in August. We have a large booth in the Optimist Club’s Antique Tent.
