Local Businesses

The businesses below are located in District 4 of the Municipality of Yarmouth or have a link to the district. If we want to enrich our lives, build sustainable communities and contribute to our economic growth I can think of no better way than by supporting local businesses. Need something? Then make these enterprises your first choice—they have great products and provide great service.


Yaciuk’s Antiques, Clocks and Collectibles

Yaciuk's Antiques and CollectiblesI love the sound of the clocks in this wonderful antiques barn. David Yaciuk knows a lot about clocks. He’s probably Nova Scotia’s expert on cuckoo clocks. When he was about five years old he knew he wanted to follow his passion for antiques and fine things, particularly clocks, music boxes and Hummel sculptures. He was in his early twenties when he opened his first antique shop in Annapolis Royal. We are so fortunate that he chose to move to our area and that his partner Ken had such a wonderful barn to transform into this magical place. If you really want to get a sense of the magic be sure to visit when it’s decorated in late November for the holidays.

Bill Curry, Conservation Photographer

Bill Curry PhotographyBill is a friend and colleague with whom I share volunteer interests, most notably Old Stones and the Nova Scotia Colony of Mayflower Descendants. He is a retired educator and a proud grandfather with a passion for photography. Bill graduated from the New York Institute of Photography and is an accredited award-winning member of the Professional Photographers of Canada. In his words I take photographs because I love the outdoors and I want to share with others images of the outdoors that capture the environment, those who live in that environment, and how the environment shapes and is shaped by the lives of those living in it. Some of Bill’s work may be seen at the Yarmouth Waterfront GalleryShackwhacky Art and PhotographyCharlotte Lane Restaurant, the ViewPoint Gallery and occasional shows in the area.

…and there’s more

Stay tuned.

    Hi Wilfred,
    Another business in Port Maitland is ‘Peggy’s Prime Pet Grooming,’ 3389 Shore Road. 649-2255. Peggy Betts, owner and Certified Groomer. We take our dog, Tang, there regularly, and are very pleased with her friendly, caring attitude towards Tang, and her professional grooming. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good groomer for their dog.

    • Thanks so much for this comment Kim. I encourage any other folks who have suggestions for local businesses to follow Kim’s lead and post a comment or use Musings contact feature. I’ve just finished creating a profile for Peggy’s Pet Grooming. Take a look.
