Angels in the House at the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Tuck Shop


A long time ago the hospital tuck shop was a well known place for bedside get well gifts and a used book or two for those in the hospital. You could always find something to express well wishes or the perfect thing to thank a nurse, doctor or caregiver for providing great care.

The tuck shop was always there to help with whatever you might need.I have been just as guilty as other residents in Carleton Place, not even bothering to go see what was new in our local tuck shop in the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital. Well my lovelies– these gals not only still carry candy and books– they have some great fashion pieces and neat things in there

So why not treat your loved one or friend to one of these angels by Jacqueline Kent found at the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Tuck Shop. Angels are like diamonds. They can’t be made, you have to find them. Each one is unique- but one of these angels would make the perfect gift. Drop and see how beautiful they are.




Celebrated artist Jacqueline Kent was born in London, England.  From an early age onward, most of her life has been spent residing in Canada and she now makes London, Ontario her home.

Entirely self-taught, she established a reputation as a gifted, character design artist, becoming well known for her true-to-life sculptures, in particular, her distinguished Father Christmas’s and signature Fairy Godmothers.  By the mid-‘90’s, she is empowered by an enormous following in the giftware and collectibles industry and she begins searching for a means to satisfy the needs of an ever-increasing market. She successfully enters the mass production industry and is soon delighting a growing audience with, not only her one-of-a-kind sculptures, but with a vast array of captivating reproductions.
