Walrus and Carpenter Closing

Sadly, we are announcing that the ‘’Best little Gift House on the Prairie’’ a.k.a. WALRUS & CARPENTER has not found a new owner and so thus we will be further discounting our remaining stock plus selling our display and merchandising units etc. and some privately owned collectible and antique units and furniture.

APRIL 1 st our days of operation will expand to being open from Wednesday through to Saturday. Our hours will remain the same; 11 am to 5 pm weekdays and 11 am to 4 pm on Saturdays.

SO, beginning Saturday, April 1, ALL STOCK THAT IS NOW AT 30 % off will drop to 40% OFF and those items that have NOT been on sale will now be offered at 20% OFF. The 20% off will include Padraig Slippers, Rocky Mt. Soap Products, boxed Teas, Dips, etc!

You might be an ‘’APRIL FOOL’’ if you don’t take advantage of this!

After the middle of April, stock that is remaining will be further reduced and if necessary reduced again at the beginning of May. We anticipate that by the middle of May, the shop doors will be closed.

Collectables and Antiques are NOT INCLUDED in the sale as such but may be sale priced on an individual basis. Wall and display units will also be priced to sell but not included in the overall discount prices. NO GST will be charged on these items.

The shop and lot will be up for sale either as another business, or to upgrade to livable conditions or whatever suits the buyer. The property is zoned either commercial or residential. Please contact Jane at Remax Reality for further information.

‘’The time has come the Walrus said to talk of many things. Of shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and Kings, and a Gift Shop in the old Red house, filled with the finest things.’’ 

As this may be the final news from this ‘’old red house’’ We would like to thank you for your support over the past 27 years and look forward to having you drop in to say farewell and hopefully participate in these Great Savings that we are offering.

Please keep in touch with our FACEBOOK page as this will be your best way to keep track of the discounts and progression in the next month or two.

Thank you for 27 wonderful years!!
Blessings on you!

 Marlene, Family and Staff of the Walrus and Carpenter

New Open Hours

We’re still here for now! Our future plans have changed a bit which will give you a little more time to take advantage of our present SALES!

WE WILL NOT BE CLOSING JANUARY 31! Instead the ‘’girls’’ will be opening the shop two days a week –  Wednesdays AND Fridays from Feb 1 to March 31. We will also be OPENING an hour later at 11 am and  closing at 5 pm.

Unless the store changes hands during this time, beginning April 1, WE WILL be dropping prices even lower to clear away all remaining stock AND display units! The plan will be to have the store empty by the end of April or just into May. It will be a sad time for all of us, but life is full of changes and all change is not bad. I shall be remembering this while I find some sun and rest on my holiday!

Thank you everyone for your support and the many acknowledgements we receive daily of how much this shop will be missed!

Please call the shop if you have any questions 403 783-5355. (Call only on Wednesdays or Fridays during store hours as we do not have an answering machine.)

Happy New Year!


With the New Year come changes at Walrus & Carpenter. As most of you know the shop has been for sale and the price lowered several times to entice a new owner or owners. The option has also just been added to lease to own.

Thankfully, we had a good Christmas month here despite our Alberta Economy.
For now we will be working on reducing the amount of stock at the shop. EVERYTHING except a small selection of stock will be ON SALE AT 30 % OFF until the end of January. The only stock not included is our Teas and drinks, gourmet dips and seasonings, Padraig Slippers, and Rocky Mt. Soap company products.

DSCF0076Presently ANYTHING in the veranda is at 50% OFF plus a clothing rack at  50% OFF!! UNLESS something significant happens in the next few weeks, WE WILL BE CLOSING JANUARY 31 while I enjoy a much needed holiday in a warmer climate for a month or two where I will ‘’practice’’ retirement!


My plan is to not reopen until APRIL and if at that time nothing solid has transpired with the shop. I will be liquidating the rest of the stock and just putting the house and lot for sale.

Please call Jane Wierzba at REMAX Reality at 403 358-8770 or click here for the details on the shop if you or anyone you know might be interested in this business. It would be so nice to see this shop continue. I know there will be many disappointed customers if we need to close.

Also LIKE us on FACEBOOK, so you can keep track of further discounts and relative updates over the next few months! Don’t miss out on our news!!

cold weather thermometerWith the weather forecast sounding a bit better than it has been, we hope you take advantage of these great sales before Jan 31 when the doors will be closed.  Stock has been moving quite well out of the shop so get in here as soon as you can for best selection.

Feel free to share this email and please call the shop if you have any questions on stock or email thewalrusandcarpenter@hotmail.com.
