Weathered, also known as “Minto’s Best Export” is owned and operated by long-time Minto resident Andy Pridham. Andy constructs a variety of beautiful products including reclaimed wood tables, re-purposed industrial items, laser cut marquee letters and vintage replica signs. Andy’s products are produced using a majority of Minto suppliers and are all sold in the GTA.
Andy is a graduate of Norwell District Secondary School and has been a resident of Minto his whole life. His work has taken him across Canada and the United States but he has always appreciated being able to come home. “Minto has everything I could ask for as a home base. All of my suppliers are local and their talents allow me to do what I do”.
What does Andy love most about doing business in Minto? “I enjoy a simple life and a connection with the community. I am a very resourceful person and the more I look around the area to make my many ideas work, I find I’m surrounded by the same mind set and resourcefulness as I try to provide my customers with. Without the local talent my business would not have moved forward so quickly being a one-man show”.
