Hamilton Haunts: Ottawa Street

Sunday 13 November 2016

Somehow it's November and I've yet to post photos from the blogger tour I was invited to by the Ottawa Street BIA back in the summer. Highlighting some of Ottawa Street's shops and restaurants, the tour took local bloggers — and a few from Niagara — to one of #HamOnt's most unique streets, giving us the chance to talk to shop owners and learn a little bit about Ottawa Street's past. 

Petal to the Metal was making its market debut at the Ottawa Street Farmers' Market on the day we visited. They're Ontario's first mobile flower shop, and I've seen them popping up all over the city, most recently at the Hamilton Flea. 

AllSorts Gallery
Sadly enough, AllSorts Gallery is somewhere I've just never visited in nearly a decade in Hamilton. A local artists co-op, it sells local, handmade, and unique artistic gifts. I'll definitely be back in mid-to-late December when I inevitably realize I need to start my holiday shopping!

Antique Avenue
At 8000 square feet, Antique Avenue has been my go-to for unique antiques and reasonably priced records for the past few years. They've recently rid themselves of their incredible vintage book collection, but I won't hold that against them. There are so many other things to keep you busy in Antique Avenue for hours.

Antiques Unlocked
"Hey, Jes. Is that 'not your typewriter?'" Yes, bloggers. Yes, it is.

Remember When Antique Emporium 
The former Avon Theatre opened as a 770-seat theatre called the Avalon in 1941. It became the Avon in 1969 and ceased to be a theatre in 1985. Today it houses Remember When Antique Emporium.


  1. Those are some very nice shops. The typewriters and the old radio are calling to me 'take a trip to Hamilton.' After what was elected President here I, like others, wonder should we move to Canada? I doubt I'll even make it to Hamilton, Montana though.

  3. It's a great article, it's really useful to me, I think it's really useful for many people, let's discuss this with me, maybe each of us will have one way. Recognize differently, hope that all is the right perception.

  6. Having a spouse you love is like having an infinite supply of that resource. Couples who are able to communicate and have sexual encounters that are mutually enriching have longer, happier marriages. Being a safe haven from the storms of life, a loving relationship where difficulties are handled freely and maturely may help you grow into your best self. By using what they've learned in premarital therapy, engaged couples might find a level of emotional connection that exceeds even their idealized childhood memories of their parents' love.
