Profile Last Updated: February 24, 2009
The hamlet of Bragg Creek is as picturesque as can be, with a village feel about it. Archer’s Antiques in opened its doors for business in 1989, specializing in Northern American antique furniture and restorations. These skills and know-how were passed to the present owner by his grandfather, back in the day when they attended antique shows together in Alberta.
The Bragg Creek Cabinetmaker
The man behind Archers Antiques is constantly perfecting his craft as a traditional cabinetmaker as well, and stands by the authenticity of the heirloom pieces he sells. Every piece is also restored with painstaking detail, the result of constant study of the history behind the Canadian and French Canadian primitives and art and crafts furniture. The shop sells mostly solid wood and some arts and crafts veneers from the 1920s and 1930s.
Restored 1912 Arts and Crafts Shop
Whether by choice or chance, Archers Antiques fits well in its 1912 arts and crafts basement shop. There’s a separate entrance for customers, and the warm welcome of an old brick fireplace is a cheerful greeting on a cold day. People who know Canadian and French Canadian antique furniture say they have not seen so much of a good thing in one place.
