Shop Local This Winter

December 1, 2017



Fashion—Décor—Eco-friendly. Three words that describe Downtown Collingwood shopping. With trendy clothing boutiques and shops that feature handcrafted items, Collingwood is the go-to place to find a gift for that someone special. These independent businesses are each one unique, with its own flair and style, and together create that inviting mix of modern & timeless that is the flavour of the historical Downtown, making Collingwood the ideal shopping destination this winter.

The heart of Collingwood thrives on a mix of classic style and innovative fashions. Visit Appeal Boutique for fancy footwear, accessories and stunning ladies’ daytime and evening wear, or Cora Couture for fashions from Poland, France, Spain, Lithuania, California and New York. Bring the whole family for a Collingwood afternoon complete with an extraordinary shopping experience at Christie’s, The Style Boutique or Grapevine Cottage. Winter fashion lines are in, and there is something for everyone! Men’s and ladies’ fashions for the young at heart from Poise On Main … and unique styles for the special lady in your life at Metra Fashion House or Lëuk. Make the brick-path sidewalk your personal runway and hit the catwalk this winter in Downtown Collingwood. Fine fashion and friendly people.

From fashion sense to home sense, Collingwood has it all, offering the best in home décor. Enjoy a leisurely Sunday afternoon browsing Farrow Arcaro Designs, a treasure-trove of stylish, one-of-a-kind items. Make your house a home with unique pieces that represent your style. Artwork, custom designed furniture, elegant lighting: bring something special home for Christmas from this local gem. And don’t forget to stop by Lëuk, a European-style home boutique that offers pieces of art and vintage artifacts from all around the world, including Turkey, the Netherlands, France, Istanbul, and Hungary.  Clerksons, Rustic Charm and At Home Interiors are filled to the brim with décor, furniture and gift items for the hard to buy for. …. or yourself!

Collingwood’s harbourfront downtown is a showcase for the artisan community. Find something that you won’t find anywhere else at the artist studios in the Tremont… or from the art collections found at Butter, The Painterie or the Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts. Pick out something good for the soul at Appealing Environments Rock Shop.

Perfect gift packs and accessories are available at Blue Mountain Tea Company.  Accompany it with a book to read from the Simcoe Street Books.  Little ones to spoil?  Let the staff at Mind’s Alive help you pick out a favourite toy.
