This year has gone by in a blink, I am honestly in disbelief that it is already September and that Christmas and Hanukkah are rapidly approaching. I don’t know about you but I have given way too much to Amazon this year and look forward to doing more shopping at small shops for the remainder of the year.
This local store has 3 locations in the lower mainland, Chilliwack, Langley and Surrey in British Columbia. Most of the items that they carry are available for shipping. They carry clothes, accessories, toiletries, baby items, and housewares. All items carried in the store are small local businesses, mostly women owned.
This store is Metis and women owned. They just opened up a beautiful new store in Vernon, BC. They carry a large amount of Canadiana products. Sierra and her team have their own clothing brands (Haus of Birch, Mac&Jill, ATNP and The OKV). They also carry a variety of clothing, lifestyle and accessories.
