Strathcona Community Tees + Totes

StrathconaCommunityTeesStrathcona has always been in our hearts. My relatives moved into a row home, which is still in the family, near Union Street in the 1920s. My grandma used to take tai chi classes at the Ray Cam Community Centre every Saturday and we would meet the rest of the family there before having dim sum at Pink Pearl or lunch somewhere in Chinatown. I used to walk down to Kenny’s convienence store on East Hastings with my aunt for penny candies and if I didn’t like his selection, we would walk half a block further to Penny’s conveience store. We bought our weekly groceries at Sunrise Market, Rice World, Double Happiness, New Town Bakery, and have been going to the recently destroyed, Daisy Garden, for as long as I can remember. I took my first piano and ballet classes at the Strathcona Community Centre, attended family weddings at Strathcona Church, and most recently, celebrated our son’s first birthday at MacLean Park.

When we set out to find a location for London Fields Shoppe, we never thought we would be in the Heatley Block, but we are super proud to be back in Strathcona and for the opportunity to rediscover new gems and past haunts. We were actually so excited that we asked our friends, Locomotive Clothing, to hand print and design a neighbourhood specific t-shirt. Aren’t they amazing? We have also collaborated with Locomotive Clothing to print the cotton totes shown above with 100% proceeds to the Strathcona Community Centre Association. Shirts are available in various sizes including baby, child, youth, men, and women. Show your neighbourhood pride and find both of these items in-store or online here.

For other neighbourhood love, check out The Pleasant Shop (Mount Pleasant), Brick & Mortar Living (New Westminster), Gatley (Commercial Drive), Stepback (Kitsilano), and Spruce Collective (Fraser Valley).

London Fields Shoppe Pop-Up 2.0 + Thank You!

photoTHANK YOU to all of you for another amazing show! I know that we say this after every event, but really, last weekend was truly special. After moving from the Royal Canadian Legion to the Croatian Cultural Centre to the Maritime Labour Centre (and Templeton Secondary due to the fire), we finally feel at home and it was good to see so many familiar faces and to meet new friends! To those lucky early birds, the line up for swag bags started just after 6am on both days and the last one was snatched up around 7:30am. Yeah, I told you they were * that * good!

LFSpopupFor those of you still needing to finish (or start?) your holiday shopping, we’ll be popping up at Les Amis du Fromage as we patiently wait for our final piece of paperwork from City Hall for our permanent brick and mortar space to be finally opened. We’ll be setting up shop at the “cheese place” once again with a fine selection of our favourite items including Mellifera Bees, Herbivore Botanicals, Olive Soap, Falconware, think & ink studio, Merchant and Mills, Archie’s Press, the leather satchel co, and so much more!

POP-UP in the POP-UP! From Friday, December 19th to Sunday, December 21st, Rogue Florist will be bringing some of her beautiful floral arrangements and wreaths. These will add a festive touch to your home and also make great host / hostess gifts! If you missed out at Got Craft? last weekend, you will want to make sure to pick one up!

London Fields Shoppe offers a smorgasbord of stationery, homewares, prints, vintage, and more. You’ll find tons of treats for both stocking stuffers and as presents under the tree. We’re also the only shop in Vancouver to be carrying the exclusive Strathcona t-shirts hand printed by local designers, Locomotive Clothing and to be stocking danish homeware line, Rice DK! Plus, there’s CHEESE, so it’s win-win.
