What inspired you to start your business?

After purchasing a historic house Paul started buying antiques and then the collection got out of hand so a store became the next step!  Paul is a woodworker who appreciates the craftsmanship of antique and vintage furniture and has loved antiques since he was a boy growing up in Newfoundland.

What is your business philosophy?

Recycling at its Finest! Re-loving real wood furniture that was crafted with care. Antiques are a ‘Green’ business, everything is recycled. Instead of buying new, customers save money by purchasing quality, functional and affordable antique and vintage furniture and collectables.

What is the secret to your success?

All the furniture in the store has been professionally restored, refreshed, refinished and polished by Paul before it is offered for sale, so customers can be assured of the lasting quality of every piece.
