Winter Open House at The Camellia, Artisans Northwest 2017.

Winter...It is certainly a magical world after a fresh snowfall. Everything is white and pristine and beautiful. We invite you to our WInter Open house which is on this Saturday (11-5p) and Sunday (12-5p). There is nothing cozier than sitting by a warm fire, watching the snow falling outside. 
Come and see our favourite finds for this joyous season- warm throws, comfy cushions, stars, ornaments, Cottage Paint, and fabulous Gift ideas for everyone on your Christmas list. 

If you need help with updating your Winter decor, take all your Christmas decorations out, and take photos of them. Then head to The Camellia, at 30, Hacquoil Rd. and we can suggest some updates. We have real-looking, faux evergreen Wreaths and garlands. Fresh Wreaths, made mostly with greenery from our own forest,  are being made. Ask about our large Wreaths for commercial decor. 
Note that we are not exhibiting at the Artisans Northwest 2017 Show at Valhalla Inn. You can easily visit us at our store at 30, Hacquoil Rd. which is 10 minutes south of Thunder Bay Airport.
