We have purchased articles of furniture from pretty much every single antique/second-hand store on Ottawa St. We hit it every shop on Saturday mornings with our list of items we still would like - by doing this we have been able to purchase exactly what we were looking for: we just had to have a little patience and wait for them to turn up (including an antique Morris chair, a leather sofa, an arts and crafts library desk, several wardrobes for our old house that has no closets)! It's the best place to shop when you are looking for quality pieces and your budget is tight. We are now on a "Hi, how are you ?" basis with these shop owners (even though we usually don't make a purchase) and it is one of the pleasantest parts of our busy weekend. It doesn't take long to do, and we usually fit in a coffee as well.

Gonna put in a word for All Sorts gallery also - I have bought wedding gifts there, and Christmas gifts. Last year our kids, knowing how much we love the shop, chipped in and bought us a beautiful gift for our anniversary.
