New Stuff that is not online

Due to the limitations of our shopping cart - there are a few items that we do not offer online, as the cost of shipping them would kill us. ;-) As our silver smithing classes expand, we will be carrying more of these sorts of things. With the addition of the lost wax classes, expect to see more of the wax and carving tools too.

So - if you are in need of these, and you are going to be coming to the store - well - there you go! If you are coming only for these items, it's a good idea to call ahead and make sure we didn't sell the last ones to a busload of beady ladies who drove in from Sault Ste Marie just yesterday. We can order more for you, or put stuff aside. (Contact info at the end.)

It's worth the trip to come in - we're open 7 days a week, there are restaurants close by (including our fave - Cajun Bajan), free parking, and other shopping in the area (including a Canadian Tire and a Rona, if you need to send your husband away to amuse himself. Actually, there's a movie theatre and a pub too if you really want to shop).

We're not hard to get to - and we're not downtown so the traffic isn't so freaky for those of you who are from outside the greater Toronto area and just can't take the downtown traffic conditions and swear you'll never drive there again. (I was downtown earlier this week, the only roads that weren't under construction had movies being shot on them.)

Hope to see you soon! (Wear some of your jewelry when you come - we LOVE to see what you make!)
