THE PLACE: Harris's Furniture & Antiques is growing more user-friendly with recent changes to accentuate bedroom furishings, mattresses, sofas and wooden Mennonite furniture.  "What we do hasn't changed but we are more efficient," says Dean Harris.  "We continue striving to perfect what we do, which is providing excellent customer service and value for money spent." He and his wife, Colleen, opened the store at the north end of Parry Sound in 1982.  Its large front porch brims with antiques and collectibles.  Inside, separate galleries showcase all the new furnishings that any Home, Cottage or Condo would need.

THE STYLE: They call their styel Relaxed & Casual.  "It's for comfortable northern living.  It's hardy and durable," says Dean.  It includes sturdy upholstered furniture, antiques, wooden tables, chairs and shelves, as well as repurposed creations.  "We've broadened our scope of Mennonite furniture," he says.  "We buy it unfurnished and finish it in our finishing shop."

THE PRODUCTS: The store emphasizes Canadian'made products that deliver excellent value.  Canadian offerings include sofas by www.suuperstylefurniture.com a Toronto furniture maker for nearly 50 years, mattresses by www.dreamstarbedding.com and reclining sofas and chairs from www.elran.com.  "We believe in Canada," Dean says.  "We believe Canadian-made products are among the top.  You get more value for your money from the Canadian lines we carry."

WHAT'S HOT: Harris's original creations include pop & milk crate furnishings, repurposed canoes, sleighs and toboggans.  The shop also up-cycles old dressers to make modern bathroom vanities with a vintage look.  "We pretty much sell everything we make," says Dean.  Adjustable beds, some with massage features, are new a new product to the store.  "They're a therapeutic bed for our aging population and the discerning shopper."

FAVOURITES: Collectible signs and advertising, especially for gasoline and oil, are Dean's favourites.  "It's challenging to find, rewarding to buy and a pleasure to own." It's great, he says, to sell a piece of nostalgia to an eager collector or someone decorating a man cave, office or recreation room.  If you are selling, Dean is an active buyer.
