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

Shop Early for Christmas

Tis the Season to be Jolly…..fa la la la la!

bagHappiness might include getting your Christmas Shopping done early! To help you with that, we will be open 7 days a week in December until Christmas Day. That means that Sunday, Dec 4, 11, and 18 the shop will be open from 11 am to 4 pm to accommodate your shopping needs!


We have a surplus of those big, beautiful PONOKA AFGHANS that need to be loved and enjoyed. So we are offering them at 50 percent Off until sold out! That means this locally designed regular priced $125.00 afghan is now $62.50 plus GST. This might be the PERFECT GIFT for those hard to buy for people on your list, especially if they have any connections to Ponoka. We can even arrange for shipping by calling Marlene at 403 783-5355 during store hours.

Please LIKE us on FACEBOOK so that we can keep you up to date on any changes to the Walrus & Carpenter during this season. This will include any ‘’impromptu’’ SALE DAYS right after Christmas or maybe even before. But there will NOT be another newsletter going out until late December or early January……so join us on FACEBOOK so as not to miss out!

Walrus and CarpenterBesides being open for Sundays in December, we will also be open until 8 pm for the week proceeding Dec. 25.
Then on Dec. 26 we will be open for a
Big Boxing Day Sale!!

Sharing your hearts and homes with those less fortunate is a great way to find fulfillment and joy this season!

So, from WALRUS &CARPENTER, we DO wish you all a
