Friends and Prairie Sky family 💙
Prairie Sky will be closing for in-person shopping effective immediately. We will open again, as soon as we’re responsibly able to do so. This is going to be hard on us, as it is on all small businesses, but the health of our community is our top priority.
While you won’t be able to visit us in the shop, I will be focused on building our online store. We currently sell things online via Instagram (@prairieskybooks and @prairieskyvintage) and on Facebook.
The way this usually works is
1. You see an item you love and send us a message
2. We let you know the total with tax of the item(s) and shipping, if applicable.
3. We accept an e-transfer or credit card over the phone.
4. We hold the item until you’re ready to pick it up, or we mail it out via Canada Post.
While we are closed you WILL be able to pick items you’ve ordered up at the store during the week. You can come in, or (preferably) we can bring it right outside to you.
(I am looking into arranging a drop off on your porch/etc, for a small fee.)
I will be posting items frequently, and would love if you’d consider sharing our posts!
On behalf of Francine, Lisa, Cass, Jenn and myself, thank you. We will miss seeing you (AND YOUR DOGS!) and we wish you the best of health and happiness in these uncertain times.
Be well and happy,
I love October! It’s always busy with out-of-store book displays and conferences, family birthdays, AND Prairie Sky’s anniversary!
Prairie Sky turns 41 this month, and we hope you’ll join us for our birthday party on Saturday, October 26 from 10-6!
We’re excited to announce a new venture at Prairie Sky Books; Prairie Sky Vintage!
As some of you may know, we’ve been carrying a selection of vintage decor pieces recently, and it’s been a hit!
Before I bought the store in October, we were carrying a few vintage items that I sourced, and I hosted a number of vintage pop-up sales at the shop. We always thought that the combination of vintage and our regular stock were a great combination, and I was in a unique position to get a feel for what Prairie Sky’s customers liked.
I’ve always loved vintage, (my first job at 15 was at a thrift store) and I come from a long line of collectors, who are always on the hunt. The items I love finding for Prairie Sky are bohemian, unique, colourful and unusual. I’m the kind of girl who gets excited about macrame plant hangers and fabrics, antique baskets and vintage wicker. My personal collections include midcentury-modern Cathrine Holm enamelware, Holt Howard vintage kitties (how did this happen?), embroidered art, Fiestaware and stacks of linens. I’m really drawn to ’60s and ’70s decor, and that’s what I tend to focus on when buying for our little boho-hippie store.
I hope you’ll follow along with us as we launch our new Instagram page, Prairie Sky Vintage! We’ll be posting some great vintage and one-of-a-kind items that will be for sale in the store and via Instagram.
Join us on Saturday, June 15th for a vintage sale at Prairie Sky! Take 20% off our regularly stocked vintage items and 20% off new vintage finds that haven’t even hit the shelves yet! We’ll even haul out some of our finest (read: weirdest) macrame for your enjoyment. 😉
Please note that the photos we’ll add to this post are indicative of the type of vintage items that we usually carry. Most of these items are in stock as of posting, but could have sold before the event. Not to worry, fresh vintage finds arrive weekly!
Hope to see you on June 15 for a blast from the past!

A customer recently asked what tarot decks we have in stock, so we thought we should keep a list here with things we regularly have in the store. If you don’t see the deck you’re looking for, please give us a call at (204) 774-6152, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d be more than happy to look into ordering anything for you! We haven’t listed all the prices below, but as a guideline, decks without included books usually run between $30 and $40. Deck/book sets are usually between $35 and $50.
Book of Runes
Native Heart Healing Cards
