About me

Occupation store owner
Location Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I am married to my best friend,we have five children ages 12,15,17,20,&22. Two dogs, Sunny our 8yr old Golden Retriever and Buster our 2yr old Olde English Bulldogge,we also have a kitty named Chicken (long story)and a kitten named Pippi Longstocking (who plays fetch with Qtips). We live and run our Antiques shop in Bowmanville Ontario(since 2005). We enjoy flea markets,antique shows,auctions, and best of all making house calls.Our home is just outside of town and we feel like it is our cottage,the creek runs behind us, so we have the best of both worlds,store in the historic downtown and home 4 mins away.We are very casual folk,with the attitude that the more nicks and dents just adds character...with 5 kids you have to be,we are never worried about shoes on in the house or something spilling on the's the only way to live..
Interests I am addicted to HGTV, love Sarah Richardson and Tommy of course, Mike Holmes can inspect my house ANYDAY!
