Owner Paul Joy is an accomplished woodworker and his attention to detail ensures that furniture from Antique Addict is guaranteed to be in excellent condition and treasured for many years. Every piece of furniture offered in the store has passed through Paul’s workshop and been professionally refreshed, restored, repaired and polished.
Antique Addict stocks Cottage Paint, a Canadian-made, clay based paint that is available in 50 beautiful colours, plus glazes, waxes and topcoats. It is simple to use – no sanding, priming or stripping. Cottage Paint makes it easy to transform that tired old piece into something special!

Antique Addict also carries a specialty product called Kramer’s Best Antique Improver. We have found it to be the best product available to clean, renew and revitalize your furniture. Paul uses this product on all the furniture he sells and refinishes.
