“Much more than an old tin shed!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

I've had the opportunity to travel across this great country. The Old Tin Shed is on the top of my list when it comes to a place full of great global and local products plus friendly staff! This is where I go when I want to buy something unique for loved ones. If you are travelling through the area then it is a shopping experience not to be missed.

“Amazing gifts, clothing and accessories!”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

I always find wonderfully unique items here. Whimsical and original gifts, plus lots of fun clothing, jewellery and handbags too. I never leave empty handed and the staff is so helpful and friendly. An absolute must-visit store in Bancroft.

“The Old Tin Shed... a must visit”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is by far the best store in Bancroft (on par with the best anywhere I've been).
Great selection of product at excellent prices. You can lose yourself looking around and shopping. Dagney and Janis (the owners) and their trained staff have a touch with customer service. You are valued and respected and we always enjoy the experience. Make the drive or be sure to stop in... we love it.

“Great gift shop”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We went into Bancroft from our rented cottage on a rainy day and stumbled upon this lovely store. Lots of neat stuff - I ended up buying some costume jewellery. The sales staff was very nice and helpful.
