The Old House Revival Company is growing in popularity among the local residents of Winnipeg. The building is the perfect home for an antique store with great history. It was built in 1914 and was repurposed to become an auction house in the 60s. The current owner took over in 2002 and worked hard on a creative renovation job to turn it into what it is now. It is always satisfying to gaze upon a historic building before stepping through the front doors to browse through the historic items on the inside.
The antiques and vintage items within The Old House Revival Company are spread out over four floors. More than 40 different vendors set up shop within, so there is a great variety of goods available and always new items to browse through. Care is taken with the layout of vendors and the presentation of the items, so everything is easy to see and handle. This is wonderful, since one of the pleasures of shopping for old and unique items is to pick things up, feel around and get an idea of the history held within. Everything is kept clean and tidy too, showing that ages of dust is not necessary, even though some of the items are ages old.
The Old House Revival Company is the perfect spot to stop off for anyone redecorating or renovating their house. There are so many original finds here; lighting fixtures and fittings, stained glass, old maps and other art work, china ware, tins, bird houses, vintage toys, baskets, garden hardware and of course furniture of all shapes and sizes. Prices of course vary, so be sure to have a walk around the whole store to see what is on offer before settling on a favorite item. Or two. Or three. Some vendors are happy to enter into a bargaining debate too, so do not be shy to try.
