A Passionate Collector and Friend to Many, meet Patricia
Seventeen years ago, Patricia packed up her family and her entrepreneurial spirit and set her destination for Cottage Country. In 2002, she purchased a Highlands landmark, the beautiful Confederation Log Cabin in West Guilford. Pat, as she is known to friends is a professional Collector. Over time, Pat has developed an amazing network of fine Companies that offer high quality, unique and affordable products. Her top-tier status with CR Plastic Products, the leading provider of high quality 100% Canadian made Outdoor Furniture is a prime example of the value Cottage Country Log Cabin Trading Company brings to Customers. Today, the shop offers hundreds of extremely cool items throughout the 3,000-square foot shopping destination.
In 1994, Jamie Bailey, co-owner and co-founder of C.R. Plastic Products Inc. started manufacturing recycled plastic furniture to divert used plastic away from landfills and oceans. His goal was to make a product that would provide the look and warmth of wood, without the shortcomings associated with maintaining wood furniture. The proprietary extrusion process discovered, improved and customized by Jamie, produces a unique plastic lumber that won’t splint or crack and withstands all weather conditions. This process creates a superior fit and finish, including a beautiful texted-look similar to the grain of wood, and smooth rounded edges for enhanced comfort. Each piece of lumber has an added automotive-grade UV stabilizer and is guaranteed to maintain its beautiful colour for years, without the need for staining or painting.
Measuring about 8 feet high and 6 feet wide, the Big Red Chair is your photo-op waiting to happen. Follow in the footsteps of TV celebrities “Colin & Justin” or Stanley Cup Champion, Bernie Nicholls to get that perfect vacation picture. Afterwards, enjoy the Cottage County fresh air with a stroll around our beautiful gardens.
