In 2003 Stan Portleys – Antiques & Uniques, was born in the back of a store, just down from their present location in Port Stanley. At the time they dealt with antiques, vintage linens and silver, and a small amount of new giftware. Over the years Stan Portleys has evolved into a destination for unique gift and home décor items, and their Painted Furniture. Many homes and cottages throughout the area have one, two, three or more pieces of their painted furniture incorporated into their interior design. They have even shipped to the eastern seaboard of the United States. Whether it be Urbane Chic, Paris Apartment or cottage style we have met the need of the discriminating home owner.
Bobbie Robinson of Stan Portleys will be presenting a Furniture Finishing Demonstration featuring their van Gogh Chalk Paint Collection on the Idea Stage.

For 20 years Sansin Corporation has pioneered the use of environmentally-friendly water-borne wood protection technologies that deliver outstanding performance. This technology is inspired by a thousand year-old tradition that uses nature’s own ingredients – resins and gums from the heartwood of trees – to deliver sustainable protection. Their objective – to help wood protect itself – is implemented by developing innovative materials and processes which reduce the impact of their coatings on the Environment. Again and again their history has demonstrated that going green actually enhances performance.
Wood is their passion and their commitment to protecting it and the environment is paramount. Their vision is to continually improve their products as well as their environmental practices. As part of their Sansin Second Nature program they are pursuing initiatives such as using alternative green energy, smart car technology, and smart manufacturing processes that move them closer to their objective of operating a sustainable zero waste production facility.
