Lifa means life in Icelandic. The new store is targeted at renovators, designers and people looking for extraordinary, affordable items
Lifa is the only outlet in Manitoba that sells Amy Howard at Home pre-mixed paints, powders, waxes, spray lacquers and other specialty finishes
Lisa and Leslie, the store owners
"There are other chalk-based paints on the market, but we've experimented with other products and found that the Amy Howard line has the most beautiful colour palette and the best one-coat finish," Lisa said.

Leslie, with sisters Lisa and Carol Magnusson, opened their store in August after renovating a former doctor's office built circa 1980 on Centre St., Gimli's main tourist drive.
