New Year - New Start

Lois Butler - Tuesday, January 05, 2016

Have you had enough of winter yet?  I know I have.  

During winter many of us tend to spend more time indoors browsing magazines and internet sites like Pinterest, resulting in a critical eye when it comes to our own home.  We feel the urge to refresh, redecorate, or declutter our living space.  As you are working towards simplifying and reordering your space, maybe you will find a few furniture pieces that you would like to sell.

From the start, our Consignment Service, has been a very successful venture. We have many satisfied buyers and sellers as quality pieces move from one home to another.  Right now we are particularly interested in smaller tables and storage pieces but we are still open to dining room sets and larger cabinets. These pieces are often sold just as they come into the store, but they are great candidates for "upstyling" and "repurposing"too.  

      Upstyling: Paint Techniques           Repurposing: Kitchen to Entry Way

Just send pictures of your items to  Please don't automatically decide that "they won't want this".  Just send your pictures and we will let you know what we are able to take.

This past year has been an interesting journey for us as we have expanded the scope of our business to include furniture consignment, custom woodwork, furniture transformations through painting techniques, and now painting classes (class schedule soon to be published).  All of these additions have been the result of our improved and enlarged location at 294 Lakeshore.  So feel free to come and browse anytime as stock rotates quickly and the some items hardly make it to the showroom before a very speedy exit transpires.  

I'll end with a sample gallery of consignment, created, and transformed furniture that has passed through our doors.

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year and good luck with your decorating plans!


One of a Kind Table Sets the Trend

Lois Butler - Monday, August 26, 2013
At Lois Butler's we have started to carry wonderful one-of-a-kind pieces made by a local artisan. He uses mostly reclaimed wood, but when necessary some new wood is used.  The table shown, with its rustic grey finish, is not only an example of his work, but it is right on trend in decor.  
When you purchase a one-of-a-kind piece you give your home a "look" different from your friends and neighbours while supporting 2 local businesses (the artisan and the small independent retailer). 

A lucky person  bought this table yesterday, so if you were considering it, so sorry, it's SOLD!.  However, we are always receiving new pieces.  Actually, we are presently restocking for the fall season so come on in and let us know what you think.  We are open today from 12 - 4:00pm. Hope to see you there.
