Open on Canada Day, July 1st at noon

Mrs. Nicholson Home will open on Saturday, July 1st at noon.

We will be attending the Town Proclamation at 11:30 am at the Town Hall.

Annapolis Royal is welcoming 10 delegates from our twin city of Royan, France – the birthplace of Pierre Du Gua, founder of Port Royal in 1605.

At the Town Hall, there will be an exchange of Town flags and the singing of O Canada followed by the French national anthem – La Marseillaise.

We hope you will join us here in Annapolis Royal for all the Canada Day events.

There will be entertainment all day long at our new amphitheatre including music and a play. The outdoor pool is offering a FREE swim from 1 to 4 pm. The community band will be giving a concert on the Fort grounds at 12:30. The Historic Gardens will be free all day and the Town will be giving away lobster rolls to the first 500 people on the wharf at 4:30. And, of course, it is market day!

Be sure to visit the birthplace of Canada on this special Canada Day 150!

1960s Vintage Lane furniture

We’re delighted to have this set of four pieces of Lane furniture in the shop.

Lane furniture was made in Altavista, Virgina.

Lane furniture is known for its impeccable craftsmanship including dove-tailed joints.

Our pieces are authentic Lane marked with the Lane logo and a serial number which identifies the date the piece was made. For example, our side tables are marked 2 667208 which means the pieces were made on August 27th 1966 in plant #2.

These are sturdy, well made pieces.

The credenza would make a great TV console to hide away your DVD player and PVR!

Don’t like the brown ? Paint them and pick out the applied decoration in gilt paint. Would look fabulous!!

Lane coffee table and two end tables from the early 60s.  Original glass tops. Excellent condition and so practical. $575 set.
