Cabin Pressure at Thrift Warehouse!

On Thursday, August 21st, there was a flurry of activity as the film crew from “Colin and Justin’s Cabin Pressure,” moved into the Warehouse. You may know Colin and Justin, the Scottish design experts who are regularly featured on Cityline, Entertainment Tonight Canada and City TV’s Breakfast Television.

Turns out they’ve bought a cabin in the Highlands that they are renovating for their new series “Colin and Justin’s Cabin Pressure!” So in they both came to the Thrift Warehouse to scope out furniture pieces and other decorating options. I won’t tell you what they got – it would spoil the surprise … you’ll have to wait till the episode airs.
Their website says Colin’s and Justin’s goal is “simply this: to share good things with good people.” Indeed they are very friendly, informal and funny. Cammy and I were interviewed about the Warehouse and SIRCH. Learning Cammy’s name is Camille, Colin put the back of his hand to his forehead dramatically and exclaimed “‘Camille’ … that’s the best name!” The pair are very engaging, whether talking to each other or to others. They cheerfully talked with customers in the store. No one knew they were coming (other than us) so there were quite a few double-takes and excited whispering.

Here’s a photo of Cammy and me with Colin and Justin. And a picture of a table, (which Karen Gustafson had painted with blackboard paint), with their signatures. Keep your eye out – they will be coming back to the Warehouse on other occasions.
