Many of our clients need just a few extras for their home but often make the wrong buying decisions that just don’t work. We know where to shop, and we know what will work in your home. We work with your budget and always endeavour to get our clients the best deals in town!

Easy. Quick. Affordable! It’s what we do, and we’re good at it.

Personal Shopping Q&A

   What is it?

A personal shopper helps a client by accompanying them while shopping or by shopping on their behalf, giving advice and making suggestions for everything from flooring selections to throw cushion.

Home décor items add an affordable update to any home.

   Who uses it?

  • Those who want assistance due to time and money spent on past decorating mistakes.
  • Lack the time or desire to shop for their home’s needs.
  • Are due for a change.
  • Know what they like but have trouble ‘pulling it all together.
  • Are busy but love to have their home looking good and want someone else to do the leg work – sourcing, looking for styles, colours, fabrics.
  • Have full lives and they don’t have time to shop.
  • Aren’t confident about so many decisions and having it all come together.
  • When is it used?

  • Updating and renovating.
  • Home makeovers.
  • Designing and staging to sell.
  • Model home staging.
  • Where is it used?

  • Homes large and small, apartments, condos and summer homes.
  • For every room in the house as well as decks, patios and balconies.
  • Once we become familiar with your personal tastes and budget, we will make practical purchases that will create the home of your dreams.
  • Why is it used?

  • We do the leg work.
  • Having someone shop for you can be pretty enlightening.
  • I have a long time relationship with many of my clients, often working with them on selling a home and then ultimately as they are settling into their new home, or at different stages of renovating or finishing.

    Recent clients have torn down their old family cottage and I’ve worked with them in the original planning stages, with cabinet placement and design, lighting, flooring, counter tops, backsplash and paint colours throughout, working with existing furniture, family life style and personalities.

    How is it used?

  • After meeting and getting acquainted with the client, their lifestyle, tastes and style preferences Mary Ellen takes the anxiety and frustration out of decorating or remodeling, with affordable options.

    With a budget friendly approach to redesign or decorate a whole home we can shop together so we can discuss options on the spot, or Mary Ellen will shop for you and bring her ideas to your home to discuss the possibilities, returning as often as necessary to get the job done to every client’s satisfaction.

    What’s In It For Me?

  • Enhance ambience with lighting and accessories for every room in the house.
  • Make your space even more your own, with decorative accessories like wall art, wall decor, and tapestries.
  • Create a bedroom oasis with bedding, shams or throw pillows.
  • Mary Ellen offers quality, professional service at reasonable prices for any home décor or design problem, focusing on your tastes and style preferences.
