Christmas at The Old Tin Shed

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and you know what that means; a trip to the Old Tin Shed in Bancroft is in order!

Owners Kathryn and Geoffrey Webber are already busy getting the store ready for the bustling season.

Kathryn is what Geoffrey refers to as a “Christmas-aholic”, she just can’t get enough of the holiday season and she has big plans for the iconic church building! You gnomescan expect to see the store as an enchanted Christmas locale with the first Christmas tree up by November 1st, and a fully enchanted wonderland by mid-November.

Looking for the perfect addition to your growing Christmas ornament collection? Old Tin Shed will have multiple trees decorated to showcase all the baubles of the season; they even have a decorated birch tree strung up with one-of-a-kind handmade indoor and outdoor décor.

Gnomes are big this year and if you look around the store you will find little gnome friends peeking out at you from all the nooks and crannies.

There are always new signs arriving and you can expect to find something merry and bright with Christmas and holiday sayings and favourite quotes.

As we all prepare to begin our home decorating and entertaining – especially knowing that this will be a home-centred Christmas this year – why not bring in some new linens? There are wonderfully witty tea towels in stock, sure to put a smile on your face.

The Old Tin Shed is in the business of making your home cozy – which is especially important this year as we all spend more time in our homes and cottages. Take home a deliciously scented candle, handmade soap or some of their local honey products – perfect to share with a friend. A jar of savoury Rootham Gourmet Preserves goes well with a new charcuterie board and makes a great gift.

And remember – they giftwrap using recycled bags, tissue and ribbon – all you have to do is put it under the tree!

The Webbers are proud to offer 100-mile sourced products; this means that they work hard to support local handmade artisans and carry these items in the shop – and you can’t go wrong with handmade!
