The UnconVentional mOOse

A favourite daycation is to head north and visit The Unconventional Moose.  This is a wonderful store to explore on Hwy 7 between Madoc and Tweed, less than a half hour drive from our house.

The owners describe it as a boutique of sorts with a wildlife theme and a rustic flair.  Take a look at their website or their Facebook page

kOsmO is the The UnconVentional mOOse and he resides over the pond.

You won’t be able to resist taking lots of photos of kOsmO.  At different times of the year he has been known to dress up!

I remember when the store was called the Mohawk Trading Post … many years ago.  In fact it was owned by the grandparents of one of our daughter’s friends.  A change of owners brought a moose and a new name and then a new location.  It moved from Hwy 37 to a lovely location not too far away on the north side of Hwy 7.  It’s an old motel converted into the store and some rental accommodations.

Browsisng around the outside there are some lovely gardens and a beautiful pond.

Inside you will find gifts of all sorts … moccasins, boots, clothing, decorations for inside and outside, toys, games, and so much more. There are lots of quirky tee-shirts with fun sayings on them.

On this visit we purchased a weather vane for the corner of the deck.  It’s perfect for our back yard which is very bird friendly.  You can see a smaller weather vane on top of one of the feeder poles (which is a recycled umbrella pole).

So if you are driving in my part of Ontario, specifically Hwy 7 between Madoc and Tweed, and you see this sign encouraging you to pull over, be sure you do.  You won’t regret it. This wonderful store is changing all the time, new stock, new gardens, new features, be sure to stop and say hi.
