UPDATE 09/20/20

We are open to the public. Tuesdays through Thursdays no appointment required. We ask if you have a large group of five or more to please call as we do have a 25 people capacity. Appointments are strongly suggested for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as we do have limited space.   Please call us at 905-885-7516 to reserve your shopping time. We do try to accommodate walk-ins on the weekends, but by having an appointment there will be no wait time.  We are open Tuesdays-Sunday 9am to 5pm.  We are booking every hour on the hour. And allowing an hour time to shop and play.

To ensure the safety of our staff, family and customers, we require masks to be worn in the store and all tented areas. Our washroom is currently unavailable to the public. As our change rooms are also closed, clothing may not be tried on at this time. Children must remain within 2ft of parents at all times; this is for their protection as we cannot guarantee all surfaces are disinfected. All purchases are final sale.

For those who cannot wear a mask we are happy to accommodate you but do ask you to keep your 6 ft social distance both your safety and others around you.

If anyone would like to select time to come to the gallery that is quieter not so many people for what ever reason, please call our store and we can guide you.


Stay safe, we wish you happiness and good health
