Store Love

store love – sentimental journey antiques

I visited the town of Nanton over the Easter long weekend.  It’s a small, quaint town just south of Calgary with fantastic antique shops and art galleries.  I quickly fell in love with Sentimental Journey Antiques (1901 – 20th Avenue) during my visit.  This shop is huge with three floors full of fabulous finds.

A great feature of this store is that it’s housed in the Keeley Building.  Built in 1909, the main level was once a hardware store and the top floor was eventually converted into apartments. These former officer apartments now display antiques, collectibles, lighting, books and kitchenware.

I recognized this from an episode of Canadian Pickers

I’m really hoping to head back to Nanton soon to visit this store again as it was certainly worth the drive.   The owners have a second store in town that we didn’t get a chance to visit but that’s on the list for next time.
