Welcome to the Antique Addict! Please note we have changed our hours and will be closed on Tuesdays in March. We have lots of jobs to do at home, this year we’d like to prune the fruit trees before the leaves come out! So we are going to take a few days off and hope that everyone will come and see us on the other twenty-seven days of March. ~ Thanks, Paul & Cathy 🙂
Our cozy boutique in historic downtown Ladysmith specializes in quality, affordable antique and vintage furniture that has been restored with care to give you years of enjoyment. Often you will find unique and exceptional statement pieces in our beautifully displayed store. We carry vintage collectables including glass, china, art, tools, lamps, mirrors and clocks plus a selection of new items including hooks, knobs, signs and chinaware.
For restoration work we supply Kramer’s Best Antique Improver, a superb product to clean, restore, preserve and protect all your real wood furniture. We stock Cottage Paint for your home furniture projects , a Canadian made clay-based paint that requires no sanding, stripping or priming – you just paint! It is available in 58 beautiful colours plus waxes, glazes and varnishes to give you lots of finishing choices.

Antique Addict is a level entry, dog-friendly shop with our own convenient parking lot at the rear entrance. We are just 30 minutes south of Nanaimo and the BC Ferries, or a scenic one hour north from Victoria, BC.
Antique Addict is Recycling At Its Finest! Instead of buying new, you can save money and be green by purchasing reasonably priced, carefully restored furniture that is made to last. We prove that good things do come in a small package!
