A Family Tradition

Archer’s Antiques is a family business and was started in Port Perry, Ontario, in 1959. Between Steve and his Grandfather, the Archer family has been buying, selling and restoring early North American furniture and artifacts for over 60 years. Steve’s restoration skills were developed in his youth by working with his grandfather. Steve’s grandfather was renowned for his skills, and his reputation drew customers to his Port Perry shop from miles away- many from as far as Toronto, over 3 hours away. This popularity and quality reputation continues with his grandson, with customers from near and far seeking the specialized collection curated by Steve. In the 1980s Steve moved west, settling in Southern Alberta, and taking the business with him. Between the 1980s and early 2000s, Steve carried on the tradition and travelled across North America looking for treasures to add to the ever-growing collection for the store. 

Still going strong today

Steve has finally retired from restoring antiques for customers, but he continues work, whether it’s rebuilding furniture, restoring finishes or rewiring lamps for the store. These days the antiques come to him, through reputation and from downsizing collectors, past customers, and recommendations. Rarely does he take a vacation without coming home with an incredible find that he came across on his trip. 

Today, you can discover the most recent finds in Bragg Creek, AB. From the shores of Lake Simcoe in Northern Ontario to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and everywhere in between. Archer’s Antiques is located a half hour west of Calgary, in the basement of a fully restored 1912 Arts and Crafts home.
