Ground Waves is one of those iconic shops that seems to have an incredible variety of merchandise within its walls. There's children's toys, jewelry, household linens, decorative items (indoors and out), kitchen ware, glasses, and novelty gifts. Not to mention some very nice lines of lotions, soaps and scents. Literally, there is a little bit of something for everyone. Barb and Bobbi and all the rest of the staff do a fantastic job of bringing in new items, either seasonal, or any time, and arranging them beautifully. Located in Code's Mill, Perth, ON, this picturesque shop is definitely one my destinations when going to Perth.
Here's what they say about themselves: "From home decor items and one of a kind gifts, Ground Waves make shopping for home and gift inviting, fun and simple." Also, "We carry over 100 local and Canadian product lines, as well as others from around the world."
One of their newest items is something I can't rave enough about: Silicone lids. Designed by Charles Viancin, these are the most useful kitchen items you can own. Literally. They take the place of cooking pot lids or plastic wrap, and can be microwaved, refrigerated, or baked (up to 400 F). I find them indispensable for covering bowls and casseroles, without the fear of using plastic wrap. They come in an assortment of sizes, designs and colours, and will be coming out in a couple of months with all new colours, like purple. They're also created to look like flowers, banana leaves, snowflakes, to name a few. So not only are they functional, but fun with a sense of style.
My advice is, if you're looking for something special, either for yourself or someone else, Ground Waves is the place to go.
