Home to pottery, glassware, woodwork, pewter, fine art and sculpture for your home; jewelery and leather goods for both men and women ... all hand crafted by 40 Ontario and Quebec artists. We believe that a handcrafted art piece serves a useful purpose in everyday life; that it is produced in a way that is environmentally friendly and not harmful to our health; and that artisans should receive fair compensation for their creativity and work. Functional art is the blending of form, function, sculpture and fine art. All of these disciplines are called upon to create original objects we can enjoy that are as functional as they are beautiful. Fad: Funktional Art and Design which was located in Bloomfield, Ontario (Prince Edward County) for 10 years is now part of After Stonewall, creating a new Art for Everyday Living shopping experience. Ottawa's very own year round one of a kind gallery.
Home to GLBT literature since 1980. Thousands of titles are showcased in a library setting. We are also expanding our biographies, spirituality and self help sections; bringing in literature for everyone. We are also considering including literature on cooking, wine and the arts.
After Stonewall is a licenced Manufacturer Representive for a number of Prince Edward County wineries (Harwood, Hubbs Creek and Keint-he) in which we feature wine for.
Also featured is Belgian Gourmet Chocolate from Belissima (Brighton, Ontario).
