Welcome to our new Blog & Website!

Anchique is located on Main Street in the historical village of Schomberg, Ontario.


If you haven't visited Schomberg, you must! Schomberg is accessed via Highway 9, which links Orangeville and Newmarket; via Highway 27 linking Barrie and Toronto; and the Lloydtown-Aurora Road. Its main street is York Regional Road 76, a graceful curved avenue separate from the local major highways.  With it's unique shops and restaurants, it's a wonderful day trip destination.

Some of the annual events in Schomberg include the Schomberg Fair, first held in 1851. It is an agricultural fair featuring a variety of events and activities. It is held every year on the last weekend in May.

A more recent annual tradition is A Main Street Christmas. This is held one evening in December, during which people celebrate the holiday season by listening to carols, parades, and viewing ice sculptures, among other things.

When people ask us what Anchique is, we tell them that it is a retail shop/studio that is all about furniture, paint and creativity.  We are proud Stockists of Chalk Paint™ a decorative paint by Annie Sloan.  We carry the full Annie Sloan line of products in our shop and are open 6 days a week.  If we aren't open when you can get here, give us a call, we are usually around and would be happy to let you in!  We hold weekly workshops, instructing people on how to create decorative finishes on their furniture, accessories and in their homes.  What people love about Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan, is that you don't need to strip/sand or prime your pieces before painting them.  This allows you to get straight to the fun!  If you find this hard to believe, come by and visit us and we will show you our shop filled with lots of items finished in Chalk Paint™.  

If you don't want to paint your pieces, don't worry, we also do custom painting including furniture, kitchen cabinets and more.  If you would like a quote on your next paint project, visit our Custom page and follow the instructions.  We can even come to your home to complete the project, depending on the size of it!
