  • Just going through some of the reviews here and must say I have to agree with most, this is the most delightful, unique and enjoyable shopping experience you will find in this part of Ontario - quite possibly the whole province. The staff are warm,friendly and inviting and go above and beyond to help. My husband and I travel extensively and I have yet to find a shop as unique or inviting to date in our travels. I find it disheartening to see reviews written like the one found on this page critical of staff/owners for wanting to maintain some order when a child who no doubt was undisciplined and running unsupervised in a store that is definitely not a toy store (we have all seen and been around those entitled little darlings) are posted. If the adults making these negative posts put as much time and thought into parenting as they did into attempting to influence negatively the shopping experience at a perfectly delightful shop perhaps there wouldn't have been an issue in the first place, and I doubt very much that this shopping location is the first who has found it necessary to speak to their unruly child.
  • Love this store, just to browse. Good quality clothing, but expensive. Near stuff
  • I have been going to the tin shed since Janis and Dagny had the little drop in Birds Creek. It is such a beautiful place to look shop and shop. I have bought so many decor items for my home over many years and this year I was able to purchase a very very old farm table from them. I feel so very grateful to have waited so long to get exactly what I have always wanted. The shop has something for everyone so if you travelling to Bancroft up highway 28 please make a special stop at The Old Tin Shed.YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
  • From the moment you see the exterior of the shop you feel inspired! Every piece of this restored building is a design and decorating inspiration. Walking through the door you're greeted with sweet smells, plush fabrics, rustic décor and a caring, supportive staff. This is not so much a store as Pinterest coming to life. The Old Tin Shed has earned its place as one of Canada's great places to shop. Thank you to the team behind this retail adventure. It is a true "happy place."
  • Loved the shop! You could spend hours looking at everything. Looking forward to our next trip to visit.
