Paula DiRenzo scours flea markets, garage sales and antique barns up north for only the most visually appealing artifacts. A rare Koh-I-Noor Cast Iron Pencil Sharpener, circa 1900, is about as useful as a paperweight, but its retro graphics make it a covetable ornament. The offerings are varied. Wool trapper blankets, bell jars displaying taxidermy, and century-old puppets take up shelf space beside Canadian-made products of today like Vancouver Candle Co. diffusers in scents such as Great Lakes and The North.
