Jungle Imports is the most funky, cool, unique shop in Bancroft, Ontario. Sure it has handcrafted jewellery, clothing, purses, musical instruments, home décor and accessories, but what makes it extra special is the owner, Gordon.
Every time I visit Jungle Imports, I'm greeted as an old friend. Gordon always has time to chat about the town, cottage living, nature and of course his remarkable shop.
Located at the south end of Bancroft, Jungle Imports invites cottagers and locals to browse, chat and relax in a serene atmosphere.
What I especially like about Gordon, is he buys his inventory from local artists and global artists directly.
With the current disaster in Bangladesh, I am comforted that my dollar supports a local business and artists.
And a dollar goes a long way at Jungle Imports as the prices are more than reasonable.
If you find yourself in Bancroft this summer, stop by Jungle Imports, tell Gordon that Sandra says HI and help support a Canadian business.
