SPOTLIGHT // Apsley // Shoreline Furniture Co.
Shoreline Furniture Co. is a styling oasis in the heart of Kawartha.
THE PLACE: Midway between Lakefield and Bancroft, a former gas station, cafe and garden shop has been transformed into the charming home of Shoreline Furniture Co. Opened three years ago, Shoreline offers various styles of furniture, accessories and décor, from lake house, cottage and rustic to contemporary. “We try to have a little bit for everyone,” says owner Jessica Tucker. She studied visual merchandising at Sheridan College and worked for a Peterborough furniture store for 10 years before opening her own shop. “The reason I opened this store close to home is we had a daughter three years ago. When I went back to work in Peterborough, I was spending more time on the road than I was seeing her. I thought something closer to home would be ideal.”
