In 1999 we bought the Old Flour Grist Mill on a acre lot on the Railroad Station Grounds @ 1 North St in Courtland, Ontario. It was 10,000 sq ft and needed total restoration! In the beginning we were going to use the warehouse to house our antique stoves but soon realized that the warehouse was way to large for just that so we began to put together a plan for another business to compliment our stoves. After doing much research and being Vendor's in a variety of Antique Malls in 2001 we came up with the plan to start the Courtland Antique & Collectible Warehouse. In 2002 we started the renovations on Phase #1 of the mall project. Our goal was to open the first half of the mall which we opened in May 2002. Soon after we opened, Phase #1 began to quickly fill up. Then in 2005 we realized that it was time to start the renovations for Phase # 2 as we needed more space. In 2006 renovations of Phase 2 began and we opened at the end of that year. Lots of parking for bus tour groups.
Richard & Donna Vank are also the owners of Grate Restoration Stoveworks & Country Collectibles which is also a part of the Courtland Antique Mall. Our love for vintage stoves moved us to establish Grate Restoration Stoveworks in 1998. We started with vintage stoves and have since that time grown into re-conditioning and selling top quality name brand certified modern airtight woodstoves and fireplace inserts. We are also Dealers for 2 Amish Stove Manufacturers and carry their lines of 6 different certified wood cookstoves and 2 woodstoves that are on display in the Antique Mall for customers to view and book their orders. We have over 200 stoves to included very ornate and some museum pieces as well as modern woodstoves. Stoves from the mid 1800's to now.
When visiting the Antique Mall stop by and check out our late 1800's Barbershop Display set up right beside the General Store.
We look foward to your visit soon ... For a unique antique shopping experience!
