Ottawa Antique Market


Bryan and I went to the Ottawa Antique Market last Saturday. And it’s been a minute since I’ve been and we had so much fun! They’re located at 1179A Bank Street and there’s parking!

We both have a love for old things that have been previously owned. We really cherish them and the stories and memories they carry!

“One of the things that attracts me to vintage and antique things is they have stories, and even if I don’t know the stories, I make them up.” -Mary Kay Andrews
