From an early age, Ethel Chynoweth learned to make native-style art from her mother. Working with beads, leather, porcupine quills and other materials, Ethel is able to express her creativity with one-of-a-kind, hand-made pieces. Much of her work (and exquisite porcupine quill boxes by her mother) are available to purchase in our Mundy’s Bay Gift Shop at the museum or in our online shop.
The Huronia Museum is fortunate to have a large gift shop with items ranging from postcards and candy to moccasins and original artworks. It also boasts one of the largest collections of books about local subjects.
Retail Manager Denise Vallee takes us on a tour of the Mundy’s Bay Gift Shop.
