We read nothing but great things about this store, so we decided to stop by on our tour of Ile d'Orleans. Although the store had not officially opened for the summer when we visited in late May, the owners were kind enough to let us in (they were landscaping around the store). We ended up buying a bottle opener made from a rail spike, which was really cool.
Overall, even though the store hadn't fully opened, the owners treated us well and we ended up buying a nice souvenir!
Lovely Ironwork and Hospitality

When we visited (right after Labor Day), the Forge did not seem to be open. But one of the owners came down from the nearby house and showed us around. We really appreciated that. The ironwork done there is so excellent. Apparently they may be nearing retirement. What a loss that will be.
Pricy, but Impressive Work

We did end up buying something, so obviously we liked the work. Very nice work with interior and exterior applications. Handrails and gates were simple to ornate. Lots of tables, shelves and wall decorations. There are some other artists' items displayed. There is a nice small museum at the site that is interesting. We didn't spend the time to view the video. There was an English version. Easy to get to from Quebec. This seemed to be a fairly unique place.
Elegant iron work

We were amazed by the quality of not only the iron work (beautiful serving dishes, lamps, gates; but also the ceramics displayed with it. Downstairs is the actual forge, and we were able to meet the artist Guy Bell who was very gracious.

We custom ordered a king bed frame from this fantastic artist back in 2000. The bed has been nothing but unbelievable. It has truly been a piece of furniture that we will cherish and pass down to our children. When we visited the forge we saw work he had done for a gate for a beautiful estate. We adapted that design into our headboard and footboard. Quality beyond belief.
