Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to the questions we get asked most often.

Where can I find you?

My studio, gallery and dress shop is located at 18 James Street in downtown Parry Sound. In July and August I can also be found at the Gravenhurst Farmers Market on Wednesdays and the Rosseau Farmers Market on Fridays.


When are you open?

Our hours at 18 James Street change with the seasons. In the summer, we are usually open Monday to Wednesday from 10-5, Thursday and Friday from 10-7, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 11-4. We always keep our Google business listing updated with our current hours.


Do you sell your clothes online?

Not in the traditional online store way. I purchase all of my fabrics in smaller quantities to keep my designs fresh and original. That said, I regularly sell and ship items to my existing customers; as long as I have your details on hand I’m happy to send you pictures of what I have or custom make something for you. Contact me if you’re interested.


Do you sell other work online?

I do! The best place to find my work for sale online is on the 18 James Street web site. We ship across Canada and the US.


What forms of payment do you accept?

At the shop I take Visa, Mastercard, debit, cash and cheque. At the markets I accept payments by Square and cash. I can also accept payment by eTransfer if agreed upon in advance.


Can you deliver my item?

As a general rule we do not deliver items, but we do make exceptions for larger items like paintings. We can ship items across Canada via Canada Post or the Greyhound bus network at reasonable prices.


Do you do custom work?

I sure do! With your measurement on hand I will gladly make you custom dresses, skirts and tops. I also paint custom cottage and family name signs on a regular basis, and will happily discuss commissions for my paintings. When in doubt, just ask!


Do you teach painting classes?

I do! Please see the 18 James Street web site for upcoming classes.


I still have questions! How can I reach you?
