Happily retired, happily married and happily the Mom to two grown children, I've spent the past few years exploring my creative side and realizing how much pleasure I get from creating stuff....all kinds of stuff. I love wood burning, beaded work, making mobiles and during the past year I have started working with stained glass. I'm very excited about bringing all these passions together ....and maybe throwing a little humour in there as well!
What kind of things will you find at Bonnie Day Creations? Abstract stained glass, suncatchers of all kinds, vases, cutting boards, wooden switch plates, signs, gift and treasure boxes, zipper pulls, ornaments and the list goes on.
I've enjoyed being a vendor at Queens since May 2019 and have been learning so much along the way. It's a great way to keep myself from getting into trouble! I've recently changed the company name and I'm in the process of setting up a Facebook page with photos of some of my creations..... so there's more to come......
Something else that makes selling at Queens so fun is that my longtime buddy has teamed up with me and we share the booth....so now I'll pass it over to Jo so she can tell you a bit about herself and what she's selling....
My story is a simple one. I landed on “The Queen’s” doorstep by way of “Bonnie Day Creations”. Bonnie is my long time childhood friend and has agreed to join forces and share her booth with me... stronger together.
Being retired has afforded me the time to finally “clean house” and let someone else enjoy a selection of my costume jewellery. I also have a variety of ladies and men’s jackets (some leather and suede), belts, shoes/boots and handbags in the clothing section. Sizes tend to range slightly, but most items are large and x-large.
Now that I’ve “Taken Care of Business”, it’s time for me to pursue my more creative side. Stay tuned... and healthy!

ps. We should mention that both of us are fortunate to have summer residences but with no internet, so you may not hear much from us during the summer months
I have been a collector for many years and got my start with many items handed down through the family. My focus is mostly Victorian china, transferware, English cups and saucers, tea pots, dessert plates and cake stands for High Tea, pink and green depression glass, pottery (McCoy, Sylvac, Fiesta ware, Roseville, Medalta), vintage Pyrex, mid-century style cotton/linen tea towels and tablecloths, Westclox alarm clocks, mid-century planters and flower pots, Cornflower Glass including Candlewick Glass items, and Chalet Art Glass.
The fun of collecting is sharing with others who enjoy these pieces as much as I have. Passing them on to others is all part of the process. I feel that I am doing my part to preserve a little bit of our history.

Hi, I am a local artisan who has lived in the Prospect Ontario area for over 40 years. The creation of my hairbands, scrunchies and mist were inspired by my grandchildren.
They were designed by me and are 100% Canadian handcrafted from cotton to absorb the essential oil mist. A resealable slider pouch is provided to store the hairbands, scrunchie and elastics each time they are worn to retain the essential oil fragrance within the fabric.
The mist is made using pure natural essential oils in two fragrances of Lavender & Vanilla and Tea Tree, Peppermint, Rosemary and Eucalyptus. The mist was formulated by a chemist I hired and is mild enough to also use on your body provided you carefully read and adhere to the directions, warning and precautions provided.
The hairbands come in three styles to include a bow, braided and french knot in twelve fabrics of Moon & Stars, Love Bugs, Twinkle, Forest Friends, Dragon Fly, Mermaid, Butterflies, Yummy, Unicorn, Galaxy, Nature and Foxy.
If you are interested in a fabric that it not displayed, do not hesitate to contact me at
Jim MacCraken, owned and operated a music store on Rideau Street in Ottawa between 1974-2005. Next onto a one-stop music sub distributor company called J.Mac Music, where he set up in Ottawa. This warehouse sold to independent music stores in Ontario and Quebec. Then closed in 2015.
Latest chapter started winter 2017. He rented a small 500 square foot warehouse in Perth to handle the routing music collections, CDs and Albums. Buying good titles and hard to find titles from the many collectors and clients he dealt with over many years.
He only sells, top "A" condition products, thoroughly inspected and cleaned using the same cleaning method told to him by one fo Ontario's top sellers of used vinyl.
He also has been very fortunate finding CD and vinyl collections, with such great titles, that he personally collects and listens to them dailty.
This is the third chapter of his music business life, finding excellent titles to offer for sale on CDs, Vinyl and some Cassettes, as well.
This is his 50th year of selling music, and maybe the most fun yet.

Anxiety Focus Cards are a tool used to have those who have anxiety and panic attacks. They come as a set of 40 different cards. Oneside has a black and white photo, with blue healing orbs strategically placed on it. Each card has a different amount of orbs. On the back of each card are instructions for use.
Take 2-3 cards with you, everywhere you go. They are approximately the size of a cell phone screen. When you experience anxiety, panic, a PTSD trigger, take out one of your cards and follow the instructions. Count your blue healing orbs on your card of choice. In between counting each one hold your breath for a count of 4. By the time you get to the 3rd, 4th healing orb your brain realizes you are doing your breathing instead of it.
Your focus is redirected to your breathing, and the physical symptoms that come with an Anxiety attack etc...they start to subside. Anxiety Focus Cards may also be helpful for those with insomnia and OCD. They are also a great tool for meditation.
Maxine Brown is the creator of this tool. She was raised in the fostercare system, and used this method to cope. She created these cards to help those like herself. She has suffered with severe anxiety attacks and PTSD stemming from the abuse of a family member.
Today, she is a proud mum to 4 grown children, 1 grandchild, and is a well known local business owner.
When I met my wife, we looked to do something together. This started us out on a long and varied trip in the crafts field. We started doing macramé and then ended up with a craft shop in Stittsville where we gave lessons.
The craft store had several beads made from ceramic. I knew my Aunt had a kiln in New York City which I was able to obtain. This migrated us from macramé to ceramics.
I gave up my garage to create a studio where we continued teaching, this time ceramics. I was also pouring molds and selling them to other ceramics studios around Ottawa and the valley.
We spent part of our retirement wintering in Arizona. This led us to beading, jewelry making, wire wrapping and into healing stones.
Our semi precious stones come from all over the world; Madagascar, India, Brazil, Peru, Uganda, and many other places.
We have been doing this for about 15 years. Over that time we have met so many good and interesting people, it makes all our effort worthwhile.
We now have outlet stores Osgoode, Calabogie, Eganville and of course Carleton Place.
Missy Magoo is the nickname I was given by my aunts and uncles when I was a toddler, and it has stuck with me a long time! Even then I was inspired by interesting and shiny things, so luckily I've been able to find my creative outlet with jewellery and other crafts.
I love to make old things new, and to add some unique sparkle to your every day! Watches, spoons, and keys are my favourite, but I also enjoy chainmail, beading, and alcohol ink painting just to name a few!
I make and sell Gourmet Salsa in 4 flavours, mild, medium, hot and Mom's Wrath (Very HOT).
There are no added sugars or preservatives in any of the Salsas. It is a chunky melody of fresh vegetables. I have been making salsa for 16 years. For many years family and friends have told me "this is great you should sell it."
In 2019 I started my business as a hobby and it has grown so much and fast since the.n

All products from Rosa's Bath Boutique are handcrafted and made by myself in small batches to ensure quality. All ingredients are from certified suppliers and high quality. Rosa's Bath Boutique started off as a small hobby, and then quickly grew into a small business.
As a Registered Nurse, I always looked forward to my bath time after a long, hard day. What is more relaxing than a luxurious bath or shower with great products that make you feel great! My journey started off with melt & pour soap and then with lots of research and education, ventured to bath bombs, cold process soaps and much much more.
I enjoy experimenting with new recipes and my children are my inspiration. They are my best critics, if they don't approve- it's back to the workshop. Each product is tested by several people before it is added to my collection.
I am a mother of four, now at home full time. When I am not taking care of my domestic tasks, you can find me in my studio creating practical and beautiful uses for items with history. I am also known to scour thrift stores for items to repurpose and give new life.
We make hand-made bath products, such as soap, bath bombs, bath powders, and sugar scrubs that are available in a selection of fragrances.
We also make other products that are great gift ideas or items that you can treat yourself! Some of these items include gel candles (unscented), other candles made from bee’s wax and soya was, sachets, one use soap petals and hot/cold packs for your body and your eyes.
If you have a particular fragrances that you like and don’t see available on this site, or if you wish to order gifts for showers and other celebrations, please contact:
“Twice New” – is my passion and love for all things pretty, affordable and excellent quality. Many years ago, I worked for Eaton’s. It was during my 9 years as an Advertising Supervisor/Administrative Assistant, I developed a love for nice clothing and household décor and collectibles. As many know, Eaton’s was a great department store for quality and they founded their business on “Goods Satisfactory or Money Refunded”. Unfortunately, like many Canadian Department Store retailers they were unable to compete with BIG BOX stores and declared bankruptcy, hence the reason why I left to become a Communications Clerk/Dispatcher for Ottawa Police. 22 years later I am still employed at OPS as a Report Analyst but I missed the rewards of dealing one on one with people and beautiful things.
For many years, I had always enjoyed thrift stores and second hand shopping. It became a hobby which grew into collecting many beautiful and precious items. I began to realize I couldn’t keep shopping for myself yet I just loved the “Thrill of the Hunt”! One day I went to a local market and noticed many items on a table which I had at home. I thought, wow, I could sell some of my own stuff or better yet I could still shop and look for treasures and make a few dollars along the way. I started small selling in a couple outdoor flea markets, then grew to 613 flea at Aberdeen Pavillion in the Glebe. A friend mentioned Almonte Antiques and Collectibles. I started there with a small curio cabinet in 2017, which grew to a 10 x 10 ft retail spot and finally just this November opened a second spot of Vintage Inspired Clothing and Accessories! In between all of this I heard about “The Queens Makers and Antique Market” and opened there in November 2018!
Here you will find “Twice New” Clothing, Accessories, Jewellery, Coats, Boots etc. all at affordable prices, excellent quality and name brands. I strive to provide nice, attractive, classic, pieces that will last in your wardrobe for several years. Kilts from Scotland and United Kingdom; Vintage Furs and Hats; Vintage Jewellery and Hat pins; Arctic Parkas and Angora Shawls and Scarves; Some Sherman Jewellery and other vintage Crystal brooches.
