ANTIQUES IDENTIFICATION CLINIC – NEW FEATURE!

Janet Carlile at work

Janet Carlile at work

A Very Popular feature: Antiques ID clinic with Janet Carlile, Ottawa based Antiques Appraiser

Treasure or trash? Bring your treasures and heirlooms – Janet, guest appraiser on CBC Antiques Roadshow, will examine them and tell you the true story on what you have.

On all day Sunday, July 30, in the Banquet Hall.

A fascinating aspect of keeping family heirlooms is the fact that they may have monetary value far beyond what their owners can imagine. Find out more about your own heirlooms at the Orillia show, July 30.

The Identification clinic will feature Janet Carlile, CPA, an independent and accredited antiques valuer and appraiser with 30 years International experience gained with major auction houses both in Europe and North America. In addition to her appraisal work Janet also writes and lectures. She wrote a popular syndicated Antiques column for the Southam Newspaper Group for over 4 years and has contributed to magazines including the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts journal The Bulletin. She has appeared as an expert appraiser on the CBC’ s Canadian Antiques Roadshow. Janet has also been a guest on the lunchtime CBC program Ontario Today to answer listeners’ questions about antiques during a phone in.

How it works:

    • Bring your items for appraisal. You may bring as many items as you wish.
    • When you arrive, go directly to the appraisal table in the Banquet Hall and get yourself a number. From this number you will be able to approximate your appointment time, then go and have fun searching the rest of the show and enjoy the many wonderful things on offer. If you miss your turn you will be inserted and accommodated at the next number in line. The Clinic operates Sunday from 8am until 4pm.
    • At your appointed time, meet with the expert and show her your treasures.
    • Fees: $15 per item.



Fabulous food choices at the show

Ficklewood Farm
Ron Cascone and his daughter Lori McClelland believe in taking farm to table as literally as possible.

They begin by raising and breeding purebred Tamworth pigs IMG_0736 on Ron’s 100 acre hobby farm just outside Orillia, ON. Then they have it butchered by Sprucedale Meats. Then Lori takes it to the bakery she owns with her sister and lovingly turns the tender, succulent meat into a variety of delicious treats which they serve on their amazing, freshly-baked buns.

Whether Lori decides on Pulled Pork, Meatballs on a Bun, Asian Meatballs with Rice Salad or Pork Braised with Apples and Cider, everything is made from scratch in the bakery’s inspected and certified kitchen.

The Ficklewood Breakfast Sandwich starts with a cheddar bun, two farm fresh eggs, Ficklewood Ham, and Lori’s delicious Sweet Chili Sauce. What a way to start the day!

Participating dealers send us photos of their stock, including things they may be bringing to the show. We post their photos in this gallery.



Mrs. Huizenga, Toronto
Mrs.Huizenga is Catherine Huizenga and Dave Amer. Catherine’s childhood playroom was an antique shop in her grandparents’ garage. Dave grew up the son of a picker. We love our shop, and never tire of hearing how much visitors love it too!

We’re not purists, we hunt for style. Many of our treasures are antique and have proven their mettle by surviving countless decades. Their quality and detail will survive us all without a doubt!

Our 4500 square foot shop on Roncesvalles is a cakewalk through eras and styles that guarantees something for everyone.

We have a soft spot for cottage furniture for the big city, character pieces you can add to your home palette to tell the story of who you are and what you love.

This is our first offsite antique show. We are proud to present a sampling of our shop’s stock: from Victorian perfume bottles and bud vases to folk art to midcentury studio pottery and vintage movie posters. A little taste for everyone.

Stop by and see us July 24 in Orillia or any old time at 28 Roncesvalles at Queen West in Toronto….

Leona and Jerry Milne, Root Cellar Antiques, Port Dover
Leona and Jerry bring unusual andcast panels 1 unexpected to most shows they do. Last year at Orillia they sold a fabulous tabernacle which they found down along the Lake Erie shore.

This year Leona reports: “I recently found a pair of old cast iron mouldings, two figures which appear to be dancers. Each moulding weighs about 12 pounds and measure 6” x 29-3/4”. GREAT PATINA. They most likely were installed as accents to a fireplace, or wall panel.”



Ben Lennox, Waterloo
“Below is a small sample of items I plan on bringing to the show. I have some excellent game boards, advertising, art and my usual mish mash of quality fresh finds.

Kenneth J Lane, Dior, Fendi, Givenchy, are just some of the fashions houses represented in our showcases. In addition we were also fortunate enough to purchase elegant Sterling silver jewellery set with semi precious stones (Peruvian opals, White Topaz). And since costume jewellery is supposed to be fun, we will have a superb selection of vintage costume pieces for $ 10 each, as well as clip on and screw back earrings for $ 5.00 a pair. Along with our Sherman, we have a selection of fine vintage Costume jewellery. We look forward to seeing you at the show.”

Big Chenille Vintage Textiles, Karen Poce, Chesley

I’m a ‘Picker’ and proud of it, picker of second hand textiles, that is. Been picking for many years and I guess you could say I’m addicted, but in a good way. I love diving into a mountain of polyester to grab a bit of colored fabric that could be a treasure from our past and every now and then something really fantastic gets slowly pulled out.

My latest treasure is a Red and White Coverlet from the late 1800′s, yup that’s what you read, hard to believe pieces like this are still out there.

If you don’t know about Redwork Quilts let me give you a brief history. This was a type of needlework popular during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It uses patterns that were sourced thru catalog offers and period advertisements like the ‘Ladies Home Journal’. Iron-on transfers or perforated patterns were bought and some women hand traced their own images. Colourfast Red Turkey cotton floss was most commonly used for the needlepoint work. The coverlet I discovered has 72 – 8″ x 9″ blocks with 2″ turkey red sashing between the blocks.

While researching the transfers I realized the date and found a set of patterns – #10923 that sold for 30 cents. The pictures show the set, boy did these images stand out! 4 Gnomes carrying, a Toadstool, a Pigshead, a Crayfish and a Sausage, won’t find this one at Walmart!!!

Make sure you find me inside the banquet hall along with all my textiles, vintage and retro.

Adrian Tinline Antiques, Bowmanville
“I think of my business as your one stop shop for early Canadiana Antiques, specializing in early Canadian painted furniture with country accents to accessorize your home or business. A second generation Antiquer with a life time of experience in the trade, if I don’t have what you are looking for I am more than happy to point you in the right direction. Remembering your cultural heritage is important to who we are as Canadians, owning a piece of your material heritage is an important way to keep those memories alive! The craftsmanship involved cannot be compared to todays standard by far, so ask your self the next time you head out to the big box stores whether or not you want an investment or a piece that will be at the curb in a few years? Do yourself a favour and come to an Antique Show instead.

Some of the things you might find in my booth: cupboards, chest of drawers, lamp tables, blanket boxes, harvest tables, chairs, shelves,IMG_3819 benches, stripped or in original surface, folk art, wood carvings, early iron, pottery, decoys, objects of art and many more. Feel free to follow me on Facebook or Instagram – Adrian Tinline Antiques or become a member of one of the leading groups for primitives, folkart and Canadiana on Facebook – Canadiana Antiques”





Carol Telfer Antiques, Gagetown, NB
Carol is perhaps Canada’s leading dealer in early Canadian textiles – quilts, hooked rugs and the like. She sent photos of some great pieces that will be coming with her to Orillia.

Sonja Morawetz and Steven Blevins, Blemora Heritage, Utterson, ON
“We are sending to you some photos of the pieces we plan to bring with us to the Orillia Summer Show, 2015. Looking forward to participating!”

“As far as a story goes on any of the pieces, I will relate something about the two Native purses pictured.

I’ll refer to the one on the leftImage 87 with a fine blue, white and red embroidered moose hair on black Native tanned hide as ‘Huron’ and the one on the right with the multiple coloured voluptuous bead-work as ‘Maliseet’. The Huron purse dates from the 18th C and was constructed by the Huron under the direction of the Catholic nuns. The Maliseet purse was constructed by the Maliseet of New Brunswick in the early to mid 19th C.

What is the story? Both were made similar to European material traditions and adapted in the Native manner. Instead of using expensive silk on the Huron purse, they dyed and embroidered moose hair onto superior Native tanned moose hide. On the Maliseet purse instead of using traditional dyed porcupine quills, the Maliseet used the much more diversified coloured glass beads available from the Venetian factories. The Native people were ingenious at doing what the European wanted but in the their own way. In doing so they created a unique art form which is unsurpassed in its beauty and creativity. Even though the European did not hold the Native in high regard, by making these demands for trade both sides inadvertently created a unique art form avidly collected and valued today.

There is one significant irony here about the Huron purse. It’s actually not a purse but is a salvage from a pair of moccasins! It was obviously regarded as an art treasure with enough merit eventually to be converted into a purse when the rest of the moccasins had worn out. For a proper and thorough discussion on this topic related to the Iroquois, Gerry Biron’s book, “A Cherished Curiosity” is worth a read. There are many other titles on this topic about the adaptive qualities of Native peoples around the world and the unique art forms produced that are worth looking into as well.

Dusty Chittenden, Ontario Provincial Pickers, Waubaushene
“I’ve always loved things that are built with beauty and solid craftsmanship. If they happen to be useful, that’s a bonus. Quality antiques and vintage pieces are what I have a passion for, along with classic and collector cars.
After many years as a home designer and builder, I decided to forego the building and devote more time to collecting fine antiques. This led to me having an overabundance of antiques and so a small store was added to my home in Oro-Medonte. Now the store is full along with a double garage and two smaller storage areas.
I found that there was a need for “project” furniture and I have collected some very nice pieces which deserve to be refurbished. Clients can save a great deal and refinish them themselves.
While searching for a name for the business, I jokingly called it Ontario Provincial Pickers (OPP) Everyone that I met, including members of various police forces, thought that it was a great name and so it has come to be. Our store is on the 9th line of Oro-Medonte, just south of Vasey Rd. (#23) We are open by chance or by appointment.

Heather and Warren Breedon, Big W and little h, New Lowell
Our shop began as a weekend hobby.Big W little h June 2016
Heather enjoyed collecting and re-purposing antique and vintage items as decorating pieces in her gardens and soon they took over her house. This hobby soon turned into a passion for Warren and Heather which lead to the creation of Big W and little h Antiques and Collectibles and their hopes to share these unique items with others.

While you will find a wide array of items, they have a soft spot for vintage and antique farming pieces.

Berna Aricibasi, Fistique, Toronto
“Tortoise Shell was first used in the Far East. Portuguese sailors introduced tortoise shell to European artists in the 15th century. It was used in furniture decorations in the period of the French King Louis XIV.

The Ottoman Empire’s favorite place to use tortoise shell was in mosques’ wooden part like windows & doors with other precious materials like ivory, mother of pearl, bones. Besides, small items were made by tortoise shell i.e. plates, spoons, cups, combs etc.

This precious spoon’s handle is made of mother of pearl & decorated by Mediterranean red coral at the bottom.

The silver knitted shawl belonged to my great grandmother who was forced to immigrate from her home land Macedonia in 1st World War. It was her bridal piece knitted by silver. Truly remarkable antique piece.

I will be featuring a pink and white transfer ware Adams dishes “English Scenic”; Johnson Bros. “Friendly Village” and some serving items in the Evesham and Portmeiron Royal Worcestor line of dishes. Will be featuring an array of vintage teapots, Shelley teacups and more. Also acquired some character Royal Doulton figures and lovely ladies too.”
