Stages and Stores was established to bring some of the best in Newfoundland and Labrador hand crafted products to the world. Our name has been derived from the familiar outport buildings - stages and stores - often seen in the fishing communities of Newfoundland & Labrador. Change Islands, home of Stages and Stores is often called the "Fishing Stage Capital of the World" due to the number of these traditional structures found here.

Stages and Stores features products made by artisans in the Change Islands, Fogo and Twillingate areas. Our product lines include canvas mats, fused glass and hand knit wool socks.

Stages and Stores has a retail e-commerce web site and also provides products at wholesale to retail shop owners and galleries.

In 2011, Stages and Stores opened the Change Islands Knitting Economuseum where visitors can see knitters demonstrate the hand knitting techniques from the past that live on in our products today.
