We are a family owned, brick and mortar store, located on the Alaska Highway within the great city of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. What started out as a 90-degree, unchartered career turn, has become a labour of love procuring vintage, imported and antique items for the home and the stead. We also offer quality bedding, furniture restoration supplies including a great little hardware collection, beekeeping supplies, cigars, pipe tobacco, and some sweet handmade confections.
There's a nostalgic atmosphere inside where you can find ones-of-a-kind made locally and globally. Maybe best described as a modern twist on the general store.
We are all about enhancing your stead, space, spot, what's around you...your psychological habitat whether that's the condo balcony or the farm porch.
