While you are enjoying the facilities of our marina, I would like to extend an invitation for you to visit me and my staff at our store. Being a fashion conscious woman, my goal as a retailer is to provide my customers with the qualities I would like a store to provide, including; friendly service coupled with a blend of clothing articles that I would not find at other stores. To achieve that goal, we pay special attention to customer’s needs, caring about how you look and how you feel. We carry numerous clothing lines yet remain selective in the articles we buy. Our styles range from day to evening wear and some of our name brands include Elisa Cavaletti, Simon Chang and J’idee, just to name a few.

The story begins . . .
Lisa and Mary kept on running into each other at flea markets, estate sales and auctions. They soon struck up a conversation only to realize that they both shared the same passion… finding the perfect bargain. Lisa’s keen eye for vintage treasures, combined with Mary’s ability to transform them, led to “My Back Shed”.
A small shed in Lisa’s backyard was quickly filled to the rafters with antiques, collectibles and refurbished treasures. Initially “My Back Shed” was open every second Sunday, but word soon spread of our little shop and our business soon grew.
Today . . .
Our first shop is located at 2359 Lakeshore Road West in Bronte. We are constantly restocking and you are guaranteed to see new pieces every weekend, so don’t wait. And we’re open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm.

After 15 years in Toronto, Trias Gallery has come to Oakville! Enjoying the vibrant community of the ‘Art at 80′ building at the corner of King and Spadina for many years, the gallery has recently moved to a stunning waterfront location at the base of the Shores Condominium in Bronte Village. The name ‘Trias’ is derived from the Greek number for three, representing the relationship between the artist, the dealer, and the collector.
Trias Gallery started as a partnership between Indira Roy Choudhury and Doris Gillick. Indira holds a Fine Art Degree from University of Toronto and an Education Degree from Queen’s. She has lived in Bronte with her husband, John, and son, Connor, for the last 14 years. In 2006, Doris decided to retire, moving from Toronto to Seattle with her husband, Pat Gillick, Baseball Hall of Famer and former G.M. of the Toronto Blue Jays. Doris remains very supportive of the gallery and the two stay in frequent contact.
All the while, Indira has developed a reputation for professionalism, trust, and integrity. The gallery mirrors these ideals with its membership with the Art Dealers Association of Canada. Never an advocate of the hard-sell, Indira excels at pinpointing her clients’ needs and sourcing for them the right piece. Clients also have the option to take art work on approval to consider in their home or office space with the added option of free delivery in the GTA and no obligation to purchase. Indira prides herself on making her gallery a welcoming place where the journey of finding the ‘right’ piece should be as enjoyable as finally making the acquisition.
While in Toronto, Trias Gallery, through the generosity of its artists, donated artwork to many charities and fundraisers, including: St. Joseph’s Hospital, the Children’s Aid Foundation and the Varley Gallery in Unionville. Indira is eager to create ties with local businesses and charitable causes to help promote Canadian Art in Bronte.
Beyond staging successful exhibitions at the gallery space, Trias Gallery was featured at the Toronto International Art Fair / Art Toronto for 8 years. Among the gallery’s formidable artists is Ernestine Tahedl, who was featured on Bravo’s documentary, ‘The Artist’s Life’. A 50 year retrospective show of her career is currently touring Europe. Pat Fairhead and Joanne Helman have recently exhibited in New York City. Another artist, Anne Marie Kornachuk, was featured in the summer edition of ‘International Artist’ magazine.
From bronze and soapstone sculpture to contemporary and traditional paintings, Trias Gallery has a wide range of original work available. The Gallery’s entire inventory can be seen at http://www.triasgallery.com
