AUTUMN News

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. We’ve signed the lease, crossed our fingers, and have already begun to think about all the exciting new things we can bring in for the holidays and cooler months to come. We always like to know what special items you folks are searching for, or the kinds of things you would...

We’re letting the CAT OUTTA THE BAG!

You may have heard a whisper or two about plans for a T I N  B A R N  E X P A N S I O N… Well, the rumours are TRUE. Baker Bob has relocated his amazing smelling kitchen to a gorgeous new production space right behind his store, and now …we have a big empty space behind us that is just calling out for some LOVE. How could we say no?  We were feeling a little cramped anyway. Over the next few weeks we’re all about renovating – turning the old bakery into a more Tin Barn-style shop & hunting down lots of interesting finds to fill it with. The original shop space is still OPEN! 10am – 5pm Tuesday through Sunday, albeit a little dustier...

Getting Ready for Pretty Summer Nights!

Despite the cold weather holding on these days, summer is fast approaching!  When the warm weather is finally here no one wants to be indoors more than they have to.  It’s these warm nights that we’re looking forward to the most.  Nothing is more lovely than dining al fresco, so we can’t help thinking about setting the scene for long, delicious outdoor meals with friends and good conversations into the night.  Likely… helped out with a little vino or summery cocktails!  Check out some of these fabulous outdoor inspiration looks that we’re falling in love with.  Then let us help you create your own special backyard...

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...

IT’S OFFICIAL!

We’ve signed a lease for our summer pop-up shop!  We have been considering and weighing out the pros and cons of many different options over the past couple of months – events?  full time store?  barn? camper? so many ideas! … but we’ve finally made a decision. While we do love popping in and out of unexpected places, we started to feel like it was time to find a place that we could kick up our feet and call HOME for a while. SO…our new full time summer location will be beside Almonte’s best little hometown bakery on 73 Little Bridge St.  We are pumped to be back in the main street action of historic Almonte again!  We truly feel...

We heart you.

We threw a party last saturday (feb 11) and YOU CAME!  We can’t tell you how chuffed we were that so many of you showed up.  We had such a great time and it seemed like you did too.  We are definitely encouraged to try this again. Sharing a little pre-valentine’s love in the afternoon was the idea behind this one day pop-up event.  Love for objects that may have been forgotten or become under-appreciated by their previous owners.  Love for vintage.  Love for things made by real live people.  And love for you!  We missed you guys since we packed up the mill st pop-up. This was a ONE DAY affair in an old ontario farmhouse!   Such a great casual setting...
