Cabin Boy has to be one of my favorite shops in Ontario. (I also adore Artifacts in Port Carling.) This hip shop is located in little ol' Midland within a stone's throw of the lakeside docks. Such a pretty main street with an interesting variety of shopping.
From their website:
Cabin Boy opened it's doors in Midland on July 10th, 2004 at 257 King Street and now resides at 251 King Street three doors away. For the last nine years we have been attending to the needs of the passengers on our "ship" here in beautiful Georgian Bay.
Some people might say we're in " the middle of nowhere", but we believe we're in "the middle of everywhere."
Our goal is to impress the most savvy of shoppers that visit our store. As we are now a global village, we believe the best of things should be available to everyone including those in small towns like ours North of Toronto.
In addition to our retail store, our design business is best described as "design facilitation", with services ranging from a one hour colour consultation, to floor plans, elevations and general contracting of residential renovations. We work from Parry Sound to the waters edge in downtown Toronto, and everywhere in between.
"You have to live somewhere...." is our tag line. So, "make your space work beautifully" is our answer.
