Store Tour

Indulge in a virtual browse between visits.

Look up, look down, take another lap around…you still haven’t seen it all! You’ll find a surprise around every corner, and an endless selection of treasures to inspire you. With our fresh displays and new items arriving weekly, things are always changing, but there is a flow to the store that stays pretty consistent. Knowing it can help you zero in on what you’re after.

We invite you to enjoy this reading tour of the store. Get a sense of the general layout and some of our permanent fixtures, and indulge in a little virtual browsing. Come on in and let us show you around:

The Entrance

Your first stop is the front entrance, where you’ll find our selection of books for children, pet lovers and general interest, greeting cards and selected items in the feature section.

The Main Store

Step into the main store and take in the inspiring centre table display, which changes with the seasons (or on a whim). It’s here and on the surrounding display cases where you’ll find seasonal items: garden themes for spring and summer; fall harvest themes; Christmas for the holidays.

The counter on the right isn’t just for completing your purchase. You might have missed our candy counter, featuring the ever-popular Fraktals, to-die-for truffles, mints, fudge, hard candy jars and more. Our jewellery case is another treasure not to be missed. With unique designer pieces from both local and exotic sources, you’ll definitely want to stop here to make your wish list! Behind the counter is a selection of cozy quilt sets that you’ll want to sink into. Ask one of our friendly staff to get it down so you can have a closer look and feel.

Continue to the end of the counter and you’ll find a fun corner of baby and kids’ quilts, rugs, our “wall of stuffies” and adorable baby gifts.

On the other side of the stairs find popular brands of lotions and potions, soaps and body-care products. This is the likely source of that delicious fragrance that hit you on your way in the door.

The Victorian Room

This room, off to the left of the main store, is a throwback to a simpler time. It represents our continued commitment to the primitive style that’s been a signature of ours for so many years. Jute and hooked rugs, reproduction and reclaimed antique furniture pieces, rustic metal hooks, door knockers, needlepoint wall hangings, primitive-style dolls and pewter dinnerware are just a few of the ways that we keep the spirit and comforts of history alive at Granny Taught Us How.

The Stage

Back out and up the steps, you walk into our kitchen and food section. To your right are lots of fun options for the tea-lover, plus dish sets and serving accoutrements, cocktail and luncheon serviettes in a wide variety of colours and styles. This is where the hostess gets the mostest! And you can’t miss our impressive corner display of flameless candles in six sizes – we get a lot of comments about fire safety as people turn this corner! That’s how realistic they are!

On the other side of the stage is a wonderful selection of gourmet food items, from dip mixes and brie toppers, bread and soup mixes to exotic salts and seasonings, and good old fashioned marmalades and jams. All the fanciest comfort foods for you to enjoy in the comfort of your home.

Heidi’s Room

Our newest feature and pièce de résistance, Heidi’s Room represents the new life of Granny’s, offering the latest in contemporary home-décor. This is where you’ll find the glitz, the trends, the unique modern styles that you thought you could only get in “the city”. Look no further for décor with personality to spare.
