It is time to Downsize
Our first antiques purchase was in the spring of 1970 and our first antique show was two years later, in May 1972. We have been in the antiques business for 50 years and it is time to downsize. Our location in Washago will be sold as well as our huge inventory of Canadian country furniture and accessories. (Most pieces have not seen the light of day for 40+ years and are absolutely fresh to the market.
When we open the barn this 24th of May weekend, there has never been a better selection: glazed door cupboards, harvest tables, sets of chairs, blanket boxes, sideboards, chests or drawers, lamp tables, etc. — all pre-confederation, all Canadian, (with a small selection of exquisite vintage Canadiana). Of course we are still the exclusive outlet for Michel Fortin artwork sculptures.
When the downsizing is complete we will be continuing at our home location in Atherly with appointment only visits and custom refinishing.
As the vaccine rollouts proceed, we will continue to follow provincial guidelines and rest assured that your safety is our first priority. We are planning to open the barn location as follows:
From May to Thanksgiving:
Saturdays and Sundays ONLY.
(other times by chance or appointment only).
During these times we will be:
- enforcing social distancing between clients and staff within the barn
- limiting the number of people to enter the barn at once
- arranging social distancing procedures outside of the barn should overflow occur during busy hours
***All patrons are encouraged to wear masks while on the premises and make use of the
complimentary hand sanitizer offered at our entrance way***
Please call us to discuss timelines as the government announces their plans.
We will keep you posted with any updates. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
Hinton Antiques was founded in 1972 by Steve and Wendy Hinton. Steve and Wendy have long been considered among the most reputable antique dealers in the country. They specialize in pre-confederation Canadian Country furniture, Hinton Antiques sells, refinishes and restores what they consider to be pieces of Canadian history: high end Canadiana and accessories from 18th and 19th century Quebec and Ontario.
Here you will find an abundance of antique pieces such as harvest tables and sets of chairs, hutches, corner cupboards, chest of drawers, blanket boxes, storage benches and more. If a lower price point is what you are after, accessories and “smalls” such as butter bowls, hand carved butter ladles, cutlery trays, baskets, wall boxes, peg racks, decoys and folk art or even sap buckets are plentiful and are great cottage hostess gift ideas.
