Our Company

The sea is our life. Without it generations of Newfoundlanders would have perished and died.

Newfoundlanders have lived in harmony with the sea and land for generations and are known as one of the most resourceful people in the world. We had to be. If we didn't adapt, create, or invent we could not have survived. Now traditional lifestyles have been destroyed by the ruination of our fishing industry and the sealskin boycott making the old ways no longer possible.

It is important that people from the world over have an opportunity to share our past so they may have a better understanding of our points of view, our folklore, heritage, and culture. Not only strangers to our land, but also our own children, grand-children, and their children should be aware of their own rich and unique history.

In the early 1980s, Garry Troake began his collectible/antique business. He soon built a reputation of respect, honesty, integrity, and craftsmanship buying, selling, importing and exporting a wide variety of products ranging from Newfoundland books to furniture. He believed very strongly in the future of Newfoundland, especially the Twillingate area and decided to share the memories of our unique culture through his extensive collection. 

In May 1997, the Long Point Centre opened its doors providing visitors and tourists with an opportunity to view one of the largest private collections of Newfoundland artifacts and memorabilia; interpretive displays of our people and association with the sea, creatures of the sea, models of various sea-going vessels, gear, tools, etc.

Quilts, knitting, sewing, woodworking, sculpture, paintings are just a few of the quality hand-crafted items offered for sale in our Craft Shop.
