We are celebrating Women In Business in our beautiful Downtown Lindsay!
Lacey Ball opened her beautiful, primitive decor store, Olde Mill Primitives, originally in 2014 and eventually moved the business to our downtown in 2017.
Olde Mill’s primitive decor, “combines rustic and classic elements”, showcasing that Early American and farmhouse style, that is always so warm and inviting. When you enter the store, you are greeted with the alluring scent of the store’s candles, accompanied by the soft, subdued lighting, that makes you feel like you’re in someone’s home or cottage. The style of furniture appeals to both feminine and masculine sensibilities, showcasing the strong, substantial, but attractive look we all love in Kawartha Lakes with well-made furniture, beams and other woodwork, with many pieces being fabricated by Lacey’s husband. You will see his handiwork in the family’s new business venture opening today, Olde Mill Candle Co., located on Kent Street, by The Olympia Restaurant Cafe & Bar!
Some of us at Cathy Allan were lucky enough to see the new store location before its opening, and you will not be disappointed! The store embodies all of the accents that you love about its original location, but still has its own gorgeous look with soft, light colours, high ceiling, strong, beautiful beams, attractive woodwork and lighting. All of these features showcase the amazing products from captivating scents of candles, melts, potpurri, etc. There are also artificial candles as well for those of us who like the look, but don’t want to replenish candles as often. Lacey is also in tune with the health and environmental consciousness of today’s world, offering soy candles, for another alternative. A lot of these candles are therapeutic as well, like essential oils that we all love. You have to stop by and see these items for yourselves!
Lacey is not only a smart and talented business owner, who knows her target market and what they like, but she’s just likable as well. To meet Lacey is to love her. She embodies the warmth and character that you see highlighted in her store locations. She also surrounds herself with similar, like-minded people, many of whom are family, which shows her strong values and love for family.
Thank you Lacey for settling with your family in our beautiful downtown, bringing us your talent and warmth that we so love and always want to demonstrate!
