Home and Garden
During the spring and summer months, our gift shop focuses on products for your home and garden. We feature a wide range of useful and decorative products and gift ideas for your home, yard and cabin, some of which are produced right next door at the Hand Crafter! Hand-woven durable lawn chairs, hand-crafted solid wood furniture including children’s tables and chairs, toy boxes, picnic tables, deck chairs, wiener-roasting skewers, bird houses, etc, are complimented by lawn and garden ornaments (such as metal ornaments, bird baths, gnomes and fairies), plant pots, gardening tools, etc, all supplied to us by local crafters and Manitoba-based wholesalers.
Winters are long in this country, so we try to warm it up a little by providing numerous unique gift ideas such as locally produced jewelry, hand knit scarves, quilts, locally produced wool products such as socks, mittens, pillows, yarn, etc! Christmas is also a time for celebrating and decorating, so we strive to provide unique Christmas ornaments and decorations for you to ‘deck your halls’ with!
Our commitment to our local community and the arts, which enriches everyone’s lives, moves us to showcase local art including the work of well-known local artists such as Phillip Lord, as well as amature artists, actors and musicians.
Consignment Items and Local Crafts
In addition to the quality hand-made crafts made at the Hand Crafter, the gift shop also provides opportunities for local crafters to sell their items to interested buyers! These consignment gift items include locally made wool items, soaps, cards, moccasins, baby clothes, hand bags, etc!
Sawmill welcomes the donation of quality used books, games, puzzles, CD’s, and movies, that we in turn sell as one of our fundraising efforts to offset the costs of running our various programs, including the Sawmill Tea & Coffee Co. itself! Come in and browse our extensive bookshelves!
