Blemora Heritage Antiques

Sonja Morawetz and Steven Blevins

Leaving their city careers behind, Steven and Sonja made their new permanent home in Muskoka, Ontario in 1996. In 1997 they started up their new business as antique dealers, initially specializing in country formal Canadiana furniture along with decorative & folk arts. Around 2010, the focus of business shifted more towards fine art, and original folk art with a heavy emphasis on Native materials, in particular the Canadian Maritimes & Northeast American. They are members of CADA (Canadian Antique Dealers Association), with Steven also an active member of ATADA ( American Tribal Art Dealers Association ), CSDA ( Canadian Society of Decorative Arts ) and CPA ( Canadian Professional Appraisers ). Business is conducted through live shows, on_line virtual shows, and by appointment at our home in Muskoka.
