Does he come home from work in the Summertime, change his clothes and head straight out to the Garden? Then this hand-cut Grow metal sign ( made by Elaina in Thunder Bay) would be perfect for him. And it's non-rusting.

Possible Gifts for Impossible People, The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

December is here, and it's the-what-do-we-get-for-Aunt Sophie-what-do-we-get-for-Joe-who-has-everything? We have loved ones in Nursing Homes, we want to get them something special, but WHAT? These are the people who took care of us when we were little, I remember ( back when I was little) wanting some clothes for my Doll, and my Mum, who sewed a little bit, tried her best. I waited patiently, doll sans clothes in my hands, while she attempted to sew the impossibly small outfits. These are the special ones who maybe sang us this song....

You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are grey...We have this cushion for sale at our shop, #TheCamellia, Cushions make a nice Gift for someone in a Retirement home. 

SO often, we hear older visitors to out store exclaim, "Oh, If I still had my house, I would get this..and this,,and .." This printed Rudolph cushion makes a great Gift. 

Our stain resistant. water repellent Tablcloths are a good choice for Gift-giving.. Most spills will wipe up with a damp rag, and they're polyester, so you can throw them in the wash. They come in 4 sizes, 70" square, 70" round, 78" rectangle, and a 94" rectangle. We have lots of patterns and colours in stock, and limited stock in the 107" and the 126", which are the bigger sizes you would use for entertaining. Once you try these, you will be back for more. Our customers that spend winters in warmer places, also buy these. How do you know what size you need...? Think about how many are seated at your table, as a general rule allow 24" for each seated person, so if you seat 4-6, you need the 78" rectangle, and if you seat 6-8, you need the 94" rectangle. 

A gift of Neob Lavender from Niagara is a real treat...Lavender is a natural stress reliever, and the muscle & joint cream is wonderful for aches & pains. Come into our store #TheCamellia, or we can put together a Lavender Gift pack, and deliver for you. If calling from outside Thunder Bay, use our toll-free # 1-877-523-7444. 

Our #Brunelli Room sprays - with the coming of Winter, our rooms can get a bit stale, and these Room sprays do not contain chemicals or nasty things that make you ill.

#Beekman1802 Fresh Air Lotions are fresh smelling, and good for you - no nasty stuff in them. They make a great Gift for anyone. 

Plush furry Pillows, and 100% Cotton bedding - wonderful for someone that may be bedridden. 
This pattern is Brad, in stock in a Queen size, $199.00 (+hst) for Queen duvet, with 2 shams. In soothing shades of greys, taupes, and ivory.
