Two women with great taste, tons of ideas, and not enough hours in the day.

Welcome to the Camp Ho-Ba-Chee blog.

On July 1, 2010 Camp Ho-Ba-Chee launched a new location in an antique co-op called Nostalgic Journey located on Hwy 7 just east of Peterborough, Ontario. 

In less than 24 hours we transformed a bare empty space with a gray concrete floor
into a lovely, fresh and inviting space that Martha would approve of.

First we painted the floor with a checkerboard pattern.

Then we brought in the display elements - an antique wooden door and screen door, a whitewashed pantry cupboard from an old cottage, a drop leaf table which was a family piece, and some colourful painted furniture.

And then the goodies came out. It was fun arranging the pieces we had brought into themes and colour blocks. Here's our debut:

If you're in the area come check us out. Nostalgic Journey is open 7 days a week July thru August.
