IMG_9509Olives and Bananas Wool Shop opened on October 17th, 2017 in the Waterfront Business District of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Located at 49 Cumberland Street South near the intersection of Pearl Street and Water Street, we’re just a block away from Thunder Bay’s waterfront park, Prince Arthur’s Landing. Our shop is surrounded by vibrant restaurants and local businesses.

The shop is put together using second hand upcycled furniture all painted using chalk paint. The vision for the shop was to be light, bright, and full of colour. The location couldn’t be better with three large west facing windows offering constant indirect light. IMG_9069IMG_9047 (1)IMG_9502
