Another week of summer

Well, it's September already, but thanks to a late Labour Day weekend we feel like we've been given an extra week of summer vacation. There's still lots of summertime fun to be had in cottage country so enjoy another week at the cottage, sit on the dock, swim in the lake, roast marshmallows over a campfire, and be sure to drop by West Wind to see all of our new arrivals. You're going to love the pieces that have arrived over the last few days!
We're still on summer hours right through the long weekend.

Canoe head

There were a lot of Canoe Head and Portage jokes being cracked by customers as Jim had the fun job of bringing this large antique canoe into the shop, through the crowds, up a narrow flight of stairs with a 90 degree turn, and onto the second floor. We do love to have fun props in our displays, even if they are tricky to set up!

Tea Time

Tea or coffee, which do you choose? 

On beautiful late summer mornings in cottage country, there's nothing better than sipping your coffee from your favourite mug, watching the mist come off the water. Wouldn't you agree?

Whether you like delicate fine bone china, chunky pottery cottage mugs or whimsical floral ceramics, at West Wind we have a huge selection of mugs that are ideal for gift giving, or for treating yourself to a special mug just for mornings by the lake.

Year round Christmas room

Throughout cottage season customers visiting the area for summer vacation started their holiday shopping at our store. We love it when happy customers find "just the right thing" for that special someone and proudly declare that holiday shopping has officially begun. Many families have a summer tradition of beginning their shopping at West Wind, taking their finds back to the city and surprising their loved ones with memories of the cottage.

Our popular Christmas room is open year round and is full of whimsical holiday items. We've had numerous holiday orders arrive in the last few weeks including new collections of cottage themed ornaments, candles, woodland decor, and many new gnomes and Santas. Of course, we have loads of new non-seasonal arrivals too! Come on by and have a look to find the perfect gifts for the special people in your life.
