Our shop got it’s name more or less from a play on words...
Czech it Out- Czechoslovakia- my husbands birth place, and from where we first imported items for our shop back in the mid 1990’s.
Also stands for “check it out” - as to look something over carefully.
And finally- to “ check it out” - as in to purchase an item.
Our shop carries a pleasing eclectic mix of vintage and antique items. Pretty much what what you would expect to find in an antique shop, and some you would never imagine!
We also proudly carry a wonderful array of Indigenous Works of Art, From beadwork, leatherwork, paintings, pottery and sculpture to drums and rattles.
Although I am not an appraiser, I really enjoy doing the research- finding out what something is, it’s origins and original use..
I also enjoy meeting people, sharing with them family history of their items or taking them on a walk down memory lane. I treasure items from the past and consider it a privilege to be able to pass on to future generations the wonderful history of our treasured antiques.
We opened our present retail shop at it’s location in Meaford,, Ontario, Canada.
Meaford is situated on the shores of Georgian Bay, between Collingwood and Owen Sound.
This past year we have seen tremendous growth, and have launched an online shop. Now we have the opportunity to reach even more people 7 days a week, 24 hours a day!
Looking forward to serving you.
