A Hidden Gem; Uniquities!

December 13, 2012

I’ve discovered a hidden gem… Well to be fair, they discovered me and I’ve been hiding their secret ever since!

A few months ago, I was invited to a very prestigious fashion show in Calgary, AB and when the invite came, I noticed the address of a location I had never heard of before;

Uniquities

Architectural Antiques and Salvage

From the outside, I can best describe the look as an old factory, perhaps that of Willy Wonka or some other dated manufacturing plant.

And on the inside: a world filled with treasures!

The owners of this massive space have been sorting through the best of the best, all over Europe and have shipped the antiques back on freight ships.

Now I know what you’re thinking…

“I can barely afford local antiques, how do you expect me to dig up the cash to buy the ones that have been shipped from the other side of the world!?”

Well surprisingly the prices are very reasonable and in some cases, a steal!

The best part of the massive warehouse? All the items have a story and the pickers are there to share them with you!

They can tell you exactly where they found it and although their days of hopping fences and sorting through rubbish bins are behind them, in most case, they can still share a really interesting retrieval story.

This is one spectacular space, full of amazing treasures; as soon as you step foot inside you’ll wish you knew about it sooner.

I’m in LOVE!
