Cindy Toushan, Mount Elgin, ON

Our antiques are pieces of Canadiana collected over 50 years.   This is a private collection we have enjoyed in our home. We also had a booth in an antique market which we have closed as we have downsized.  Many of these pieces were found in Maritime Canada and Lanark County. We have always believed in retaining the original finish when possible or returning the item to the original finish. We would be happy to send additional photos if you are interested in an item. Covid protocols will be followed for pick up.
