Treasures Anew is moving!

Dear Consignors and Clients,

As you may already be aware, the strip mall will be demolished to make room for an LRT station.  The City has given notice that all shops must vacate their premises by September 1, 2018.

I am in the midst of finalizing the lease for a new location.  Fingers crossed, it will be at 1390 Clyde Avenue, Suite 101, Ottawa K2G 3H9 (near Denny’s Restaurant.)    The move date is May 1 and we hope to be open within a week of the move.  Business, in the meantime will continue as usual at our present location until we close the doors on April 29.

All consigned items whose due date is the end of April will be packaged and you will be called for your pick-up one week prior to April 29.  If you wish to bring in items for consignment between March 1 and April 27, you will be asked if you want your items moved and displayed in the new location.  If yes, you will be asked to sign a form giving us permission to move your items and releasing us from any damages or loss (while we will be hiring professional movers to package and transport items to the new location, accidents do occasionally happen). Though we do not expect the move to disrupt business for very long, we will nevertheless provide you with an extended time in the new location, i.e. 3 months instead of 2.  If you do not wish to join us at our new location, we will not be accepting your items for processing between now and  April 27.

So to prove that it’s business as usual, why not have a peak at some of the goodies that have come to our store this month (www.treasuresanew.ca):

  • Patrick’s German wood figurines
  • Vintage linen dresser set, shamrocks
  • 2 china serving plates in shape of a shamrock

  • Easter linens, runners and towels

Cupid Comes to Treasures Anew

Greetings to all my frozen consignors and clients,

The beginning of 2018 was not kind to us.  What in the world did we do to deserve this punishing winter?  What Gods did we anger?  What must we do to appease those in charge so that we can return to a normal winter?  How about we all just say “uncle” and see if the weather warms up.  The only good thing about this type of wicked weather is that it has the benefit of uniting us all in the common mantra of, “Cold enough for you?”.

Besides the winter being a cruel blow to business, Premier Wynn has added an extra challenge:  a 21% increase in wages.  For small businesses, this is a major challenge to overcome.  As wages represent a major part of operational costs, this cost for small-margin businesses such as Treasures Anew, represents a significant increase.  It’s just not about wages, but CRA remittance, stat holidays and vacation pay.    After all, we cannot negotiate leases, hydro, gas or telephone.  There is very little wiggle room.  What I would say to Premier Wynn is that you cannot solve the problem of poverty on the backs of small businesses.  There are other measures that can be taken such as taxing the populace at large to ensure that our lowest-paid employees are compensated through these tax measures.   But, let’s face, this was a political move, not one based on sound economics.  Every major business and economic council advised her not to move so quickly and drastically, yet she ignored their best advice, stating that “there would be no consequences”.   Yet, this is not the case.  Cut in hours, benefits, and job losses are now evident.  So much for the Premier’s declaration of “no consequences”.

All to say, to keep our doors open, you will see two changes.  We will be reducing our hours of operation.  Instead of being opened on Thursdays and Fridays until 8 pm, we will now close at 7 pm.  Similarly, we will now close on Saturdays at 5 pm, instead of 6 pm.  You will also see a small increase in the cost of our products (between 25 cents and a dollar).  We simply have no choice.  If you enjoy our store, you will understand why we have taken these measures so that we can continue to serve your needs. If these changes upset you, please make your views known to the Premier.

Enough about politics.  Let’s move onto to more pleasant things.  You know that we always have a flow of new treasures coming into our store.  Why not see a some of them at treasuresanew.ca.  Here’s a listing of some of our latest arrivals.

Season’s Greetings from Treasures Anew

Dear Consignors and Clients,

It’s only the beginning of December but already we’ve been inundated with Christmas lights, trees, and various other seasonal displays for the last month. There is some reason behind this madness. Christmas is one of the most festive times of the year and it’s no wonder that this is our way of warding off the miseries of winter by focusing and embracing all that is Christmas: family traditions, community, renewal, and shared moments.

Even though this is a magical time of year, let’s be honest… it can also be so very stressful. With all the demands from friends and family and the time spent shopping and preparing the home and food, it is easy to see how you can feel burnt out during this time of the year. But while Treasures Anew can’t help you prepare food, clean your house or prepare for visiting guests, we can help you fulfill your shopping needs for this season of giving and sharing.

Gobble Gobble Greetings from Treasures Anew

Happy Thanksgiving, Consignors and Clients,

Ottawa is a beautiful city at any time of the year, but is particularly breathtaking in the fall when Thanksgiving occurs.  Leaves turn spectacular colours, so brilliant as to appear almost neon.  The air is cool and crisp.  Everything seems sharper and clearer.

Unlike American Thanksgiving which falls in November, our Thanksgiving has been celebrated on the second Monday in October since 1957.  The first thanksgiving can be traced back to Ontario in the mid-1880s.  The Protestant clergy successfully lobbied the Canadian government to create Canada’s first, national Thanksgiving in 1859.  At any rate, deciding to have Thanksgiving in October when the weather is still warm enough for us to enjoy the outdoors was a great idea!

And enjoy the last vestiges of good weather before the first flakes begin to fall.  Speaking of which, we will be accepting Christmas items Monday, October 16.  Just a heads-up — given our limited space, we will be giving preference to those items that are unique and/or of higher value/quality.

Here’s a hint of what just came in…you can see some photos on our web site at www.treasuresanew.ca, under the category “showcase”.

Fall into Autumn at Treasures Anew

Dear Consignors and Clients,

Bye-bye summer, hello fall.  The transition into fall might represent a tough time for some of you.  The calendar is once again filling up with overlapping events, and you may wonder how you’ll squish them all in.  You may look longingly at your checklist of summer fun and lament the things you never got to.  When you leave your home in the morning or as the sun sets more quickly with every passing day, you notice that distinctive chill in the air, and you ask yourself, “when do I finally put away my sandals and start going through the cupboard for those long-sleeve garments.”  It’s not surprising that this time of year can lead you down the road of blues.

Shifting your thoughts to the joys of upcoming holidays – Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah — can help you “reboot” your life and take on new challenges.  Treasures Anew helps you through these moments of transition by providing you with seasonally-related items.  With the hundreds of new items that arrive weekly, it’s easy to distract yourself with a visit to our store.

Summer Greetings to all!

It’s August… and boy, oh, boy, haven’t we all been so disappointed.  So much rain and so few really sunny, warm days.  We definitely have been gypped this year.  It’s just not fair.  How can summer be so short and winter so long?  You know what they say about seasons in Ottawa:  there are only two – winter and construction.  But I’m not the first to whine about our short summers.  It’s part of our collective vocabulary.  We may not agree on politics but we certainly share the same opinion on the state of this summer’s weather.

Speaking of time and seasons, Treasures Anew has now been opened for nearly 8 years, and we are so proud to keep serving you all.   We recently had our Canada 150 Weekend Sale and we were so happy that so many of you came out to take advantage of some really great savings.  .

Canada 150 Greetings from Treasures Anew

Dear Consignors and Clients,

Enjoying Canada 150?  Have you taken advantage of all the festivals that are special events that are commemorating this fantastic event?  This is certainly a momentous time in our country’s history and we really need to reflect on what a wonderful country this is, especially when you read about all the misery that plagues so many nations.

As a first generation Canadian, I cannot thank my parents enough for having taken the plunge and worked so many menial jobs to establish their presence in Canada.  I’m only one of thousands of Canadians whose parents chose to immigrate to Canada.  They had no idea what the future held for them.  But through very hard work, they stayed, worked through language and anti-immigrant sentiments and made Canada their home.

Enough with the flag-waving.  You probably just want to know what treasures came into our store this month.  You know what you have to do:  just go the www.treasuresanew.ca (under showcase) to see of our latest arrivals.  They include:

  • Repro wall telephone from the 1940s
  • Wicker 3-tier shelf, accent table and a footstool
  • Coke refrigerator
  • Accent tables, various shapes and sizes
  • Travel folk up artist easel

Two important notes of interest to consignors.  Firstly, as of July 17, we will stop taking in any seasonally-related items.  Secondly, due to rising operational costs, we regretfully have to announce that we will be changing our split from 50/50 to 40/60.  (This by the way is the norm for most consignment stores).  This will be effective as of July 3, 2017.  All consignors who have brought in items before June 30 will be “grandfathered”, i.e., you will receive 50% as per your contract. Please, also remember that you must collect monies in your account within a year of your last activity date with us.

Thank you, in advance, for your understanding.

Celebrate Dads with Gifts from Treasures Anew

Dear Consignors and Clients,

Oh, it’s that glorious time of the year when we begin to lovingly look at our gardens and imagine what joy it will bring us in the next couple of months.  “What shall I choose to plant first?” “Shall I go with the tried-and-true?”  “Maybe experiment with some more exotic (and expensive) choices?”  If choosing plants weren’t challenging enough, we have to think about how we will complement our beautiful greenery.  New patio furniture?  Outdoor figurines?  Lanterns and garden picks?

While we all want to make our outdoor environment the envy of all, we know that it costs money.  Every one of us feels the effects of shrinking pay cheques, pensions  and rising prices.  And we know that there is little that we have control over.  We have to pay the mortgage, utilities, and phone.  But we do have control over other discretionary spending.  All to say, we don’t have to pay retail if we don’t want to.  There are other options.

Consignment shopping is one of the many viable choices that you have.  We’d like to think that Treasures Anew offers you a selection of items that are far more competitive (and unique) than you could find in retail shops.  Our items, even new, are priced at 1/3 the cost of retail.  So if you’re thinking about adding to your outdoors, sprucing up your house, or buying that special gift for a loved one, think about Treasures Anew.  We’re open 7 days a week for your convenience and we’d love to help you meet your needs.

Our store slogan is “a new store with every visit”.  And we aren’t exaggerating.   We have hundreds of new items that we price and place on our shelves each week. If you want to get an overview of the types of items we carry, just visit www.treasuresanew.ca for some visuals.

Oh, but here we go again.  Another holiday to celebrate.  Father’s Day is just around the corner, June 18th.  And golly, are’nt men difficult to buy for?  We have a few suggestions that just might ease your stress.    How about:
