Our Story

“Czech It Out” is not just simple wordplay.

Our name is like an antique; there is a story behind it.

Czech: Czechoslovakia is my husband’s birthplace. It is also where we first imported items from when we first opened a shop back in the mid-1990s. Since then, customers have come through our shop to ‘check out’ our items. They then fall in love with one and decide to buy it by bringing it to our ‘check-out’.  

Since then, our shop’s eclectic mix of vintage and antique items has only grown. You’ll check out some expected items but we guarantee you’ll come across some that would never imagine!

We proudly carry a wonderful collection of Indigenous Art: beadwork, paintings, pottery, sculptures, carvings, drums, and anything else we can find. It is a passion of ours to preserve and continue the legacy of these works of art by sharing them with you.

Although I am not an appraiser, I love doing research. It is a joy discovering what something is, its origin, and what its original use was. It is a thrill to unfold the stories behind these items and to share them with others: this is why I enjoy meeting people. Each new person is an opportunity to reveal the family or cultural history of these items. 

I treasure items from the past.  

My husband often remarks I should have been born a hundred years ago!

We opened our present retail shop at its location, 22 Nelson Street West, back in November of 2017. Its location is in the heart of downtown Meaford.  Our town is situated on the shoreline of Georgian Bay between Collingwood and Owen Sound.

Despite the challenges of this past year, we have seen tremendous growth by adding on-line shops on ETSY and SHOPIFY.  

Our shop name at both of these shops is Czech it Out 17.
