Snowing in Vancouver? SHOP LOCAL Instead!
Lots of Vancouverites won't drive when the white stuff arrives even if it lasts for just 24 hours! What do Vancouver urbanites do when it's the biggest shopping weekend of the year and there's buckets of snow on the ground? They shop local instead.
With boots on, an umbrella in their bag (because it will eventually rain), mitts and an enviro-bag tucked in their pocket, it's time to find Vancouver's favourite gift store that city dwellers can walk or bus to.
Meet Vancouver's locally owned Fine Finds, voted the city's best gift shop for five years in a row. Located at 1014 Mainland Street in Yaletown, the city's trendy, upscale renovated warehouse district, Fine Finds has an eclectic mix of gifts for everyone and is easy to get to during this weekend's surprising white weather. http://finefindsboutique.com/
This Saturday and Sunday Fine Finds hosts Meet Your Favourite Jewellery Designer from noon to 6pm. One of the featured artisans attending will be Laurie Simpkins of Smitten Designs http://smittendesigns.ca/
No need to panic Vancouver! Shop local at Fine Finds this weekend and LET IT SNOW!
