Introducing – Annie Sloan CHALK PAINT!

      We are over the moon excited to incorporate this new line of paint & supplies into what we currently offer at the shop, and we look forward to helping our customers (you!) take your DIY furniture refinishing projects to a whole new level using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™.     We have been using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ in our workshop over the past year, experimenting with different techniques and colours on furniture pieces we’ve refinished for sale in the shop.  We have found the paint and waxes really nice to work with and very versatile.  The colour palette is beautiful and this has become our go-to product choice...

Crisp mornings, cool nights, turning leaves and already we are wanting to spend time snuggled up under warm covers. So, as the summer comes to an end we are happy to tell you …that we have decided to take another jump. We will keep the Tin Barn Market right here, in our cozy space in Almonte, all the way thru to the end of December. WE’RE STAYING! …for a little longer anyways.

Getting Ready for Pretty Summer Nights!

Summer Camp – GRAND OPENING!

For those of you who don’t know yet… we have found the perfect place to call home for the ENTIRE summer! We are camping out just 2 doors away from our winter pop-up shop on the main street of Almonte. Our new address: 73 Little Bridge street. If you’ve never been, Almonte is just a half hour drive from Ottawa. This hip little town with friendly folk, good food and funky shops just keeps drawing us back into its charm and positive energy. But here’s the best part – we are tucking in right next to Baker Bob, the longstanding Hometown Bakery. Yes, that’s right, this means the shop always smells a-m-a-z-i-n-g, and 2, we have direct...
