Joyce Edwards is the proud new owner of Winking Pedlar 2011

The Winking Pedlar has a new owner

“I’ve always wanted my own little gift store,” says Edwards, “after partnering with Sue for a year, I made the decision to just do it!”

“We just kept coming here, so we moved and now the whole family lives here,” stated Joyce Edwards of the move her family made to Princeton seven years ago.

Edwards has worked in the insurance/accounting field for 45 years and is happily looking forward to retirement in August of this year.

“I’ve always wanted my own little gift store,” says Edwards, “after partnering with Sue for a year, I made the decision to just do it!”

Edwards plans to spend her retirement running her own little gift store. Antiques brought in from Sue Alton will still be a feature in the Winking Pedlar, and Edwards plans to bring in some reproduction furniture and more unique gift items.

Glasswear, etched and or painted by Edwards herself, specialty coffee and teas, stationery, costume jewellery are just a mere few of the different items available at the store.

Edwards’ husband Ross, has some of  his own creative talents featured as well.  Pine tables and shelves, game-boards and jewellery boxes—all crafted by his own hand are available for purchase.

Check out the all natural products section—items from “Brown Road Soy Candle Company,” room scents, candle tarts and tins, everything you need for a natural deodorizer or  scent (like vanilla), just to set the mood of your room.

“Rocky Mountain Soap Company” has a variety of items for you to choose from and the baby section— “Dimple Skins Naturals,” has smaller sample packages to purchase for trial before you buy in the larger quantity.

Edwards is excited to offer new and unique products to her customers and is very open to any suggestions you may have.

Stop in at 279 Bridge Street to peruse “this little store with character,” and be sure to join Edwards for her Customer Appreciation Days event on July 15 and 16.  Refreshments will be served and Edwards will pay the HST on all sales for these two days only.

Congratulations Joyce, and Happy Retirement?
