When you walk into Cynthia Findlay Antiques, you don't know where to look. Everywhere, items are stacked on each other, hung on the walls and tucked under furniture. It is a feast for the senses and hard to believe that one person could gather so many treasures! If, like myself, you are lucky, you will hear one of Cynthia's many... More

Have never been to an antique store like this one. Fabulous silver. Astonishing jewelry. Remarkable Victorian teapots. Even vintage leather suitcases ('Casablanca', anyone?). Something delightful in every corner....and deep, high quality inventory in all of my interest areas. Knowledgeable employees were there to help, not to push. Tuesday's visit was a great pleasure. At the risk of repeating myself, I've... More

I have visited Cynthia's shop on many times at both the present location and the location prior. I always find it an enjoyable experience, where I can browse at my pace, with no pressure. The staf is always courteous and ready to help. I have also found that on occassion when Cynthia was in the shop, she is more that... More

I have visited Cynthia Findlays antiques and jewellery in the past and present. It's is such an exceptional experience to go there. Gazing through the many jewellery casements to admire her wide selection of jewelled rings, earrings , pendants and bracelets...is better than the delight of Xmas morning. Cynthia has extensive knowledge of her jewels and is always pleasant to... More

My fiancée, now wife, and I first went into Cynthia's store looking for an antique wedding ring. We found an amazing selection, but before picking up the one we loved we had to be sure so we flew to NYC, looked in at least 20 very strange and intimidating jewellery stores before flying right back to Toronto to pick a...

Over the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure of purchasing some beautiful pieces from Cynthia Findlay Antiques. Cynthia has endless patience and an in-depth knowledge of the provenance and details of each piece in her treasure-trove of a store. Not only are her prices fair, she stands behind her merchandise, recently offering me complimentary annual maintenance on... More

Cynthia and her staff were a pleasure to deal with. They took their time with me and didn't apply any pressure. Would definitely recommend for anyone doing ring shopping! Got a gorgeous ring for less than what I expected!

Stunning collection, however everything was significantly over priced. Almost double full retail pricing. As an Avid collector most things were priced significantly over value, and there were lots of reproductions priced above authentic retail prices. I would skip it, it just made me mad, to see how over priced they were on objects I know the actual value of. I... More

I visited and although I did not make a purchase this is good for interesting antique searches. Many interesting and small tems are there and it is worth a visit as it is right downtown. Small "antique" can make interesting gift. Worth a look.

My fiance and I had a great experience choosing my engagement ring at Cynthia Findlay Antiques. I went in with very little knowledge about antique rings, except that I wanted a unique ring to complement my vintage aesthetic. Cynthia was very patient while I tried on a dozen rings and never made me feel rushed. She was respectful of our... More
