During a visit to see my parents, my Mom and I spent a day visiting several of our favourite antique shops. It was a perfect day to finally stop by Useful Things in Parkland County.
One of my favourite stores in Calgary, Iron Crow, announced that they were moving locations earlier this year. This announcement came just before lockdown and as the full impact of this pandemic became known, they delayed the opening of their new location. On August 1st, they officially welcomed everyone to see their new space which is a huge warehouse in the Manchester Industrial Park district.
The warehouse has high ceilings and is beautifully merchandised. Throughout the space, you’ll find partitions where ‘rooms’ have been created displaying similar items or specific looks. For example, they created this lovely vignette showcasing kitchen items.
