  • This must be the coolest store in Canada that I have shopped in. But mind you, we went here because of two Robots, meet Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee at the drive way of Primitive Design in Port Hope.....  more »
  • The coolest place on the planet. You can spend hours here. The staff is so sweet and kind. The art is incredible. I was just lost in the creativity and artistry of it all (the owner makes these insane metal sculptures) want to sit in the iron throne? Do it here!
  • Well worth a visit - a treasure trove of quirky and at time thrilling metalwork, carvings and sculptures at reasonable prices. From massive recreations of Transformers, Star Wars characters, dinosaurs and steam punk wild animals to wrought iron flowers, cacti and even the odd Yeti. We loved it. Truly a place to find some design inspiration.
