David and Kathy Learn, Old Highway 3 Antiques, Aylmer, ON - Fall only “Although we usually have quite a mix of “whatever-we-come-across” items, we try to stay small and focus on interesting, unusual, hard-to-find items and ephemera (paper, books and magazines, photos, hats, linens, etc.). We also can’t seem to resist flower frogs and are amassing quite a collection!”

Peter Land and Wayne Ross, Land and Ross Antiques, Shakespeare, ON “As our customers know, we like furniture, particularly from Western Ontario. But we also have in our shop a very good range of smalls and accessories.” One could add that they really like big furniture – 12 foot store counters, 8 and 10 foot tables, tall cupboards, and so on.
