On February 24th, 2023, the doors of The Tipped Ship on Main Street in Elgin will open to the public following a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 am. All are welcome. 

In 1893, John R. Dargavel built and opened a general store on the main corner of Elgin. 130 years later, The Tipped Ship opens as an emporium, offering a curated collection of goods which includes artwork and local handcrafts, pottery, clothing, jewelry, gift cards, personal care products, fine foods and drinks, as well as a kids’ section. 

“I bought this building a year and a half ago with a dream in my heart—to open a retail shop that would also be an occasional live music venue,” says owner Trish Bolechowsky. “Getting this historic building ready to open the shop doors has been a careful process built from a thousand details, large and small, and with the support of many helping hands. I’m grateful and also proud to be an active community member and business owner in Elgin. I hope The Tipped Ship becomes a treasured stopping point for residents and visitors alike, and helps enliven “The Hub of the Rideau.”
