Shopping Like a Designer on Ottawa Street
Molly’s Back Porch and Millionaire’s Daughter are two of many antique and consignment shops on Ottawa Street in the East end of Hamilton. They are among an eclectic mix of shopping destinations on the street that include art galleries, fabric shops, and other speciality stores. I enjoyed a few hours there recently and snapped a few pictures of items that I would be happy to include in the homes and gardens of my clients. Maybe they will inspire you.
At Molly’s Back Porch shutters, corbels and old furniture get a second life after a coat of paint. The owner has a knack for re-inventing old materials and turning them into pieces with purpose and personality that will add depth and patina to a space.
Old wicker has old world appeal but these black square tables have a rare modern feel; these are a find!
