Great store to find unique items! There are 2 or 3 linked buildings that are part of this store and each offer something different. It is a great store to visit to get gifts for others (or yourself) that you won't find elsewhere. Prices were also reasonable!

My last visit was disappointing. I saw some earrings I liked that had no price on them. I remarked on this to my friend. A young woman "working" there said, the prices of all the earrings are on the back. She didn't look up from her book. Alas, the prices were not on the back of about half the earrings,... More

We arrived about an hour before closing time during the week, having been delayed by a couple of road detours on our way to the area. It was too bad because I could have spent more time browsing through all the fascinating items on display.

You can't go to Barry's Bay without visiting Grumblin' Granny's! An amazing group of everything through 4 properties of stores. Leave lots of time to see everything...at least an hour. Eclectic, wondrous, cultures, jewelry, folk art, outdoor accessories...on and on.

I was here when Marion first opened Grumblin' Granny's and we became friends. It was my favourite store. I went every year. It's been 18 years since I was last here. Marion has retired and sold it and the shop has tripled in size but the new owner Lynn has kept the theme. I love it still. It was coming... More

After a morning on a family float trip with MKC, we stopped to browse at this unique shop. For the person who has everything, this is the place to shop. A vast array of goods from all over the world, well priced and definitely not available in your average gift shop. It difficult to leave without finding something to tickle... More

A great gift shop--quite large as it extends into different rooms and has an upstairs. Unique items to purchase from clothing, gems, leather, music to statues
