Barriefield Antiques, Kingston Ontario

We've been to this Antique store before, and loved it. This month we arrived on a Friday only to find it closed - open only on weekends. As we peered through the front window, the owner drove by and stopped to open for us. So we had the store to ourselves for over an hour.

It's a large building chock full of nicely displayed good quality pieces. Lots of furniture, tins, and too many eclectic items to list! The owner's father loves scales so there are always quite a few for Brian and I to drool over. He also picks up railroad lamps and other items so a railroad buff like Brian's father would love it there. The owner herself is a cash register collector so she has some nice pieces available.

We didn't buy anything this trip but we do have our eye on two scales...

Wendy May's Antiques

Wendy May's Antiques is a great little antique store in Kingston. It has lots of great stuff, nicely displayed, and fairly priced. The owners are very friendly and will give better prices.

Their blurb says "china, furniture, glass, pottery, pictures, mirrors, jewellery, interesting and pretty things". I found and bought a great antique coffee grinder, which Wendy May marked down for me when I showed her the book price. She sold it for less than I offered to pay - go figure!

I also found two great walking sticks, a gorgeous art deco bracelet and an art deco armoire at reasonable prices. Wendy May sold them all at less than sticker price and I was very pleased.

We went back a second day and Wendy's husband offered us fresh tea! 979 Sydenham Rd, Kingston Ontario is where you need to look.
