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.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Dec. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- It's a big city with a big heart.  Vancouver is often defined by what it's not:  not Toronto though they've got an urban groove, not LA though they're most definitely West Coast, not Montreal, though undoubtedly artistic and fashion forward.   They're not even too cold, though they are absolutely all CANADIAN, all the time.  So what do Vancouverites do when SNOW hits the city on the last shopping weekend before Christmas and most of them don't know how to drive in it.  They WALK and 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.

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  Laurie's pieces are often described as elegant West Coast and are the ideal gift for the woman who loves a little bit of glamour with her sparkle.  Smitten Designs mixes Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls with fine chains to create a wearable, sophisticated, and timelessly classic look.

No need to panic Vancouver!  Shop local at Fine Finds this weekend and LET IT SNOW!
