Welcome to the Olde Curiosity Shoppe

When we participate in various shows and events, we like to have examples on hand of the type of work we can do for our customers. Over the course of the year, we gather interesting pieces (all in varying states of repair!) in auctions, estate sales, etc. We then restore and revive them, allowing us to put together an appealing booth at the show and present authentic samples of well restored antiques. We also purchase decorative items to “dress up” the booth so it looks like a living room, or parlour!

In order to keep the booth looking fresh, we frequently change the samples so we offer most of these items for sale. In case you have not had the opportunity to visit us at a show, or if you have missed any of the items we have offered for sale, we invite you to step in to the Olde Curiosity Shoppe and have a look.
The antique and collectible pieces listed below are all offered for sale. If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, or have any questions, please give us a call at 905-627-9272, or send an email to kieren@acaciarestorations.ca. You are welcome to make arrangements to come and see them in person. All prices quoted are Canadian funds. Applicable taxes will be added. Shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser.
