I collect, restore and renew home furnishings and housewares in Ottawa, ON. Styles that I like include traditional, mid-century modern, and art deco. While I love antiquing, all things retro, and chatting about the latest finds, I also have a passion for design, real estate investment, and environmental preservation. I hope all of these passions come through in the items you see in the shop. I like to think of it as a little bit of Wiseman and a little bit of Cromwell ;) The name of the shop comes from two streets where all of this got started.
Thanks for stopping by!
Q. How does your online shop work? What can I buy online?
A. Right now you can purchase small items such as tableware, kitchenware, and accessories online and we will ship anywhere in Canada and the USA. All furniture can be purchased online as well, but are only available for local delivery or local in-store pick up in Ottawa, ON.
Q. Where do you ship?
A. For all items except furniture and extra large items we can provide a shipping quote for shipping within Canada and the USA.
Q. What is your return policy?
A. Due to the unique nature of all of our products, we do not accept returns or exchanges. All sales are final. We do our best to indicate when there are any flaws with our items. Most items are 30-100 years old, so you should expect items to be in "vintage condition".
Q. Do you restore/re-upholster furniture?
A. We currently do not have the capacity to take on restoration projects or upholstery projects for your furniture but we will be happy to do any custom work on furniture purchased in the store.
Q. Do you buy?
A. Yes! If you are looking to sell furniture or small pieces please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will pick up and pay cash for items that represent the look and style of WISEMAN + CROMWELL.
Q. Do you sell by commission?
A. If you've been to our shop, you'll see we are very limited in our sales space but we are open to doing sales by commission for special pieces. Please email email@example.com for more details.
Q. When will you have more regular store hours?
A. We're still working on this. We want to be able to provide the best selection of items and the best service when you visit us. Right now, the best solution is to be open by appointment. You can book an appointment up to one month in advance online. You can also purchase online and pick up in-store. We are also working to get our stock photos online, so you can browse at home. If you are passing by and you see the lights on, feel free to drop in.
