Looking for unique gifts ideas? You’ve come to the right place.
Anyone who has ever shopped till they dropped knows there are—basically—three kinds of shopping:
- downtown stores, where the mom-and-pop shops mix with specialty boutiques and restaurants in a traditional “Main Street” environment
- modern malls and superstores, which offer a great selection of brands in a comfortable and convenient setting, complete with food court
- artisan shopping, in which shoppers comb the countryside in search of unique giftware, antiques, crafts and other out-of-the-ordinary merchandise
Each has its own special appeal, but an experienced shopper will also tell you that it’s not easy to find all three in one locale. That is, unless they shop in Peterborough & the Kawarthas.

Not far away are modern malls, the largest of which is Lansdowne Place in Peterborough, newly expanded with over 70 merchants in an inviting indoor atmosphere with Kawartha style. And out of town, the road leads to dozens of possibilities: artists’ studios, antique barns, roadside stands, garden centres and much more. Take a piece of Peterborough & the Kawarthas home with you.
There are countless places to satisfy you inner shopper. And you can reach them in a matter of minutes. Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply has never shopped in Peterborough & the Kawarthas.
